Making biomethane production efficient
Our goal is to position biomethane as a substitute for fossil fuels
SEMPRE-BIO in numbers
Boosting biomethane production
To comply with the European Green Deal
We will demonstrate novel and cost-effective biomethane technologies production, deemed essential to achieve the Europe’s security of energy supply, the European Green Deal and climate and energy targets for 2030 and 2050.
More specifically, our work is focused on:
Biomethanation production optimization.
Upgrading of economies of scale in biogas.
Modularization and containerization of solutions.
Taking advantage of excess capacity of already-built infrastructure.
Facilitate local circular projects.
New revenue streams and valorisation.
Demonstration at nearly industrial scale of novel conversion technologies biomass.
From models to reality
We will test our technologies in three European scenarios
A foolproof strategy to a major challenge
Our approach is divided into 7 work packages
Creation of the three European Biomethane Innovation Ecosystems. Baix Llobregat (CO2 biomethanation and H2 production via PEM water electrolysis), Bourges (Woody biomass pyrolysis and syngas CO methanation) and Adinkerke (Cryogenic biogas upgrading).
We expect to meet four specific mid-term outcomes
As long-term impacts will enable more efficient energy supply since biomethane is a substitute of imported liquid natural gas (LNG) and of transport fuels. This will involve a cleaner, more sustainable, and more secure energy supply.
Increase cost-effectiveness of the conversion in biomethane productionn
Diversify the conversion technology basis for biomethane product.
Contribute to market up-take of biomethane related technologies in the gas market.
Contribute to the demonstration at nearly industrial-scale novel conversion technologies to produce biomethane from wastewater and woody biomass.
