Biogas upgrading to biomethane by MEGA

What is biogas

What is biogas

Biogas is a valuable source of renewable energy that is produced by the decomposition of organic matter.

What is biogas used for

Biogas, after treatment, is used to power vehicles, and generate electricity or heat, whether in the form of BioLNG, BioCNG, grid injection, or biohydrogen.

We have a tailor-made solution for every biogas plant

We have a tailor-made solution for every biogas plant

Are you using a biogas plant only for electricity generation and heating and are you interested in its further potential? We have a solution for you - the biogas separation units for biomethane production. We provide complex services:

  • We will analyze the possibility of biogas production in relation to the maximum efficiency and economic return of the project tailored to your conditions.
  • We will carry out pilot testing at the beginning of each project.
  • Our team of specialists will help you to optimize the composition of the produced biogas for biomethane processing.
Advantages of gas membrane separation

Why biogas treatment by MEGA

MEGA biogas treatment system recovers over 99.9% of the biomethane present in raw biogas by separating CO2 and other gases from the biogas.

Rising fuel, electricity, and heat prices mean that biogas treatment can be a significant source of profit for your company.

It’s even possible to capture the CO2 from the biogas plant for industrial or food purposes, increasing revenue further.

MEGA provides full biogas upgrading tailored solutions to our customers along with integration to their sites.

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.

BioCNG pro města

BioCNG for cities, Municipal wastewater treatment plant Brno - Modřice

The first bus in the Czech Republic powered by biogas gained from wastewater

The pilot project "BioCNG for cities", carried out together with the Circular Economy Institute, Brno municipal water system, and MemBrain, uses gas generated by wastewater treatment as a fuel for public transport. The project was awarded by Smart City Innovation institute.

The BioCNG BU-12 unit was connected to sludge gas in the BVK municipal wastewater treatment plant Modřice. The produced biomethane was refuelled into the DP Brno bus. 36 fillings were made with a total consumption of 1660 kg. The BioCNG unit ran 1068 hours without a single unplanned outage.

The transition from agricultural biogas to sludge gas passed off without any problems. On the contrary, the methane concentration was higher in the sludge gas, and the undesirable oxygen and nitrogen content was very low – therefore the biomethane concentration in the product was high.

Případová studie úprava bioplynu na biometan Pustějov

ZEMSPOL STUDÉNKA a.s., Czech Republic

Continuous production of biomethane for the collective farming in Pustějov

MEGA has installed a biomethane separation unit - BioCNG in a biogas plant of ZEMSPOL group, which operates two biogas plants working on the principle of wet fermentation and two-stage anaerobic fermentation. After analysis and laboratory tests, ZEMSPOL willingly provided facilities for the installation of the BioCNG pilot unit for a biomethane production volume of 6,3 Nm3/h at a methane content of 60 % by volume in the biogas input.

Operation parameters were continuously monitored. The BioCNG production unit was in continuous operation mode from spring 2015 to spring 2018, with the methane concentration in the product gas being higher than 95 vol. %. The operation was terminated according to the contractual conditions in July 2018 after incident-free continuous operation.
