Biogas to support Energy Transition
Supporting the energy transition, GroupATP has developed the engineering for the pre-treatment of small scale bio-LNG production facility. In order, for the biomethane, to be liquefied, the content of H2O and CO2 shall be within pipeline specifications (in particular dew point -70°C).
GroupATP has used combined membranes and PSA technologies – falling under its XCO technology package – to arrange the unit, able to convert 400 Nm³/h of raw biogas into bio-LNG.
The process of pressure methanation produces fuel-compatible biomethane, which can be used as bio-CNG gas in tractors and other agricultural machinery. Furthermore, by adding fine cleaning and liquefaction processes, we can generate Bio-LNG, i.e. liquefied biomethane, which can then be used as truck fuel.
This is a possible solution towards the energy transition in the heavy goods transport sector, where electromobility is still a long way off.
This is just one way in which we support energy transition. Check our equipment for Cleantech here.
