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

Record Biomap - European project about biomethane at small and medium scalefunded through Horizon 2020


Upcoming next workshop - SAVE THE DATE

The next stakeholder workshop will take place in November 2017 in Poland.

Place: Energy Expo Arena in Ostróda, Poland

Date: 29.11.2017

Title: Innovative solutions for small and medium biogas plants

This workshop will be organised by UWM - University of Warmia and Mazury (Poland) in the framework of the European project Record Biomap (funded under Grant Agreement No. 691911).



Technical workshop on biomethane production in small and medium scale units

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


The workshop took place on 28 March 2017 in Leipzig, Germany and gathered more than 30 stakeholders from the biogas / biomethane sector. 

The workshop presented innovative technology solutions for biogas pre-treatment, digestion and systems for upgrading the biogas to so-called biomethane, which has the potential to replace natural gas or can be used as "green" vehicle fuel.

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. Therefore, this workshop presented and discussed some promising technology solutions and brought together technology developers with potential end users.
