Global Biomethane Market: Overview

Biomethane can be produced either by anaerobic digestion or by gasification of organic matter. Organic matter fed into the biomethane plant is transformed by anaerobic process into biomethane i.e. a compound of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide. As of 2016, Biomethane production from biogas was a single largest source, globally. Biogas is upgraded by various gas treatment processes to produce biomethane. During this upgrading process, contaminants are either absorbed or scrubbed from the gas to obtain more methane per unit volume of the residual gas.

Gasification converts organic matter into syngas, which is then processed to produce methane. Methane as a whole is about 20 times more potent GHG (Greenhouse Gas) than CO2 if released in atmosphere. When used in power generation, it generates heat and emits carbon dioxide and some other gases. Despite all this shortcomings, biomethane produced from organic matter eliminates the release of a great deal of methane and other harmful gases into the atmosphere. The production of biomethane eliminates exposure of decaying organic matter to the air. This avoids methane and other harmful gases from fleeing into the atmosphere.
