In order to enable this evaluation of the current biogas quality situation in the EU; results are presented in a biogas database. Furthermore the key gas parameter Sonic Bievo Index (influence on open loop A/F-ratio) is defined and other key gas parameters like the Methane Number (knock resistance) are made available in a biogas calculation tool. Finally the results of the study of the influence of biogas quality on the engine performance of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV), efficiency and emission are presented.
