Elogen announces that it has been selected by Storengy to supply a PEM electrolyser with a power of 1 MW as part of the construction of a methanation unit for the Communauté d’Agglomération Pau Béarn Pyrénées.
Elogen, a GTT group company, announces that its membrane electrolysis technology has been selected by Storengy as part of the project, developed by the Communauté d’Agglomération Pau Béarn Pyrénées, for the operation of the Lescar wastewater treatment plant, and the construction of methanization and methanation units.
Elogen will design and produce a PEM (proton exchange membrane) electrolyser with a power of 1 MW, and capable of peak operation at 1.3 MW. The Elogen electrolyser, which will be part of the methanation unit, will be delivered in the first half of 2023 to the Lescar wastewater treatment site.
The PEM electrolyser, designed by Elogen, will be used in the production of synthetic methane developed by Storengy in Pau Lescar by means of an innovative technological process of catalytic methanation. This process will make it possible to transform all the carbon dioxide emitted by the methanization unit present on the site, into synthetic methane, thanks to the use of the hydrogen produced by the electrolyser.
The project, developed by Pau Béarn Pyrénées, will make it possible to produce 10 energies and resources from the wastewater of Lescar, and is part of the objective to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040.
Christophe Renier, Director of Industrial Expertise and Energy Solutions at Storengy, says: “With ever more innovative solutions for the production of renewable and low-carbon gas, Storengy enables its customers to accelerate their energy transition. Thanks to the hydrogen produced by the Elogen electrolyser, our methanation process will transform all the CO2 resulting from the treatment of sludge from the sewage treatment company in Lescar into synthetic methane, which is 100% renewable. This will be a first in France. We are proud to be able to write this new story as part of our consortium with Suez and all of our partners, on behalf of the Communauté d’Agglomération Pau Béarn Pyrénées.”
