Biomethane is a programmable renewable energy source that is obtained by subjecting the biogas to an upgrading process (pre-treatment, purification and separation of methane from carbon dioxide), bringing the concentration of methane (CH4) to exceed 97%.
The use of biomethane has a positive impact on the agri-food industry and the water treatment and organic solid urban waste sectors, in a circular energy perspective. Moreover, it is sustainable: being CO2 neutral, it can also help reduce emissions into the atmosphere.
The need to obtain electrical energy for upgrading and heat for biology is effectively resolved with an ECOMAX® system. This can be combined with the BIOCH4NGE® system, whether fed by methane gas from the grid or by surplus biogas.
The presence of a co-generator makes it possible to save on the consumption of the upgrading plant and, at the same time, to feed the digesters, optimising the energy cycle. A synergy that represents a development opportunity on both an industrial and technical level, in line with current market demands and state incentives.
