"For more efficiency in small to medium scale biomethane production." 


Technical workshop on biomethane production in small and medium scale units

Technical Workshop on Biomethane Production in Small and Medium Scale Units on 28.03.2017 in Leipzig, Germany


Date: 28 March 2017

Place: Leipzig, Germany


Kubus - Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ
Permoserstraße 15
04318 Leipzig

Room: Saal 2B (2nd floor)

→ Directions to Kubus / UFZ

Objectives: So far biomethane production has only established in large scale applications as there are still many challenges to be solved in order to make small to medium scale biomethane production economically feasible and widely accessible to European farmers. The project Record Biomap is monitoring the technology development in this sector and aiming to foster the use of research outcomes. To bridge the gap between research and market, a knowledge transfer platform will be established to support the dissemination and exploitation and bring the industry sector, the end users and other important stakeholders together.

This workshop will present and discuss the most promising technology solutions along the biomethane supply chain in the sectors substrate pretreatment, digestion and gas upgrading for the use of biomethane as a fuel or for feed-in to the natural gas grid.
