Conversion of renewable energy into methane, fuels and chemicals
Renewable energy sources such as photovoltaics and wind power increasingly generate considerable surpluses of electrical energy which may exceed the capacity of the power grid.
„We increase the degree of efficiency of your energy generating processes.“
A surplus of electrical energy can be used for electrolysis of water to produce hydrogen. The conversion of hydrogen with carbon dioxide into methane is a promising alternative to the chemical storage of excess renewable energy. Carbon dioxide is a by-product in many industrial processes and normally has to be released into the atmosphere. To convert this greenhouse gas into methane provides a smart way to defuse its impact on the environment.
