HAM working on Italian bio-LNG facility

Spain’s HAM Group and its units are developing a bio-LNG plant in Faenza, Italy. The new facility will produce bio-LNG fuel for vehicles in Italy.

The facility would have an annual capacity of 9 million kilos, equivalent to 140 GWh per year, making it one the largest vehicular biomethane plants in Europe, HAM said in a statement.

Moreover, the facility would get biogas generated by two digesters owned by Caviro Spa, an Italian wine cooperative, where they recover by-products derived from the wine and agri-food chain, HAM said.

FNX Liquid Natural Gas, a unit of HAM, is in charge of designing and manufacturing the equipment necessary to purify the biogas, up to CO2 contents below 50 ppm, which makes it then suitable for liquefying.

Furthermore, FNX will also build the liquefaction train that will liquefy the biogas for onward distribution to service stations, the firm said.

According to HAM, the entire installation would get electricity produced from renewables.

In addition, the new vehicular biomethane plant would allow a “reduction of more than 600,000 km / year in road traffic of the LNG tanks with which the HAM Group currently supplies northern Italy, from the port terminals, thus reducing road traffic in general and CO2 emissions,” it said.

To remind, HAM also recently announced it had developed what it says is the first biomethane for vehicles project in Spain.

HAM now has more than 80 LNG and CNG service stations spread across Spain but also on the main European land transport routes.
