The core competence of the Green Gas tandem is R&D, optimization and industrial application of the production of green gas as a backbone for future energy systems. At the Technology Center for Energy (TCE), microbiological process technologies are developed that can be transferred to technical applications in a pilot plant operated by MicroPyros BioEnerTec at a wastewater treatment plant.
The key idea is to use different raw gas sources from anaerobic digestion as well as from thermochemical conversion of biowaste and/or organic residues together with H2 from electrolysers. These electrolysers are powered by electricity from renewable energy technologies such as wind or photovoltaics. The produced green gas - H2 or CH4 (RNG) - can be stored, distributed and used for mobility, heat or power production on demand.
H2 - hydrogen
CH4 - methan
RNG - Reneweble Natural Gas
