What is biogas and how is it made?
Biogas (green gas/biomethane) is produced from a range of organic materials (feedstocks) including maize, rye, food residues and landfill gas. Once the biogas has been produced, it is refined and can be injected into the gas transport network in much the same way as natural gas.
The anaerobic digestion process is started by allowing bacteria to break down waste products in an oxygen free environment. Biogas is created, refined and then injected into the gas grid by biogas producers. Biogas can be used as a substitute for natural gas as it has the same characteristics and specifications as fossil gas.
There are currently 650 operational AD facilities in the UK, which is a significant rise from one facility in 2013. This number, alongside the ambitions for net zero living by 2050, shows the UK’s ambition for biogas to begin replacing fossil fuels as the main source of energy.
Crown Gas & Power’s biogas product is not to be confused with carbon offsetting. Rather than compensating for high carbon emissions, biomethane reduces emissions.
Why biogas is good for your business
Virtually carbon neutral
Burning gas from fossil fuels introduces carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that has been locked away for millions of years, this then causes climate damage, whereas biomethane is produced solely from organic materials that absorbed carbon dioxide whilst they grew.
This means when biogas is burned, it only releases that same amount of carbon dioxide, therefore since it doesn’t add more CO₂ to the Earth’s atmosphere, it’s carbon neutral.
Supports British farmers & rural economy
Biogas opens a new opportunity for British farmers as biogas is a fresh alternative to the traditional farming methods, such as diary and meat – which currently accounts for 60% of farming greenhouse gas emissions.
The Green Gas Certification Scheme currently governs the process for all biogas. The certification scheme tracks all biogas from production through to consumption. Once biogas is purchased, a certificate can be viewed to find out information such as location and method of extraction of your biogas. Green gas certificates will be sent out within three weeks of coming live.
Reduces our reliance on fossil fuel gas
Changing our reliance on fossil fuels to virtually carbon neutral biogas can help the earth recover and stop us burning fossil fuels. Agricultural crops, food waste and animal waste are a continuously created and can be used to create biogas, thus reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.
How to purchase biogas for your business
Switching to biogas can help the fight against climate change. Whilst there is a growing demand for biogas, there is currently a limited volume of biogas available in the UK. Speak to our team today to discuss switching your business to biogas with one of our three offerings: a 25% or 50% biogas blend or our 100% biogas product.
