About Biomethane

Biomethane is a renewable energy source which can be used in a number of different ways, including to generate power and heat as well as for transport fuel. Biomethane can be obtained from various agricultural raw materials and residues. In particular, since it can be made from materials which would otherwise largely go to waste such as manure, slurry, organic waste and straw, biomethane is a renewable energy source that does not compete with food.

Biomethane technology can be purified to the quality of natural gas and fed into the existing European gas grid. In fact biomethane has the same chemical composition as natural gas.

Biomethane is the most efficient biofuel there is. It has a much higher energy density than biodiesel or bioethanol and is suitable for all vehicles running on natural gas. Compared to gasoline biomethane reduces CO2 emissions by up to 90% and fuel costs by ca. 50%
