Within this work, the design, build-up and operational experiences of Austria’s first Bio-CNG fuelling station in Margarethen/Moos are presented. The biogas upgrading technology based on membrane separation and its performance is described, modeling and simulation tools for the plant design are presented and the integration of the upgrading plant into the existing biogas plant is outlined. It can be shown, that the application of Gas Permeation together with a local Bio-CNG fuelling station leads to an ecologically reasonable and economically feasible solution to the forthcoming needs of the transportation sector.
