BioCat Project

  • Project Description

    The BioCat Project focused on demonstrating the technical and economic potential of a cutting-edge energy storage technology known as power-to-gas – this project was successfully completed in December 2016. In addition, Electrochaea continues to maintain and operate the BioCat Plant as a demonstration site, which is open for visitors. Inside the bioreactor, a culture of methanogenic archaea metabolizes the hydrogen and carbon dioxide to methane.
