Air Liquide has reported the commissioning of 12 biogas purification units in the year in Europe. With these new units, Air Liquide triples its biogas purification capacity on the European continent. Overall, Air Liquide has designed and deployed worldwide 50 biogas purification units in order to transform biogas into biomethane and inject it into the natural gas networks.
The 12 new biogas purification units commissioned by Air Liquide are located in France, the United Kingdom, Hungary and Denmark. Five of these units represent a total investment of €12 million.
The purification and biogas valorisation is a very promising example of a circular economy, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and which could contribute to solutions for the zero emission transportation of tomorrow.
François Darchis, Senior-Vice President, member of the Air Liquide group’s Executive Committee supervising Innovation, commented: “These new biomethane production contracts illustrate the ability of Air Liquide to leverage its technologies to incubate new businesses. By positioning on the entire chain from biogas purification to distribution with bio-NGV stations, Air Liquide is contributing to meeting energy and environmental challenges.”
