Twinning for promoting excellence, ability and knowledge to develop advanced waste gasification solutions
Paper in proceeding, 2021

The H2020 project TWIN-PEAKS emphasises on promoting excellence and knowledge to develop advanced waste gasification solutions as well as incorporating power-to-X concept (PtX) by establishing a research and innovation collaboration between Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI, Lithuania), Vytautas Magnus University (VDU, Lithuania), Technical University of Munich (TUM, Germany), Chalmers University of Technology (CTH, Sweden), and WIP (Germany). The final goal is to raise the scientific excellence, capacities and international reputation of LEI and VMU in these respective fields. This will be achieved by the planned project activities, such as training, summer schools, conference and outreach events, dedicated for early-stage and advanced researchers. One of the key activities and milestones is the adoption of a joint research strategy between project partners, which is based on three research pillars: (plasma-enhanced) gasification processes, (plasma-assisted) methanation and feedstocks and utilization pathways. The strategy fully reflects the aims and goals of Lithuania and European Union, which are defined in Lithuania’s National Energy Independence Strategy, a national law on the Usage of Alternative Fuels and European Green Deal, including circular economy and climate change initiatives and ambitions. A short outlook regarding the current situation and perspectives in waste-to-energy and power-to-X in Lithuania is also described. Finally, a short description on how the adopted research strategy may contribute to the achievement of the goals defined in national and EU initiatives is also provided.
