Bright Biomethane biogas upgrading installation in SwedenBright Biomethane, a Dutch company involved with biogas upgrading activities, has opened its first North American office in response to growing business and increasing demand for renewable natural gas (RNG) solutions in North America. RNG can be used as natural gas substitute for compression to CNG or liquefaction to LNG as fuel for natural gas vehicles (NGV), or for direct grid injection.

Bright Biomethane North America is working on the first five projects, which are being realized in the Northeast of the United States.

Bright Biomethane North America will lay the basis for future growth in this market together with strategic partner Martin Energy Group. It will supply biogas upgrading systems with membrane separation technology for the refining of biogas from biomass to biomethane. Bright Biomethane’s virtual pipeline solutions allow to transport the CNG to any part of North America.

“This new office reflects our dedication to fuel our future growth, but also to fuel the future growth of renewable natural gas in North America with our proven biogas upgrading system. Our virtual pipeline solutions ensure that the renewable gas is readily available for natural gas replacement anywhere”, says Sales Director Maarten Holtkamp.

By applying highly efficient membranes, Bright Biomethane says the separation of methane from biogas can reach an efficiency of more than 99.5% and render biomethane suitable for compression to CNG.

In 2018 NGVA Europe released a joint ‘roadmap to 2030’ document with EBA to unveil the role and contribution of natural and renewable gas for a sustainable and decarbonized transport system. In the summary notes is stated that when introducing RNG into the natural gas fuel supply for vehicles, “30% renewable gas will provide a GHG emissions reduction of more than 45% compared to conventional fuels on a Well to Wheel basis. When considering the potential in using 80% renewable gas mix, a complete carbon neutrality can be achieved.”
