Reduction of Green House Gases

Biogas production is just one of various initiatives of the green transition. In many places and many countries, all organic material is assessed with respect to its energy potential before it is sent to incineration, composting or to be used as fertiliser on farm land. This all makes sense when the goal is to create green energy to replace the black energy based on fossil fuels.

In the climate debate, CO2 emission is the main topic of conversation because our excessive emission of greenhouse gases is blamed for the climate changes we are currently witnessing. These only appear to get worse and so it is good news that focus is now on the green transition and the utilisation of organic material for biogas production.

But there is another side to the story which is fortunately beginning to attract attention. It is one thing to replace black energy with green, but it is quite another to ensure that the green facilities do not unintentionally leak CO2 from works and pipelines. Just like water supply grids are subjected to regular controls to avoid leakage, water loss and to reduce the amount of energy spent, biogas facilities must also be inspected regularly to close all leaks.

Experts believe it possible to reduce the CO2 emission from biogas facilities to as little as a mere 1 %.

When it comes to the pipes that distribute biogas from one location to another, it is important to have the right products at hand as all leakage reduction is about fast and effective repairs.
