Bright Biomethane’s biogas upgrading plant in Murrow, Cambridgeshire, UK, is now operational.

The plant delivers biomethane directly to the UK’s high-pressure National Transmission System (NTS) gas pipeline. According to the company, the UK’s gas grid is becoming “greener and greener”, thanks to its upgrading systems.

The company turn-key supplied the biogas upgrading system, which turns biogas into a methane-high renewable gas, suitable for the existing gas grid. The PurePac Grand system comes with 6” membranes for the separation of methane from the carbon dioxide into two purified streams. These membranes allow higher upgrading flow of biomethane than the regular 4” membranes, while maintaining the compact size of the system.

The complete compact biogas upgrading system includes two housing units and two skids, taking up “little space” at the site, according to the firm.

Producing 1,067 normal metre cubed (Nm3) of biomethane per hour and 9.3 million Nm3 biomethane per year, the installation supplies around 6,200 UK homes with biomethane-derived energy and heat all-year-round.
