This paper analyzes the integration of two different methanation technologies – fixed bed adiabatic and fluidised bed isothermal - in a SNG production process and the consequences for the overall process energy conversion performance. The different operating conditions of the two methanation technologies lead to a change in temperature levels and quantities of recoverable heat, respectively, but also to differences in the overall processes’ power consumption. Using pinch methodology for optimal internal heat recovery in combination with flowsheeting software (ASPEN Plus), the two methanation alternatives are fitted into the SNG production process. The potential power production from recovered process heat is analysed based on the Carnot efficiency and compared to the overall power consumption within the SNG process. Both methanation alternatives perform equally within the given boundary conditions, resulting in an output of SNG of 63.3 MWLHV per 100 MWLHV dry fuel input and a ratio of about 1.22 between theoretical power production and overall power consumption.
