Choosing the appropriate upgrading technology for your project
There is no one-size-fits-all approach in upgrading biogas into biomethane (or RNG – Renewable Natural Gas).
In addition to a balance of Capex and Opex costs, compatible with the expected raw gas volumes, other factors come into play, such as: source and quality of raw gas, technology readiness, plant availability, as well as type of end use, grid injection pressure, surface area requirements, possible local heat source, etc.
Main topics covered:
- Process stages
- Main upgrading technologies (membranes, PSA, chemical scrubbing, water scrubbing, cryogenic)
- Performance profiles
- Emissions and CO2 recovery
Speaker: Prof. Eng. Mario A. Rosato, author of “Managing Biogas Plants – A Practical Guide” (CRC Press, 2017), has a wide ranging experience in anaerobic digestion, with a specific experience in plant diagnostics and process control. As a biogas expert, he actively participated in the working group that created the new UNI 11703:2018 standard for biomethane potential assessment (BMP).
