The first project, Enerfees, is located close to Rennes, joint by the Cooperative des Fermiers de Janze and ENGIE will produce 400 Nm3/h biomethane. The second project, Methagrilou,, near Le Mans will produce 130 Nm3/h of biomethane.
BIOGEST's biomethane plant technology offers significant advantages in energy efficiency and operational safety, as well as an easy and cost-efficient maintenance system. During the fermentation process of both projects 94,400 tonnes (in total) of waste/year are transformed into high-quality organic fertilizer that acts as a substitute for chemical products.

Using IBMS's food waste and biomethane expertise and BayoTech's modular SMR technology the partnership will create renewable hydrogen and high-grade fertiliser products from a multi-purpose eco facility. The project will produce 1,000 kilograms of renewable hydrogen per day to fuel zero-emission vehicles in London and Surrey.
Further phases of the project will see carbon capture introduced to take the project from carbon neutral to carbon negative. The system is due to be online by Q2 of 2022, following which the system will be deployed at multiple locations around the UK to create a national network of carbon negative hydrogen production facilities.
According to the release, regional hydrogen production and distribution reduces unnecessary costs, storage, and transport leading to a reduced carbon footprint overall when compared with traditional production models and electrolyser systems.

Engineering work will commence immediately with a notice to proceed on equipment fabrication expected later this year. This project will be the first commercial-scale biogas upgrading system deployed in Colombia, producing clean, low-carbon renewable natural gas (RNG) for direct injection into the local natural gas grid.
The second contract is for the supply of Greenlane's water wash biogas upgrading system in Spain. Order fulfillment of this contract will commence immediately, however, and for further transparency, the customer has a two-week period in which it may exercise an option to halt further activity with no penalty. For competitive reasons, individual contract amounts have not been disclosed at this time.
"Greenlane continues to expand its pioneering global reach with a new system contract win in Colombia, which marks Greenlane's 19th country for technology deployment and 12th country to be the first to supply biogas upgrading equipment. Supplying biogas upgrading equipment for the first time into Columbia is further evidence that RNG continues to be globally recognized as a key component of the overall decarbonization solution.

Companies are required to apply to Zemo Partnership to become an approved Renewable Fuel Supplier and demonstrate compliance with the scheme performance criteria and undergo an annual compliance check. This entails independent verification of company procedures, processes and renewable fuel production data by an auditor, according to the Zemo website.
Once approved renewable fuel supplier will be able to issue their customers with 'Renewable Fuel Declarations' every three months for batches of sustainable low carbon fuels sold.

ADBA notes that AD biogas 'ready-to-use' technology helps cut emissions in the hardest-to-decarbonize sectors of heat, transport and agriculture. Upgraded to biomethane, biogas can be injected into the grid with no changes needed to the existing gas infrastructure and used as a green transportation fuel, ADBA notes.
In the last decade, the UK AD sector grew 350 pct and is now employing over 3500 people. But it still needs policy incentives and investment to reach its full potential. In 2019, 650 AD plants across the UK produced 10.7TWh of energy. Over the next 10 years, ADBA anticipates that in addition to reducing emissions by 22.5m tonnes of CO2-equivalent every year -- about 5 pct of total UK greenhouse gases emissions -- it has the potential to meet nearly 20 pct of current domestic gas demand while providing 30,000 new green jobs in rural areas. The sector has also developed world-leading expertise which gives the UK a real opportunity to be at the heart of a growing global biogas industry, according to the release.
