131 Synthetic Natural Gas From Coal, Dry Biomass, and Power-to-Gas Applications Tilman J. Schildhauer & Serge M. A. Biollaz • Provides an overview of the different pathways to produce Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) • Covers technological, and economic aspects of this SNG • Details the most popular technologies and state-of-the-art of SNG technologies while also covering recent and future research trends • Covers the main process steps during conversion of coal and dry biomass to SNG: gasification, gas cleaning, methanation and gas upgrading • Describes a number of novel processes for the production of SNG with their specific combination of process steps as well as the boundary conditions • Covers important technical aspects of Power-to-Gas processes Print ISBN: 978-1-118-54181-4 | CL | €112.00 | AUG 2016 | 328PP About the Authors Tilman J. Schildhauer is a Senior Scientist at Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland since 2005, working mainly in the field of converting dry biomass to Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) and electricity. These activities aim at developing sustainable and (energetically and economically) efficient processes based on the analysis of the complete process chain on the one hand and investigation of the fundamentals of the crucial process steps on the other hand. Since 2014, he is also Scientific Coordinator of the Energy Systems Integration platform at Paul Scherrer Institut. Dr. Schildhauer has authored over 60 scientific papers and two book chapters. Serge Biollaz is the Head of the Thermal Process Engineering group at Paul Scherrer Institut since 2000. In 2006/2007 he spent a sabbatical leave at Gas Technology Institute (GTI), Chicago, USA, working on catalytic biomass gasification, hot gas cleaning and integration of biomass/coal gasification with high temperature fuel cells (SOFC). Serge Biollaz co-authored more than 50 scientific papers and is national expert in the IEA Bioenergy, Task 33 Thermal gasification of biomass (since 2003), as well as expert on SNG in the European Biofuels Technology Platform (EBTP), WG2 “Conversion” (since 2009.) Bentonite Handbook Lubrication for Pipe Jacking Steffen Praetorius & Britta Schößer Pipe jacking is a construction process for the no-dig laying of pipes. Successful pipe jacking demands low skin friction between the ground and the jacked pipe, which is achieved with bentonite lubrication. The bentonite slurry fed into the annular gap fulfils several purposes. It stabilises the annular gap by supporting the surrounding ground and reduces friction contact between ground and jacked pipe. The Bentonite Handbook deals comprehensibly with the relevant aspects of annular gap lubrication: starting with the ground conditions, which are of decisive importance for lubrication, through the rheological properties of the bentonite slurry to the technical components of lubrication technology and lubrication strategy. The use of standardised measuring apparatus is described as well as mixing equipment and the automatic lubrication system. Overview tables with calculations and suggested values for bentonite consumption quantities depending on the prevailing ground conditions and the pipe jacking parameters complete the recommendations.
