Neuman & Esser to sponsor virtual meet on decarbonization
By Keefe Borden05 May 2021
Neuman & Esser Group will hold two virtual symposia designed to explore the role of methane, its conversion into hydrogen and the decarbonization of the energy supply. The first of those two events will take place May 27.
Methane from biogas was initially considered a simple product of waste management but is now considered a potential renewable energy resource. Germany receives about a fourth of its renewable energy with electricity from biogas plants, making it the largest in Europe.
Biomethane is a renewable gas obtained from waste from the food industry, kitchens, agriculture, household or sewage treatment plant sludge. It can be injected into the natural gas grid and used as traditionally-sourced methane. The production of green hydrogen from biogas also plays an important role in the transition of CO2-free energy systems. Where gas grids are not available, liquefaction offers the possibility of transporting the energy in a different way.
According to various scenarios outlined by the European Commission on the long-term strategic energy vision until 2050, the demand for gas in Europe will decrease, Despite that decrease, the role of renewable CO2-free gases will increase in all scenarios. Experts from TGE Gas Engineering, ARCANUM Energy Systems and NEA will explain how biogas utilization will contribute to the energy solution.
Registration is here. The two-hour symposium starts on 27 May at 9.00 am CET (2 am CST) and will be repeated at 5.00 pm CST (10 am CST).
A second symposium will be held Nov. 25, with more topics on CO2-free energy solutions: Hydrogen refuelling stations, dry-running reciprocating compressor technology, hydrogen value chain and power-to-liquid.
Neuman & Esser Group manufactures piston and diaphragm compressors and compressor systems to process natural gas and all technical gases. NEA Group has expanded its portfolio to include alternative concepts that use hydrogen and biomethane to drive the transition to energy systems used in the future.
