France: Demo facility to be fuelled with sewage sludge

EBA Member Engie is set to establish a pilot project that would allow to produce liquefied biomehane for the first time in France.

Engie is developing a demonstration plant for turning biogas from sewage sludge into liquefied biomethane, often referred to as bio-LNG.

The facility in Valenton, to the south of Paris, is known as BioGNVAL and is part of “significant new growth opportunities” that the company sees in France for both transport and power applications.

Indeed, the production out of the sewage sludge brings new flexibility to the use of biomethane: in addition to injection into the natural gas grid, green mobility and combustion for network remote sites are promising opportunities.
