Sustainable Biogas Purification System in Landfills and Municipal Solid Waste Treatment Plants

LIFE BIOGASNET aims at demonstrating a new cost-effective and environmental friendly technology for biogas desulphurisation based on biological processes, being able to obtain a high quality biogas and final valuable by-products.

The project focuses on the promotion of renewable energies production through the circular economy concept: reducing waste generation, reducing the carbon footprint of the desulphurisation process, and producing secondary raw materials such as elemental sulphur and ammonium sulphate.
