Green gas to fight climate change: Electrochaea’s commercial 10-megawatt biomethanation plant engineering completed
Electrochaea has completed the engineering for the first standardized 10 MWe biomethanation plant designed for commercial operation. A 10 MWe plant can produce several million cubic meters of renewable synthetic methane per year that replaces any use of fossil natural gas. Electrochaea offers a proven, safe, and efficient solution to green the energy system while storing renewable energy in the form of renewable methane. With the completion of the standardized design for a 10 MWe plant, Electrochaea’s multipatented technology is ready for worldwide commercial development.
Alternative to natural gas and conventional fuelsThe climate-neutral, synthetic gas offers many advantages as a replacement for fossil natural gas. Unlike renewable hydrogen, renewable methane can be stored and distributed within the existing gas infrastructure without any additional expenditures. Synthetic methane produced in Electrochaea’s plants, using the power-to-gas process, can store renewable electricity for a later season preventing the curtailment and wasting of renewable resources. Just like natural gas, synthetic methane can be used for transportation, home heating and industrial processes. “Electrochaea’s standardized design can be used at any location with any source of CO2 and hydrogen to produce renewable synthetic methane. The many solutions our plants provide to fight climate change, make this an attractive technology for companies, utilities and municipalities to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and provide an additional source of renewable energy to their customers,” says Dr. Doris Hafenbradl, CTO and Managing Director at
