Biogas Liquefaction Technology Workshop

Samsø has a LNG fueled ferry and we are planning to start producing biogas for local liquefaction in 2018/19. To liquefy biomethane in small scale is not standard technology, but the demand for this type of solution for biogas plants without access to gas grid is expected to increase in the future.

The purpose of the workshop is to reduce technological uncertainties for potential investors. When investors are convinced, we expect to tender a liquefaction plant in 2018. We plan this open process to share as much info as possible for an interested audience:

  • Gather technology providers and decision makers to discuss technological aspects and scaling issues of upgrading and liquefaction of biogas into Liquid Biomethane
  • The case of Samsø Field-to ferry biogas concept should be the case for discussion with perspectives for scaling
  • To unveil technology challenges, investment and production costs, energy consumption, methane losses etc.

There will be a panel of relevant experts to ask questions after the presentations, as this needs specialized knowledge.

Expected guests: Biogas 2020 (www.biogas2020.se) and Go-LNG (www.golng.eu) partners – including their professional networks and decision makers.
