Bright Biomethane commissions biogas upgrading plant in Scotland
Netherlands-based bioenergy technology specialists HoSt has announced that its subsidiary Bright Biomethane has announced that it has successfully commissioned a new biogas upgrading system in a small village in the north of Scotland. The system facilitates the production of biomethane from biogas, which is produced from various waste residues.
According to Bright Methane, a unique feature of this installation is its ability to expand the production of biomethane by adding additional upgrading membrane modules. This system will initially produce 600 Nm3 per hour of biomethane from 1 000 Nm3/hr biogas but can be extended in the future to produce 720 Nm3/hr from 1 200 Nm3/hr biogas.
The produced biomethane is directly injected into the Scottish gas grid and is sufficient for supplying roughly 2,600 Scottish households with biomethane, used for cooking and heating. After the installation of additional upgrading modules, another 500 households can be supplied with biomethane.
