A Singlitico, J Goggins, RFD Monaghan. Resource Assessment for bio-SNG production via a nationwide system of gasification and methanation in Ireland Green Generation has injected renewable gas (biomethane), produced from the decomposition of organic waste via anaerobic digestion, into the Irish gas grid at Cush, Co. Kildare. This is the first time that renewable gas has been injected into the Irish gas grid, taking advantage of an opportunity to help decarbonise energy in Ireland
Naturgy Ireland, which is supplying the biomethane to companies including Diageo and Tesco Ireland, said that the introduction of biomethane into the Irish gas network represents an unprecedented opportunity for businesses in Ireland. Naturgy Ireland has seen a huge growth in demand from businesses looking to transition away from fossil fuels In 2018, Gas Networks Ireland will introduce renewable gas onto the Irish gas network for the first time writes Pádraic Ó hUiginn.Renewable gas, also known as biogas or greengas, will be introduced into the Irish market as a means of further reducing emissions. As natural gas and biomethane are interchangeable, renewable gas can be used in the same way and in the same appliances as natural gas
Firstly, grass biomethane can be produced in Ireland without the need for land use change, whereas palm oil biodiesel or sugarcane ethanol must be imported from countries such as Thailand or Brazil, where there is concern over deforestation, carbon emissions and ecological damage resulting from the conversion of land for energy crop production . This is the second biomethane production site to be commissioned in the Republic of Ireland; the other is located in Co. Donegal
The Gas Networks Ireland development will accommodate the injection of 590 GWH of renewable biomethane into the national gas network. This equates to the gas demand of 56,000 homes. The development, which includes the construction of 16 truck bays, a network entry facility unit, a compressed natural gas refuelling area and an odorant injection. Biomethane. Ireland's biogas industry will centre on upgrading biogas to biomethane for injection into the national gas grid. Before injection into the grid, biogas has to undergo further upgrading to remove CO2 and other trace gases. This process creates biomethane, with a methane content of around 99% Biomethane will in coming years be generated at hundreds of sites around the country through the use of anaerobic digesters (ADs) and injected into the national gas grid. Ireland is uniquely well. Biomethane or renewable natural gas (RNG) is produced via biogas upgrading. It can also be used as a renewable fuel in gas engines. Clarke Energy can provide both biogas upgrading and biogas engine technologies.. Biomethane Production. Biomethane is a sustainable fuel that is produced by biogas upgraders which remove the CO 2 from biogas. Biomethane is produced from biogas that is derived from. The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat will contribute to meeting Ireland's 2020 renewable energy and emission reduction targets. It will focus on heat users in the Non Emissions Trading (non-ETS) sector. This includes commercial, industrial, agricultural, district heating, public sector and other non-domestic heat users
Biomethane represents about 0.1% of natural gas demand today; however, an increasing number of government policies are supporting its injection into natural gas grids and for decarbonising transport. For example, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom have all introduced support for biomethane in transport Biomethane is an indigenously produced gaseous sustainable transport fuel that uses organic feedstock. Allowing for a realistic collection of organic residues and grass silage from 2.5% of pasture land would allow Ireland to generate 17% renewable energy supply in transport (RES-T) and surpass its 10% target for renewable transport energy by 2020
In contrast, more than 70 farms in the UK have jumped on the biomethane bandwagon in the last 24 months. But both Britain and Ireland are way behind other northern European countries in the biogas. Mapping the state of play of biomethane in Europe The EBA has participated in a research on the state of play of the biomethane market in Europe.
