The solution for the sustainable future of agriculture comes from cooperation.

Ecospray signs a new deal for BIO-LNG production with the German Ruhe Agrar.

The definitive agreement for a pioneering partnership project dedicated to the creation of BIO-LNG was signed on July 15, at the end of a very beneficial meeting. Signatories of the agreement, Ecospray and the German company Ruhe Agrar, one of the most important agricultural company with locations in Lower Saxony, Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, recognized as a leader in the production of sustainable closed-cycle energy.

Ecospray will supply a pre-treatment and upgrading system – to convert biogas in biomethane – and a liquefaction system to produce BIO-LNG connected to a suitable cryogenic tank and pump for the trailers off-loading.
Thanks to the technology provided by Ecospray, it will now be possible to equip all agricultural biogas plants with special modules allowing the production of biofuel for road transport. The biogas obtained from the plants is treated and liquefied by this module and the BIO-LNG thus produced can be added to the LNG obtained from conventional natural gas, which has significantly lower emissions than diesel.

We are really going the extra mile, as with this plant we not only produce biomethane but BIO-LNG, which is ready to be used as fuel for heavy transport. LNG allows 99% reduction of PM10 (particulate matter) and 20-30% of CO2 emissions, and BIO-LNG is completely carbon neutral, in addition to using waste as an energy source instead of having to dispose of it. Biomethane and BIO-LNG are a double opportunity: transforming waste into BIO-LNG represents a valid resource for heavy transport and a true example of a circular economy which includes all stakeholders in the supply chain.

This deal not only provides Ecospray with the distribution of its technology over a very large and advanced territory for biogas production, but also contributes significantly to the achievement of the EU objective “Fit For 55”, requesting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030, a commitment that both companies strongly feel as part of their mission.

Since industry urgencies have changed, we all need to consider the long-term perspective. Not just regulations but environmental awareness and requests for sustainability provided with the latest technologies, are drivers towards the CO2 neutral path. Decarbonization is indubitably the most important priority, and a crucial opportunity too. With Ruhe Agrar, Ecospray has found the strongest partner in Germany and the German market is the most important in the world for the development of the BIO-LNG product.
