ENGIE new Silver Sponsor

As ENGIE rises to overcome the challenges of the transition to clean energy and a low carbon economy, ENGIE draws on three areas of expertise: electricity, natural gas, and energy services. The Group is developing innovative, effective solutions for all of its customers, whether households or professionals, towns or regions, businesses or industry, in the following key sectors: renewable energies, energy efficiency, natural gas, LNG, and the digital technology of the future.

Dr. Olivier Guerrini, Industrial Director, ENGIE will give a presentation in the opening session related to biogas and biomethane in France.

YARA France a new exhibitor

Yara France is a supplier of additives in order to increases the efficiency of the biogas production. The bacteria are given higher accessibility to the carbon sources in the substrate, thus accelerating and optimizing the conversion of substrates into biogas. The result is an increased methane concentration in the biogas, and therefore a higher energy content.

 

TNO new Silver Sponsor and Exhibitor

TNO connects people and knowledge to create innovations that boost the sustainable competitive strength of industry and well-being of society. This is the mission of TNO and it is what drives the 2,600 professionals at TNO, in the work every day.

Dr. Marco Linders, TNO, will give a presentation entitled “A novel electrochemical process for H2S removal from biogas”

Baltic Energy Innovation Centre (BEIC) new gold sponsor

The Baltic Energy Innovation Centre (BEIC) is a non-profit making association providing a platform for international collaboration with activities focused on innovative energy technology in general, and biogas and biomethane related development in particular.

BEIC offers a wide range of services within the field of innovative energy technology. Through its founding members BEIC has access to 11 laboratories with top modern equipment and approx. 280 co-workers dedicated to the development of innovative energy technology.

90 TWh/year biomethane by 2030 in France and up to 1,000,000 NGVs by 2035

TIGF, GRDF, GRTgaz and SPEGNN released a forecast on the 21st of November showing that biomethane in France could reach 90 TWh/year in 2030. The number of NGVs in the transportation sector is expected to increase from the current 15,000 to 300,000 in 2035, in the most conservative scenario. The most optimistic scenario indicates 1,000,000 NGVs by 2035. The forecast emphasize the importance of upgraded biogas, bioSNG and renewable methane through Power-to-gas in the French market.

France the new hotspot for biomethane

France is nr 3 in Europe when it comes to nr of biogas plants. The biogas production has almost doubled from 2010 to 2015 and the nr of biomethane plants increased almost an order of magnitude from 2011 to 2016. However, the most interesting is the ambitious targets for 2023 and 2030, and the strong associated incentives.

We foresee a strong and rapid development of the French biomethane market in the years to come and are happy to provide REGATEC 2018 as a vibrant meeting point for the biogas, gasification and Power-to-gas community.

Looking forward to see you in Toulouse, 3-4 May 2018.

The REGATEC team
