Advanced biogas plant

The highly advanced biogas plant will be built in Huai’an, China and will produce biogas from rice straw. The produced biogas will be upgraded to biomethane and is compressed to CNG as renewable replacement for natural gas. “Anaerobic digestion and converting biogas to fuel is an important development for the future of China”, Yunfeng Bai stated. The aim is for the first gas to be produced before the end of the year.
