Biogas Upgrading to Renewable Natural Gas (RNG)

DMT Clear Gas Solutions offers the Carborex®MS, high-selective membrane separation technology for biogas upgrading. The modular system upgrades biogas into RNG (also known as biomethane), which can be either injected into the natural gas pipeline or compressed into vehicle fuel. Historically, DMT’s Carborex®MS in Poundbury was the first commercial biogas upgrading system in the UK, as well as the first RNG site in Europe. Now, we are one of the largest producers of biogas upgrading facilities with more than 50 operational sites worldwide. 

Is renewable natural gas clean?

Renewable natural gas (RNG), also known as biomethane, creates a local resource of renewable energy. Benefits include:

Environmental Benefits: reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce pathogen levels, reduce nutrient runoff, increase crop yield, reduce odor

Economic Benefits: creates jobs both temporary and permanent, turns cost items into revenue-streams, improves rural infrastructure, diversifies rural income streams, and can operate in conjunction with composting operations

Energy Benefits: net-energy producing process, multiple end-use applications (ie heat only, electric only, CHP, pipeline injection, transportation fuel), baseload/dispatchable energy source, distributed generation, direct replacement of non-renewable fossil fuels

Waste Treatment Benefits: natural waste treatment process, smaller physical footprint vs composting, reduces volume of transport/land application, complete biogas capture, nutrient recovery and recycling
