Another Hitachi Zosen Inova Biogas Upgrading Plant to Deliver Renewable Gas to the French Gas Grid

Zurich, Switzerland - Hitachi Zosen Inova BioMethan GmbH (HZI BioMethan) has been awarded the contract to build another biogas and biomethane production facility in France.

The plant, which will be custom-designed to the needs of the client, is the first in a series of eight projects to be delivered by HZI BioMethan over the next year with project developer Artaim Conseil.

The Herpy-l’Arlésienne facility, around 30 kilometers northwest of the city of Reims in northern France, is the first of eight projects to be delivered by 2020 in collaboration with Artaim Conseil, a French project developer based in Montpothier. HZI BioMethan has been appointed as the general contractor to deliver the EUR 3.42 million contract, which comprises a digester system with three tanks for producing biogas by wet fermentation, and a membrane unit for upgrading it to biomethane.

The client will use the facility to process renewable raw materials such as greens, energy crops and corn straw to generate up to 300 Nm³/h of natural gas, which from summer 2020 will be fed into the gas supply grid operated by GRTgaz.
