IPowerE Upcoming Webinars
Renewable Biogas and Hydrogen Fuels
June 20 15:00 BST (UTC+1)
Producing renewable biogas and hydrogen fuels to reduce natural gas dependence is another key page in our playbook to reduce net carbon and methane emissions and improve energy security.
Expanding biogas production and building generating capacity capable of 100% biogas and hydrogen operation are important aspects of the ongoing energy transition.
During this webinar speakers from DB Agri Ltd and Accelleron will explore farm scale biogas production and turbocharger technology for reciprocating engine operation on biogas and hydrogen fuels.
