The SmaRTGas Network has the ambition to build up the world’s largest innovation cluster on small scale thermochemical conversion of biomass/waste to biomethane. The Network comprises 28 partners from 12 countries conducting cutting-edge R&D within biomass gasification, pyrolysis, gas cleaning and methanation as well as stakeholders interested in the business opportunities offered by small scale bioSNG production.
