Biomethane connected to UK gas network for first time-National Grid

Thu, 13th Aug 2020 11:46

Aug 13 (Reuters) - Britain's National Grid said on
Thursday that biomethane has been connected to the transmission
system for the first time, as part of efforts to decarbonise the
gas network.

The renewable gas biomethane has been produced by Biocow
Ltd's Murrow anaerobic digestion plant in Cambridgeshire from
cattle manure and straw.

The pipeline will support flows of up to 15,000 cubic metres
of biomethane per hour, enough for the annual gas consumption of
10 average households each hour.

"Alongside hydrogen, biomethane will play a critical role in
the journey to Britain achieving net zero," said Ian Radley,
head of gas systems operation at National Grid.

Britain has a goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas
emissions by 2050 which will require a huge increase in
renewable energy and investment to increase the stability of its
energy networks.
