Biomethane: Tomorrow's green gas

Today, biogas is generally used directly at the place where it is produced in a CHP unit. However, biogas can also be upgraded to natural gas quality and fed directly into the natural gas network. This way, the upgraded gas can be transported flexibly and economically to the site of use. Here, the gas can be used to generate electricity and/or heat with enormous efficiency, or it can be used as fuel.

The membrane technology – easy and safe

The so called “membrane method” uses the principle of selective permeation. For this purpose, the highly-efficient gas separation modules SEPURAN® Green, developed by Evonik Industries, are used. Gases with higher solubility as well as smaller molecular volumes (CO2) penetrate the membrane very quickly. Large, less soluble gases (CH4) go through the membrane more slowly.
