The first commercial biological methanation plant

Significant milestone on the way to climate-friendly energy

We are very excited to announce that Gruppo Hera, the Pietro Fiorentini S.p.A. Group, and MicroPyros will be working together to build a commercial biological methanation plant in Bologna Corticella. This exciting news was made official at the Gastech 2022 in Milan, Italy.

The new plant will be called SynBioS (Syngas Biological Storage). This milestone in biological Power-to-Methane will be used to demonstrate how to overcome the variable power from renewable problems by first converting the electricity into hydrogen through Power-to-Gas, and then converting the hydrogen into biomethane through biological methanation.
