Biomethane

Energy360 can upgrade the biogas generated by anaerobic digestion, using world leading biogas to biomethane upgrading technology.

The upgraded biomethane can then be injected to the grid, which enables customers to utilise the valuable, onsite biogas to generate an income stream and offset the profit impact of natural gas price increases without risk to the site’s processing operations.

Biogas to biomethane upgrading is a leading solution for carbon-free manufacturing.

The technology is robust, proven and will be delivered by Energy360, Australia’s leading biogas handling company.

What is biomethane?

A naturally occurring gas which is produced by the so-called anaerobic digestion of organic matter such as dead animal and plant material, manure, sewage, organic waste, etc.

Chemically, it is identical to natural gas which is stored deep in the ground and is also produced from dead animal and plant material.

However, there are several important differences between it and fossil fuel derived methane despite the fact that both are produced from organic matter.

Biomethane production eliminates the release of a great deal of methane and other harmful gases into the atmosphere. This is due to the fact that its production eliminates exposure of the decomposing organic matter to the air which prevents methane and other gases from escaping into the atmosphere.

In addition, it reduces the need for fossil fuels by which it further reduces the emissions of greenhouse gases into the air.

Since it is chemically identical to natural gas, it can be used for the same applications as natural gas. It can be used for electricity generation, water heating, space heating, cooking as well as to fuel vehicles.
