In industry, biomethane can be used in the exact same way as natural gas, as a process gas or as a raw material for the production of the material. What advantages does green gas offer you? Currently, a large amount of hard coal and lignite is still being used, which is why the CO2 savings potential compared to fossil fuels is enormous. The use of biomethane produces very low emissions. It is therefore perfectly suitable for replacing fossil raw materials with renewable energy sources.
Sustainable and Green Production
As part of their sustainability strategies, more and more companies are paying attention to environmentally-compatible manufacturing that conserves natural resources. They are looking to renewable energies such as biomethane for the supply of electricity and heating, and in the production process. In many sectors of modern industry, the commitment to the environment already extends beyond these measures – for instance by placing value on renewable sources when selecting raw materials, or by equipping fleets with vehicles that run on bio-natural gas. For environmental and climate protection, sustainability and the conservation of dwindling resources will play a key role for company competitiveness in the 21st century.
A valuable raw material in chemistry
In the chemical industry, biomethane is used for ammonia and hydrogen production in the steam reformer. When converted into synthesis gas, biomethane can also be used to produce various basic chemicals. These can be used to produce a range of different products – from fertilizers and bioethanol to bio-hydrogen and plastics.
Our service for you:
With our in-depth experience we will help you become a bio-based industry. More and more of our partners are pursuing a more sustainable approach and are replacing natural gas, a fossil raw material, with renewable biomethane – saving resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We are happy to supply you with all required biomethane qualities from a single source and to document the sustainability characteristics along the entire supply chain.
Approximately 3% of Germany’s natural gas requirement is for the chemical industry for material use. Here, natural gas, a fossil fuel, could be entirely substituted by biomethane.
42% of natural gas sales are to industrial companies. For the purpose of green production, these could be entirely replaced by biomethane.
