Techno-economic modelling of biogas infrastructures: biogas transport in pipelines

Research output: Ph.D. ThesisPhD Research external, graduation external


Biogas is produced from biomass by means of digestion. Treated to so-called ‘green gas’, it can replace natural gas. Alternatively, biogas can be used to produce electrical power and heat in a combined heat power (CHP) installation. In 2014 global biogas production was only 1% of natural gas production. In the future, biogas is expected to play a role in specific applications, e.g. to provide flexibility in electricity supply
