What is Bio LNG

What is Bio LNG

Bio LNG – 100 % biofuel

Bio LNG is 100 % renewable biofuel, that is cleaner than other fossil fuels and biofuels, with significant carbon reductions.

Bio LNG or LBM?

Bio LNG is sometimes called liquefied biomethane (LBM). These are two different names for the same product.

Is Bio LNG real biofuel?

Bio LNG is produced from renewable resource - biogas, by anaerobic digestion, where organic waste is broken down by bacteria in absence of oxygen. Biogas is derived from animal manure and sewage sludge or green waste. Therefore, it is classified as a biofuel.

Bio LNG vs LNG

Bio LNG is a highly sustainable version of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with an almost identical composition. LNG is composed of about 95% methane, whereas Bio LNG are composed of about 99,8% methane.

Advantages of Bio LNG

Advantages of Bio LNG

Bio LNG production is one way to effectively address clean energy production, environmental protection, and waste management. Bio LNG will help governments meet climate action targets to reduce CO2

It is ideal for manufacturing and industrial businesses with energy-intensive operations. Using Bio LNG is also one of the key steps for the decarbonization of the transportation sector.

Bio LNG has a much lower carbon footprint than other fossil fuels or biofuels. In comparison to diesel, it has less CO2 emissions by more than 80%. And there are other significant advantages of using Bio LNG, including less engine sound, less NOx, and major less particulate matter emissions.

Therefore, Bio-LNG helps businesses meet carbon and pollutant reduction targets.

How does it work

How does it work

This modular system with biogas upgrading and cooling cycles necessary for liquefaction is based on MEGA's long-term research in the field of membrane gas separation and close cooperation with its subcontractors.

Biogas contains 30 – 45% CO2, H2S and other critical compounds that need to be removed and upgraded to high-quality biomethane before it can be liquefied to Bio LNG at -162 degrees Celsius. There are two main steps:

Biogas upgrading

Step one is to rid the feed gas of contaminants. MEGA solely utilizes own membrane technology to remove carbon dioxide and any water. According to customer needs the methane recovery is 94 – 99,7 %.

Liquefaction

The second step is the liquefaction. Key to this step is the integration of the cryogenerator into a complete turnkey technology for the final customer.

Lab & pilot testing

Laboratory and pilot testing

We pay attention to every project and offer complex services – gas sample testing, analysis in our laboratories, and technology modification by our specialists. Our pilot unit RALEX® BU 12-6 C can be installed in your plant for a trial period.
