 Project objective

Context Biogas production level in the EU has grown considerably in the past ten years to over 16 Mtoe, with optimistic forecasts predicting that by 2030 Europe will produce over 40 Mtoe. Problem The production of biomethane from organic waste matter faces a series of practical problems which are holding back its growth: - Cannot treat all wastes. Straw waste represents a massive biogas potential, but less than 5% is currently used for Biogas production. - Foreign objects often enter into the system, causing damage and increasing maintenace costs - Have high energy costs - Require several treatment stages, which increase the CAPEX and OPEX. Solution – the DualMetha Plant We have developed and patented a simplified, biomethane production process that: • cuts down some of the waste pre-treatment stages, • allows for the methanation of all types of biomass including straw, • does not break when foreign objects are introduced • and has low OPEX (50% less in maintenance, wear, repairs, electricity costs). DualMetha represents the opportunity to turn unexploited organic waste into biogas. The aim of the phase 1 project is to improve our understanding of the EU market for Biogas, identifying regional market variations in terms of purchase decision makers, appropriate business models, pricing structure and identifying which are the most attractive markets for us to use as a beachhead. We estimate that, only considering crop residual waste (straw) that DualMetha plants could supply 80Mtoe. We aim to install 75 plants by 2025.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "DUALMETHA" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
