Gaya, or how to produce green gas from dry biomass

Gaya, or how to produce green gas from dry biomass

Biomethane has the same properties as natural gas, but it is a 100% renewable clean energy. To develop the sustainable production of this green gas at a local level, ENGIE has been developing the Gaya project for several years – a platform for producing biomethane from dry biomass (wood, straw, agricultural and food waste, etc.). Inaugurated in October 2017 at Saint-Fons in Chemical Valley, south of Lyon, Gaya is a key milestone in the development of so-called 2G (2nd Generation) biomethane.
