Air Liquide announces the commissioning of 12 biogas purification units in the last 12 months in Europe. With these new units, Air Liquide triples its biogas purification capacity on the European continent. Overall, Air Liquide has designed and deployed worldwide 50 biogas purification units in order to transform biogas into biomethane and inject it into the natural gas networks.
The 12 new biogas purification units commissioned by Air Liquide are located in France, in the United Kingdom, in Hungary and in Denmark. Five of these units, representing a total investment of 12 million euros ($13.63 million), are operated by Air Liquide. They generate long-term contracts for the production of biomethane for Europe’s natural gas grids, which supply notably the transportation fleets that run on bio-natural gas for vehicles (bio-NGV).
World leader in the supply of biogas purification technologies with an installed capacity of 160,000 cubic meters per hour, Air Liquide has developed technologies and expertise that span the entire biomethane value chain: purification of biogas into biomethane, injection into the natural gas network, liquefaction, distribution for clean transportation fleets.
