This biomethane installation is realised for ‘Energy Conversion Facility’ IOK Afvalbeheer, a waste management organisation for several municipalities in the north of Belgium. This is a double first for Bright Biomethane: the first project in Belgium and the first biomethane plant of the country. The biomethane system uses membrane technology to upgrade the biogas to 91 Nm3 biomethane per hour, equivalent to the annual natural gas consumption of 350 households. The biogas is produced from the anaerobic digestion of garden, fruit and vegetable waste (GFV) from more than half million residents of the Kempen area.
East to expand
The Bright Biomethane system is an easily expandable system, ensuring that enough biomethane is produced in the future to provide gas for around 1,000 families. Instead of 91 Nm3 low-calorific biomethane (L-gas), 242 Nm3 high-calorific biomethane (H-gas) per hour will be produced in the near future.
