Carrefour is developing a pilot project in the Lille region (France) to test lorries running on biomethane fuel produced from recycling biowaste from its stores. The  project will be implemented in partnership with GNVERT (the sustainable mobility operator for the GDF SUEZ Group), the carrier Perrenot and the truck manufacturer IVECO. Feedstock used for biomethane…

In Belgium, a recent amendment to the Technical Regulations Distribution Gas and Electricity by VREG, the Flemish Energy Market Regulator, introduced rules for the injection of biomethane into the gas grids. Although no injection points currently exist in Flanders, the Regulation allows for the possibility to inject biomethane into middle pressure grids of categories B…

  Biofuels are a good alternative to fossil fuels for transport in terms of reduced carbon dioxide emission. The European Union (EU) has recognised the positive impact biofuels can have in the transport sector and has set a mandatory target for renewable fuels of 10% for each member state by 2020. Biofuels will make a…

Production of renewable gas through the methanation of CO2: ProGeo relies on HYSYTECH for plant technology

ProGeo is a project funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 program, launched in 2016 and closed this year, which stems from two needs: storing energy surplus (from renewable energy sources and not) and decreasing carbon dioxide, a main responsible of global warming. The ProGeo partners have awarded HYSYTECH the design and construction…

From municipal biowaste to soluble bioorganic substances – LIFECAB Project

LIFECAB is a R&D project, co-funded by the EU LIFE Program (LIFE16 ENV/IT/000179), which aims to demonstrate a new process to treat municipal biowaste (MBW) and produce soluble bioorganic substances (SBO). These substances will be used as additives for anaerobic fermentation reactors, with reduced entrepreneurial risk, in three different EU countries (Italy, Greece, Cyprus), to…

Regen Europe is a new exhibition dedicated to capturing energy and by-products from biomass and waste resource streams. The calorific content of numerous resources such as residual agricultural wastes, msw, srf, dry sludge etc can be converted into energy via a range of technologies including anaerobic digestion, torrefaction, pyrolysis, pyrogasification, plasma processes etc. The resulting energy forms include…

Biogaz Europe is the leading international exhibition for green, renewable gas – ie biogas, biomethane (upgrading, methanation) and biognv – which is produced  from organic waste streams. The exhibition brings together the entire sector covering the feedstock supply chain and its pretreatment, the entire process of methanisation and digestate management to energy recovery, including co/tri-generation, upgrading and methanation to biomethane and biognv fuels. A broad…

Incover: From Wastewater to Valuable Bio-Products

Considering the current global pressures on available water resources and the high costs of the operation and maintenance (O&M) of wastewater treatment, the INCOVER project (Innovative Eco-Technologies for Resource Recovery from Wastewater) has been designed to move wastewater treatment from being primarily a sanitation technology to a resource recovery industry. The project is developing innovative…
