Biomethane is a renewable gas based on biogenic materials. It is almost carbon-neutral, stabilizes natural cycles and creates added value and regional jobs. However, not all types of biomethane are the same. Different areas of application emerge depending on the raw materials involved. The green gas can be made from waste products, manure and residual materials just as well as from renewable raw materials.
As a source of energy, biomethane can generate renewable electricity and heat, used as a fuel or as biogas for private households. In terms of its components, it is identical to natural gas – biomethane can substitute natural gas 1:1. Be sure to exploit the benefits biomethane has to offer.
Biomethane as biogas.

Looking to offer your customers environmentally friendly fuel?
We can provide you with the biomethane qualities and quantities you need. Whether as a gas blend, a biofuel for your CNG station or in the form of certificates – we will make sure you get the right product for your customers.
We are happy to advise you on the possible applications of the various types of biomethane, on potential remuneration under the German Renewable Energies Act (EEG), on the renewable federal and state heat legislation and on biofuel quota regulations.
Everybody is talking about the role of combined heat and power (CHP) and flexible gas plants in the energy transition. The German Renewable Energies Act (EEG) facilitates economically competitive renewable CHP based on biomethane.
Existing CHP plants based on natural gas can still be refitted to run on biomethane at attractive terms under the EEG 2014 and 2017 thanks to the legally guaranteed provision to safeguard existing installations. The EEG 2017 brings with it even more opportunities – new CHP plants stand a good chance of receiving a subsidy in the auctions. Existing biomethane CHP plants whose current funding period is about to expire can secure follow-on funding under the EEG 2017.
Speak to us! We will help you to switch from natural gas to biomethane at your CHP plant.
Offer your customers a climate-friendly and extremely efficient alternative to natural gas – at the same price. All natural gas vehicles can also run on biomethane without the need for any technical modifications. For gas stations, the renewable gas is produced exclusively from residual materials and manure; no energy crops are used.
Moreover, biomethane is supported as fuel in the biofuels quota regulations. Since 2018, gas stations have also played a role in helping to fulfil the CNG quota when switching fuels. We will help you market the quota to oil companies that have to meet quota obligations.
By producing biomethane, you can optimize the energy potential and thus commercial potential of a biogas plant. Profit from our know-how – we have already supported numerous biomethane feed-in projects and operate several plants ourselves. We are happy to advise you.
Do you already produce biomethane? You can count on Landwärme as your reliable partner. We will buy your biomethane from you in the long run and sustainably safeguard your project.
