Degrémont wins the "process technology" wex awards 2015 for its first membrane unit of biomethane fuel production

For this Wex Awards 2015 edition, Degrémont wins the award “Process Technology” for the first membrane unit of biomethane fuel production from biogas from sludge digestion.



In June 2014, a demonstration unit was installed at the Arvéa (La Roche-sur-Foron, France) wastewater treatment plant operated by Degrémont for the Le Pays Rochois joint municipal authorities in Haute-Savoie, France.


Biomethane obtained after treatment has a composition very close to natural gas while having a renewable origin. It can then be injected into natural gas distribution or used by natural gas vehicles.


Last year, Degrémont was awarded in the "Infrastructure" category for the Riyadh project, which consists in modularized osmosis plants to produce drinking water from brackish groundwater.
