Power-to-gas coupling to biomethane production

A process for the production of substitute natural gas out of renewable electricity

Schematic representation of the power-to-gas coupling to biomethane production 

The power-to-gas coupling to biomethane production is an industrial process for the conversion of electricity into substitute natural gas (biomethane). It uses the excess of renewable and intermittent electricity production from sun and wind. The addition of hydrogen results in doubling the methane yields, with limited gas quality fluctuations.
