RENEWABLE BIOMETHANE GENERATION SYSTEM

2016

The Renewable Electrical Energy Systems (SEER UPC) research group has been involved in the development of a renewable biomethane generation system, using CO2 from biofuel production processes and electrical energy from excess renewable energy generated through a bioelectrochemical process.

 

This new system for storing energy in the form of biomethane will increase the penetration of renewable energies, which will reduce greenhouse gas emission and energy dependence. Other participants in the consortium are Gas Natural Fenosa (the project leader), Dutt and Leitat. The project was funded through Retos-Colaboración 2016, provided by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
