Ensuring Compliance and Cost Savings in Nordic Biogas Production Plants

Challenge

 

Biogas plants face increasingly stringent EU and national regulations regarding methane slip levels, which refer to the unintentional release of methane during biogas production. Since methane is a very strong greenhouse gas (80 times stronger than carbon dioxide), compliance with these regulations is crucial for environmental protection, process control, and economic viability. The low methane concentration relevant for methane slip is challenging to analyze with traditional methods, especially in the harsh Nordic climate.
