Technological developments made at the CNETE affect, among others, the fields related to the renewable energy, pharmaceutical, food, and environmental industries.

The recognized expertise of the CNETE has helped several development & technology transfer projects in the biogas sector. To support its expertise, the CNETE has three platforms dedicated to anaerobic digestion:

  • Laboratory (BMP, BHP, 5l, 10l)
  • Pilot 300 liters
  • Mobile Platform 4500 liters

The CNETE is able to offer you support for your projects by offering the following services:

  • Quantification of the deposit that may be upgraded to biogas
  • Characterization of the deposit
  • Evaluation of the methanogenic potential of the different fractions of the deposit – BMP
  • Qualification of the different fractions of the deposit
  • Development of revenue and mixing ratios
  • Evaluation of potential technologies (pretreatments, digesters, biogas valorization)
  • Techno-economic analysis of the project
  • Piloting: validation and optimization of mixture ratios and operating parameters
  • Training and technical support to start
  • Accompaniment during startup of the plant
  • Support to plant operations
  • Troubleshooting
