Our membrane upgrading process with Evonik SEPURAN® Green delivers a constant high biomethane grade with yields of over 99%. In other words, almost all the methane is recovered in bio natural gas quality.
Evonik has developed an innovative membrane technology for upgrading biogas into biomethane. With SEPURAN® Green membranes, biomethane yields of above 99% can be achieved.
Evonik has developed a patented biogas upgrading process that makes best use of the membranes’ separation properties: Through skillful connection of SEPURAN® Green membranes it is possible to obtain methane yields of over 99% from the crude gas. Just one compressor is needed.
SEPURAN® Green membranes have the highest CO2/CH4 selectivity and are therefore a superior technology for upgrading biogas. This selectivity of the membranes enables the production of high purity biomethane with superior methane recovery. This distinguishes the Evonik membranes from other membranes that are available.
Biogas comes from the biogas plant as a mixture of CO2, methane and the typical secondary components, and is first desulfurized, filtered and pre-dried with activated carbon. The pre-treated gas is then compressed to 10 – 20 bar, and upgraded to biomethane and a CO2-rich waste gas flow using several membrane stages.
