Biogas and biomethane: turning our waste into energy

Lighting, heating, transport... thanks to our waste? It’s possible! Obtained via the fermentation of organic matter, biogas can be used to produce electricity, heat and even fertilizer. Purified biogas, known as biomethane, which has equivalent characteristics to those of natural gas, can be used in natural gas networks or as

Renewable energies

The energy transition and tackling climate change depend on the development of new renewable resources. IFPEN proposes processes for the production of fuels, bases for the chemicals sector and gas from biomass. IFPEN also uses its expertise acquired in the field of oil and gas to offer solutions for the

Biogas

Biogas OVERVIEW AND CHALLENGES Biogas refers to all gases produced via the biological or chemical conversion of biomass/biowaste. Once the gas has been purified to meet regulatory requirements, biomethane can be injected into the natural gas networks or used as a fuel. There are two principal methods of producing biogas
