The Netherlands-headed technology specialist Bright Renewables, part of HoSt Group has announced that it has been contracted for a new biogas upgrading project with membrane technology in the province of Barcelona, Spain.

According to a statement, the project in the province of Barcelona comprises two waste streams that combined produce up to 500 Nm3 biogas per hour – 320 Nm3 from a municipality waste stream and 150 Nm3 from a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) stream.

This will be purified by the upgrader to 270 Nm3 of biomethane (aka renewable natural gas – RNG) per hour and fed into the gas grid.

By upgrading the biogas to biomethane, the client takes another step forward toward a more sustainable business. It is great that we can be part of this process by supplying technology that enhances the potential and use of their available biogas. Biogas upgrading is an important technology to develop sustainable energy goals and increase the production of renewable gas in Spain. We are eager to develop this project and see great potential in the Spanish market for Bright with multiple projects in the pipeline, said Orgita Gjonca, Area Sales Manager at Bright Renewables.

Bright will provide the biogas upgrading technology, a PurePac Compact, in a standardized plug-and-play 40ft compact housing.

The project is currently in the engineering phase and construction will begin in early 2023. The first gas-to-grid is planned for the end of summer 2023.

Bright has previously completed a bioCNG project in Spain.
