Biomethane is a renewable gas derived from Biogas. It has characteristics and usage conditions similar to those of methane gas, making it suitable for injection into the natural gas network.

Representing a bioenergy carrier with considerable potential, biomethane can be used without any mixing and without the need to modify equipment currently powered by natural gas.

Using biomethane plants helps avoid carbon release into the atmosphere, with almost no additional emissions that could harm the environment. This renewable gas represents a purified biogas energy form ready for use.

The use of this energy source proves to be flexible and programmable: biomethane can be transported and stored to adapt to the various territorial and temporal conditions of energy demand in every sector of use.

Biomethane can be distributed for vehicle fuel or injected into the natural gas network, offering significant operational and economic benefits.

Biomethane production can be derived from various types of biomass such as:

  • Organic waste (organic fraction of municipal solid waste),
  • Fruit and vegetable residues,
  • Food industry residues,
  • Canteen scraps,
  • Slaughterhouse waste,
  • Fish processing residues.
