With successful laboratory and pilot scale field trials completed Biogas Energy have reached out to major players in the Australian unconventional gas space to bring their patented technology to market. Santos, one of four companies collaborating with the CSIRO, have recommended integrating the Biogas Energy research program at UNSW with the CSIRO program. ‘Our technology to enhance biogenic methane production from coal is theoretically compatible with what the CSIRO have been developing over the last few years’ says Biogas Energy co-director Peter Francis. ‘It is the right time to see how the distinct technologies compare and how well they work in concert’. Preliminary laboratory tests are underway.
