Biogaz Europe is the leading international exhibition for green, renewable gas - ie biogas, biomethane (upgrading, methanation) and biognv - which is produced from organic waste streams.
The exhibition brings together the entire sector covering the feedstock supply chain and its pretreatment, the entire process of methanisation and digestate management to energy recovery, including co/tri-generation, upgrading and methanation to biomethane and biognv fuels.
A broad programme for the two days including a rich international conference programme with simultaneous translation, international business meetings, study tours, the innovation competition etc.. and three parallel complimentary events for biomass energy and water treatment make Biogaz Europe the unmissable meeting point for 2019 !
FEEDSTOCK : Substrates to feed anaerobic digestion are sourced from a multiple of streams : agricultural, animal, agro-alimentary and restaurant waste, intermediary crops , organic fraction from waste treatment centers, waste water etc.
PROCESS : The anaerobic digestion process occurs in a digester by way of microbial and bacterial interaction with the substrates supported by heat and time. The resulting biogas is primarily composed of CH4 and CO2 with smaller amounts of H2S and ammonia.
OUTPUTS : Biogas can be combusted in a gas engine or it can be upgraded to a pure methane quality. The residual C02 can be processed with H2 (generated from excess wind or solar energy) to produce additional methane, a process known as methanation.
ENERGY RECOVERY : the energy recovery opportunities of biogas are pure heat(or steam) or heat & power. Biomethane can be injected directly into the gas network or utilised for transport (a fuel termed biongv - bio natural gas for vehicles).
