In the presented work, we performed an integrated techno-environmental assessment of hydrogen production from woody biomass gasification, combined with CO2 capture and storage (CCS). We have included three different types of gasification technologies for syngas production. CO2 is captured from the syngas with conventional amine-based technology. Based on our integrated approach linking detailed process simulation with Life Cycle Assessment, we are able to quantify benefits and potential trade-offs of a wide range of process configurations from both technical and environmental perspectives in a consistent way. We have also performed a comparative evaluation of hydrogen use in fuel cell electric vehicles (passenger cars and freight trucks), to investigate the role of hydrogen in decarbonizing the transport sector.
