The BioCat project has now kicked off the construction phase at Avedøre Wastewater Treatment Plant, where a new commercial-scale power-to-gas facility will be constructed during 2015 and 2016. Space has been cleared and soil has been removed, which is the first step towards establishing the world’s largest power-to-gas facility based on biological methanation.
The on-site construction will proceed through October and November. Hereafter, the highly innovative equipment such as the methanation system and the advanced alkaline elektrolyser will be delivered to the site. The power-to-gas facility is expected to be operational by mid-April 2016, where the experimental operating phase will begin.
The objective of the BioCat project, which is funded by ForskEL, is to design, construct and test a power-to-gas facility at the wastewater treatment plant in Avedøre in order to demonstrate the technology’s capability to store energy from renewable energy sources and provide energy to the Danish energy system.
