BioMethER will construct, operate and monitor two demonstration plants for biomethane production for grid injection and for transport use, one prototype for landfill biogas upgrading and one prototype for wastewater treatment biogas upgrading.
The plants will lead to:
       ➤ 675,000 m3 biomethane injected in the natural gas grid
       ➤ 420,000 m3 biomethane used for transport
       ➤ 2,100 tons avoided CO2 emissions

BioMethER partners will:
  • Adjust and optimize biogas upgrading technologies based on membranes for landfill biogas and for municipal sewage sludge biogas
  • Evaluate biomass waste availability in the Emilia-Romagna region including agricultural and agroindustrial by-products, waste and organic waste, as well as the overall methanogenic potential in the region
  • Realize regional guidelines supporting the regional administration in the design of specific policies fostering biomethane value chain development
  • Quantify the impacts of biomethane production by monitoring biomass source characteristics, process efficiency, produced energy, avoided CO2 emissions, with a LCA approach.
