Hydrothermal gasification - the next generation biogas technology

Hydromethan AG is a spin-off originating from Paul Scherrer Institute, whereat KASAG LANGANU AG is involved.

Objective of the company Hydromethan AG is the commercialization of a patented process of catalytic high pressure gasification from organic wet residues. With this technology also not fermentable organic portions become complete gassed. Beside methane, nitrogen in form of a concentrated liquid ammonium salt is produced (practically no nitrogen loss). The process efficiency biomass to methane lies within the range of 60 - 70 %.
