Learning from biogas projects in Lille

 

Lille Metropole builds one new organic waste treatment plant where biogas will be produced. The station will increase yearly biogas production to 4 million Nm3. The plant will be in full operation in 2006. In this framework biogas experience was evaluated.

Lille Metropole has long experience of producing biogas from sewage sludge in a pilot plant. Within Trendsetter Lille builds a full scale biogas plant, producing biogas from organic waste. The biogas produced in the new plant will be used in buses in Lille. The plant will be in full operation in 2006.
   
Construction costs for the biogas plant were not part of the Trendsetter budget but some preparatory work and evaluations were:

  • an implementation study defining the specifications of the biogas production
  • an evaluation of the Lille biogas experience

The implementation of the complete value chain of biogas, from treatment of organic waste and sludge to biogas fuel distribution, allows to fuel already 100 buses with biogas. The dual compression station, fed both with biogas and natural gas, allows to cope with biogas production fluctuations and is instrumental in allowing the progressive convertion of the whole fleet to gas buses.

The cost of biogas is similar to the cost of natural gas, and
specifications are fully compatible. The biogas production
infrastructure is located next to the biogas bus depôt, facilitating
logistics. Buses fuelled with biogas reduce drastically the use of
fossile fuels, and its corresponding production, transportation and
distribution.
   
This measure was produced by Lille Metropole.
