TRAS 120

The introduction of biogas membranes that comply with the TRAS guidelines (Safety Requirements for Biogas Plants – TRAS 120) marks a significant advance in the biogas industry. The innovative membranes offer a reliable and safe solution for the efficient use of biogas while minimizing risks.
Biogas plants produce large amounts of biogas, which has the potential for electrostatic charging and the creation of flammable atmospheres. In compliance with TRAS 120 guidelines, which follow strict safety standards, Heytex offers special biogas membranes to meet these challenges.
These membranes have antistatic properties that prevent electrostatic charging and possible discharges. This is critical to ensure the safety of the working environment in biogas plants and minimize potential risks to employees and equipment.

In addition, these membranes also meet flame retardant requirements. They are designed to prevent the spread of flames, reducing the risk of fires or explosions in the biogas plant. This ensures the protection of people and the environment and contributes to the safety of the entire operation.
The mechanical strength of biogas membranes is of great importance to ensure that they can withstand the harsh conditions in biogas plants. These membranes must be resistant to mechanical stresses that can be caused by pressure, stretching or movement. By incorporating robust materials and a structural design built for durability and resilience, these membranes ensure long-term performance and reduce the risk of damage or leakage.
The reflectance of the outer membranes plays an important role in controlling heat transfer in biogas plants. By using membranes with a high reflectance, solar radiation can be effectively reflected, which helps prevent excessive heat buildup. This is especially important to control the temperature in biogas reactors and ensure the efficient production of biogas.

The methane gas permeability of biogas membranes influences the efficiency of biogas production. Suitable permeability enables controlled gas exchange by minimizing the escape of methane while limiting the entry of oxygen. This is critical to creating an optimal environment for anaerobic digestion and maximizing biogas yield.
Biogas membranes in the HEYgreen product range are precisely tailored to the requirements of the various process steps. As a result, they make a significant contribution to safety and efficiency and an important contribution to environmental protection through the generation of energy from biomass.
