Using biomass to produce biogas and bio-fertilizers for the transportation and agriculture industry
Through the transformation of biomass into biomethane and bio-fertilizers, CO2 emissions from transportation and agriculture are reduced.
The solution aims to use the available biomass to produce biogas and bio-fertilizers. The biogas is produced from the anaerobic digestion of biomass and later purified to be used as a renewable subsitute to natural gas, called biomethane. As part of the process, polymeric membranes are used for the purification of biogas into biomethane. The digestate is the solid by-product of this process which is valorized through its application as a fertilizer, thus replacing chemical fertilizers. In countries with a distribution network for natural gas, the biomethane produced from this purification process can be directly injected into the gas network or used in transportation.
