Catalytically thermal disposal of methane-lean gases (MethaKat)

The project participants research processes for suitable disposal of gases containing methane, which are produced primarily in waste dumpsites and former bituminous coal mines. These climate-damaging gases are presently not treated if their methane content does not reach at least 25 volume percent. The untreated gases are thus released to the atmosphere. The project result is a successful method for thermal disposal of methane-lean gases by means of a catalyst.
