What is BioLNG

What is BioLNG

BioLNG - 100% biofuel

BioLNG is 100 % renewable biofuel, that is cleaner than other fossil fuels and biofuels, and significantly reduces carbon emissions.

BioLNG or LBM?

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

Is BioLNG real biofuel?

BioLNG is produced from a 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.

BioLNG vs LNG

BioLNG is a highly sustainable version of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with almost identical composition. LNG is composed of about 95% methane, whereas BioLNG consists of approximately 99.8% methane.

Advantages of BioLNG

Advantages of BioLNG

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

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

BioLNG has a much lower carbon footprint than other fossil fuels or biofuels. Compared to diesel, it has more than 80% lower CO2 emissions. And there are other significant advantages of using BioLNG, including quieter engine operation, less NOx, and significantly fewer particulate matter emissions.

Therefore, BioLNG helps businesses meet carbon and pollutant reduction targets.

How does it work

How does it work

Thanks to long-term research in the field of membrane gas separation and close cooperation with our suppliers, we have developed a modular system for upgrading biogas and its cooling required for liquefaction.

Biogas contains 30 – 50% CO2, H2S, and other critical compounds that need to be removed and upgraded to high-quality biomethane before it can be liquefied to BioLNG at -162 ℃. There are two main steps:

Biogas upgrading

The first step is to rid the inlet gas of impurities. MEGA supplies membrane technology to remove carbon dioxide and any water, tailored to each customer. Depending on the customer's needs, methane recovery is up to 99.5%.

Liquefaction

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

Lab & pilot testing

Laboratory testing

We pay attention to every project and offer complex services – gas sample testing, analysis in our laboratories, and technology modification by our specialists.
