Tours, France

HoSt has developed an installation for upgrading biogas to a methane-rich product gas which can be injected into the gas grid. The installation is placed at a project in Tours, France and has a capacity of 190 Nm³/h biogas and produces 107 Nm³/h biomethane.

In this project the upgrading installation is connected to the existing digesters and has a very high efficiency regarding the separation of methane and carbon dioxide. The unit is therefore able to produce methane with a concentration over 97%, equal to the energy-rich gas type H.

The upgraded biogas is injected in the national gas grid. The complete upgrading unit including compressor, control, membranes, odorisation, biogas analysis and a vacuum pump is all integrated in a single 40 ft. container.

Start construction: April 2016
Start-up / commissioning: November 2016
Capacity: 190 Nm³/h biogas
107 Nm³/h biomethane
Methane concentration raw biogas: 60%
Methane concentration product gas: > 97%
Efficiency: > 99%
Characteristics: • Biogas upgrading installation placement in 40 ft container
• Produces 97% biomethane (gas type H)
• Contains a vacuum pump
