BioPower2Gas (site 1)

  • Project Description

    The power-to gas combination of electrolysis and biological methanation technology represents an essential component for future energy systems, combining decentralised solutions for storage of energy with upgrading of raw biogas. During this project various power controlled biogas technologies have been analyzed, experienced in practice and compared in terms of their capability to generate electricity demand-actuated. For this, a new “BioPower2Gas”-method (methanation of H2 produced with surplus renewable electricity and CO2 from the biogas plant) was installed by the company MicrobEnergy. This method was successfully tested and due to become practice-approved and was tested by three plants.
