Energy | Synthetic natural gas
Consuming natural gas is not sustainable. UNIWASTEC produces synthetic natural gas from waste and this in a completely green way.
Synthetic natural gas made from waste
Natural gas is often cited as a climate-friendly alternative to coal. However, to achieve the climate goals, a large part of the fossil resources must remain underground.
UNIWASTEC produces synthetic natural gas by gasification and methanation.
With the aid of our proprietary and patented emission free thermolytic cracking process (TCP), we produce a synthesis gas from waste. Through methanation we transform the synthesis gas into synthetic natural gas (SNG). Our solution is environmentally friendly and thus presents a formidable alternative to fossil natural gas.
Waste as resource
Due to our highly sophisticated TCP-technology, we can produce high-quality synthesis gas from waste. This is brought up to the quality of natural gas through subsequent methanization. The energy required for methanization is obtained from the waste heat of the upstream waste gasification.
The standard power-to-methane process is inefficient because of different sub-steps. On the other hand, UNIWASTEC’s waste gasification process is highly energy-efficient, because we use the waste heat generated during TCP directly to methanize the synthesis gas. Additionally, our allothermal process does not need any external energy and is autarkic.
We are able to produce the products synthetic natural gas, green electricity, synthetic fuel and green hydrogen from the educts waste, used tires, sewage sludge, liquid manure, biomass, and wastewater.
