A focus for energy technology

Biomethane and Grid Injection- Online

Date From: 01 February 2018
Description: A webinar organised by IChemE's Clean Energy Special Interest Group. This webinar is based on a key strand of the technology involved in delivering bioenergy in the UK. The speaker, John Baldwin, will first outline technologies involved in cleaning biogas from anaerobic digestion plants based on organic matter and upgrading it to required standards for injection into the UK national grid. The webinar will also cover the current state and trends in the biomethane plants; challenges faced by the developers including regulatory and technical (gas cleaning, standards and grid injection interface), and present a case study.
Event Type: Webinar
Venue: Online, 09:00-10:00 GMT
