Cryo Pur, specialising in the design and manufacturing of systems for cryogenic biogas upgrading and biomethane liquefaction, plans on using the UK AD and BIOGAS tradeshow taking place in July 2016 in Birmingham, to officially break into the British biogas industry.

By launching into the UK market, the corporation expects to begin commercialising its first compact liquid methane production unit, which is designed to work off organic waste.

The French company produces bio-LNG using an energy-efficient process to minimise polluting emissions. It recovers the carbon dioxide (CO2) by-product in its liquid form and maintains a high level of purity that can be reused industrially.

Cryo Pur technology offers concrete solutions to the issues surrounding biogas, employing cutting-edge processes to push the limits of energy efficiency

Cryo Pur has designed a unique solution to use biogas to produce liquid biomethane (bio-LNG) and bioCO2, which is generated by agricultural, industrial, sewage and household wastes.

The Cryo Pur system separates CO2 at a high-purity grade, and separates nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2) during the biomethane liquefaction. The end product creates a zero-impact fuel for greenhouse gas emissions, with a significant reduction in NOx emissions.

The company aims to bring this unique solution to the UK biogas sector and to position itself as a strategic player, by offering bio-LNG at a competitive cost and by working with agricultural and industrial waste collectors, along with engineering companies.

Breakthrough technology

Denis Clodic, President and Founder of Cryo Pur, explained, “Protected by seven worldwide patents, Cryo Pur technology offers concrete solutions to the issues surrounding biogas, employing cutting-edge processes to push the limits of energy efficiency. This breakthrough technology produces biofuel using organic waste.”

A European Biogas Association (EBA) report from the end of 2015 stated that the UK is among the top three leaders in the production of biogas, along with Germany and Sweden, in terms of plants and infrastructures.

Due to the COP21 summit in December 2015, Europe’s aim is to source 20% of the EU’s energy from renewable energy before 2020.
