The Grolsch beer which has a characteristically green color turns even greener with its adoption of green technology. They are planning on the installation of a biogas upgrading system that will overtake the annual production of biomethane from biogas. They are looking forward to cooperation within the region for a greener beer brewing network.
Biogas to Biomethane
Grolsch aims to have more than two-thirds of its heat demands met by sustainable energy from waste management. It will be managed by a company known as Twence and delivered through an underground pipeline. With the new heat supply, Grolsch will be able to spare their biogas instead of using virtually all of their biogas on direct heating needs. This will the upgrade of biogas to biomethane through their newly built biogas upgrader. The arrival of a new heat pipeline means that the company’s biogas can be put into another use. One thing that is for sure is that all the biogases will be utilized optimally.
Upgrading Grolsch’s biogas to biomethane is an important step in their energy transition. These efforts, in combination with their projects for heat sustainability, will bring the company a few steps closer to a carbon-free brewery processing plant.
There is a regional collaboration in which Grolsch delivers biogas to HoSt while HoSt provides the technology required for energy production. Such collaborations are becoming common, and this has seen an increase in the production of biomethane. It is a great measure that is playing a key role in the production of clean energy and waste management.
It is important to note that biomethane is very sustainable and can help in the creation of sustainable buildings and industries. This is one of the reasons why the government is eager to subsidize biomethane production.
The production of biomethane from biogas is achieved using a technology that is referred to as membrane technology. The membranes separate the methane from the CO2 and a variety of other components in a few efficient steps.
Biomethane is then formed by bringing the methane content that is produced to the desired levels.
