Since the beginning of 2018, Air Liquide has commissioned three new biomethane production units, in the United States, in France, and in the United Kingdom. With these units, the company has doubled its biomethane production capacity, which now stands at 60 MW, the equivalent of 500 GWh for a full year of production

Paris/France — Over the course of the last four years, the Group has decided around $ 123 million in investments in biomethane production. Today, the Group operates ten production units around the world, designed to purify biogas in order to transform it into biomethane and inject it into the natural gas network.

The three new biomethane production units commissioned by Air Liquide are located in the United States (Walnut, Mississippi), in France (Cestas, near Bordeaux), and in the United Kingdom (Northwick, near Birmingham).

The new biomethane production unit in the United States is located in the Northeast Mississippi Landfill (NEML) site. This is the first large-scale unit built by the company in the United States. It purifies the biogas that results from household waste treatment sites and transforms it into biomethane.

In Europe, the units purify the biogas from farm waste and transform it into biomethane. Part of this biomethane is used for trucks fueled by bio-NGV (Natural Gas for Vehicles), a clean non-fossil fuel with no fine particulates emissions.
