Bio-methane – Intelligent applications for a clean environment
The use of renewable energies as alternative means of generating power from fossil fuels is making a vital contribution to the consistent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The crude biogas extracted from biomass which, thanks to the very latests technologies can be treated to natural gas quality (known as "bio-methane"), is playing an important role in this context.
Bio-methane treatment has many advantages. It has firmly established itself in recent years and its use is constantly on the increase.
The direct use of bio-methane as a fuel is an alternative to feeding into the natural gas grid. In both cases, the bio-methane is treated and then compressed before being made available for further transport or storage.
Based on our many years of experience of high-pressure systems, BAUER has developed tailor-made compressor units with medium-pressure and high-pressure compressors for these bio-methane applications, providing you with solutions for:
- Bio-methane filling stations: Use of bio-methane as a fuel for vehicles
- Infeed compressor units: Infeed of bio-methane into the natural gas grid
- Recompressor units: Recompression of natural gas (natural gas bio-methane mixtures) into higher-grade grids
Consultancy and engineering
When bio-methane is treated to natural gas quality, the stations can be designed and built in the same way as natural gas stations: bio-methane filling stations, infeed compressor units or recompressor units. Based on your technical and commercial circumstances, we will work together with you to develop your ideal refuelling solution. Read more
Infeed compressor units
BAUER offers proven technology to feed "bio-methane" biogas treated to natural gas quality into different types of natural gas grid at pressure stages starting from PN 10, 10 barg operating pressure. Forwarding of the bio-methane through an existing natural gas grid safeguards good gas supply with blanket coverage and guaranteed consumption of bio-methane. Read more
