Biomethane / RNG

Biomethane or renewable natural gas (RNG) is produced via biogas upgrading. It can also be used as a renewable fuel in gas engines. Clarke Energy can provide both biogas upgrading and biogas engine technologies.

Biomethane Production

Biomethane is a sustainable fuel that is produced by biogas upgraders which remove the CO2 from biogas. Biomethane is produced from biogas that is derived from organic matter such as human waste / sewage, food waste, distillery waste or agricultural materials. As the carbon in this material has been recently taken from the atmosphere and is part of the short-term carbon cycle biogas and biomethane are deemed to be renewable fuels.

Biogas is dried and cleaned to remove impurities and upgraded to pure biomethane.

Biomethane can also be used in peaking stations. As biomethane is a renewable fuel it can be used to balance intermittent renewable electricity to provide a fully renewable power supply.
