Hosted by Queen’s University, CASE funds collaborative, industry-led research also at Ulster University and government-backed research body, the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (ABFI).
The new partnership will seek to quantify the opportunity available to harness biomethane from agricultural waste across Northern Ireland for injection into the natural gas grid locally, creating a renewable gas home-heating solution.
Biomethane injection into the natural gas network has been proven in countries right across Europe, demonstrating the ability of the natural gas infrastructure to transport and deliver a blended form of home-heating fuel.
CASE is funded by Invest NI, and has recently launched a call for new project applications. Further details can be found at: https://www.case-research.net/
