From location to production – ARCANUM is always at your side in an advisory capacity. Through precise site analysis, we help in all necessary areas of project development and consulting.
Since its foundation, ARCANUM has been one of the leading project developers in the field of renewable energies. With the development, operation, and own involvement in the “Biogas pools for Stadtwerke GmbH & Co. KG”, ARCANUM has many years of experience in turning an initial idea into a functioning and profitable plant. This solid foundation is a key to success.
ARCANUM offers the complete range of study- and consulting services in the field of renewable energies:
Through ongoing relationships with individual investors and financial partners, ARCANUM brings financing options to the implementation of projects. Whether debt-financed projects or equity financing, ARCANUM’s many years of experience also provide the right option for you.
We take care of the planning, approval, and implementation of projects to make biogas plants fit for the future and make a decisive contribution to the success of the energy transition.
The production of biogas is only the beginning, the processing into biomethane the consistent step towards sustainability and sector coupling. In combination with hydrogen is this the path towards an emission-free industrial society.
Why is biogas an important factor of an emission-free industry?
What is the advantage of biomethane?
Why is hydrogen so important?
Biomethane is an important component of sector coupling and a precursor for other fuels.
Green hydrogen requires renewable energy sources. In addition to PV (photovoltaics) and wind power plants, biogas plants also come into question here. Regeneratively generated electricity is converted into hydrogen with water in electrolysers. In biogas plants, the resulting biomethane is converted by steam reforming.
In the context of sector coupling, different energy sources are converted into each other. Hydrogen can be produced from biomethane. The reverse process is the methanation of hydrogen. This takes place via catalytic or biological processes.
The sun as a source of energy is freely available to us in many places. Wherever free areas allow, the production of solar power is an important component of the energy transition.
ARCANUM has already supported many projects for the use of PV systems. These include ground-mounted systems, e.g., on landfill sites or military areas (so-called conversion areas), as well as rooftop systems.
CO2 equivalents are the definition of greenhouse gases. All efforts by industry are aimed at reducing CO2 emissions as far as possible. Agriculture, on the other hand, is considered a CO2 sink because agricultural plants bind atmospheric CO2.
Due to its origin (bonded atmospheric CO2), the CO2 captured during the upgrading of biogas can be regarded as neutral in terms of climate balance. After biogas upgrading, it is available in high purity and climate neutral.
The separated CO2 in a biogas treatment plant can be liquefied and then used to produce dry ice or in the methanisation of H2 and as a basic chemical. This can significantly improve the carbon footprint of these products.
