Composition du biogaz issu de la méthanisation et des émissions de moteurs de valorisation

Abstract : The biogas produced by anaerobic digestion of organic substances is a renewable energy source. Its production contributes to a reduction in the volume of organic waste and contributes to organic matter recycling. The biogas produced can be used to provide electricity or heat, or be purified to be injected into a distribution network of natural gas. INERIS studied the composition of different types of biogas since the early 2000s. Bibliographical studies were complemented by measurement campaigns at different sites, in order to study the quality of the biogas and the emissions of gas engines used for producing electricity and heat. Beside the major compounds (methane, CO2), over 250 compounds have been identified and quantified. These compounds represent less than 5% of the biogas before purification. The studies on composition of biogas and engine emissions, as well as the extended knowledge of many biogas plants of all sizes were used by INERIS since 2009 to contribute to the evolution of regulations relating to anaerobic digestion plants.
