Versalis and BTS Biogas announce new technology for biomethane production

By Mary Page Bailey |

Versalis S.p.A. (San Donato Milanese), Eni’s chemical company, and BTS Biogas, an Italian company in the building and managing sector of biogas plants, have agreed to develop and commercialize an innovative technology for the production of biogas and biomethane from residual lignocellulosic biomass. 

This technology will integrate Versalis’ proprietary technology for the thermomechanical processing of biomass with BTS Biogas’ technology for the fermentation production of biogas and biomethane.

BTS Biogas has expertise in the production of biogas and biomethane from various biomass sources and the research and development infrastructure to evaluate their processing capacity and yields on an experimental basis. Versalis, as part of Eni’s broader decarbonization strategy, has launched a transformation plan that aims to diversify its activities and products, and increase its contribution to technological development for increasingly sustainable industrial solutions.

The partnership will enable the production of biogas and advanced biomethane with high yields from residual lignocellulosic biomass, thereby contributing to the large-scale development of advanced biomethane production with reduced greenhouse gas emissions and no agronomic impact.
