Versalis and BTS Biogas will develop and market an innovative technology for the production of biogas and biomethane from residual lignocellulosic biomass.
BTS Biogas has over 25 years of experience in anaerobic digestion and is involved in the development, engineering, construction, and maintenance of more than 250 facilities globally. Versalis, Eni’s chemical subsidiary, is one of Italy’s largest chemical companies.
The new technology will be based on the integration of Versalis’ proprietary technology for the thermo-mechanical treatment of biomass, with BTS Biogas’ technology for the fermentation production of biogas and biomethane.
The main advantage of the collaboration is to allow, thanks to the new technology, the production of biogas and advanced biomethane with high yields from residual lignocellulosic biomass, contributing to the large-scale development of advanced biomethane production.
