RP1.4-07 – Biomethane injection into the gas network: impact of impurities on the performance of end-use appliances

Executive Summary

The overall objective of this project is to enable biomethane injection into the gas network in a cost-effective manner. The focus is on the end-user equipment and providing appropriate constraints on the level of impurities such as siloxane, oxygen and nitrogen. This project investigates the impact of impurities on the end-users using state-of-the-art computational and experimental approaches.

Commencement / End Date 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2025
Outcomes / Impact

The obtained knowledge and developed correlations can be used to revise grid injection standards for biomethane. In addition, the outcome of this project enables the end-users to understand the impact of impurities on their devices and helps them develop appropriate process controls and/or maintenance schedules accordingly.
