Italian demonstration site at Troia

The Italian demonstration site will be realized at Troia, a municipality in the region of Puglia. In this region high PV production capacities are available representing the South European RES situation. The innovative concept at this demo site consists of

  • capturing of CO2 from ambient air
  • modular micro-reactor based methanation concept
  • a “small-scale” liquefaction to supply LNG to a dedicated cryogenic tank
  • an optimized energy management able to follow a proper set of business and strategic objectives

The plant will exploit the hydrogen produced by the electrolyser inherited from the INGRID Project (http://www.ingridproject.eu/), connected to the MV power grid and able to be controlled with the aim to provide balancing services. So the plant will implement a small scale (200kW) PtG solution to convert and move surplus of renewable electricity from power grid to LNG distribution network.
