LONDON, February 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- CycleØ Group Limited (CycleØ) today announces the acquisition of Biogasclean, a leading Danish company in biological desulfurization and methanation systems. CycleØ, a leading pan-European biomethane platform, develops, builds, and operates its own renewable natural gas (RNG) projects in Europe and Latin America.

Ara Partners, a leading private equity and infrastructure investment firm in industrial decarbonization, provided the additional capital to facilitate the transaction.

This strategic acquisition represents an important milestone for CycleØ and the biomethane sector in general, as it will provide more efficient and completely circular solutions by capturing the biogenic CO contained in biogas and converting it into synthetic methane, a sustainable gas derived from green hydrogen that It can be stored or used as an alternative to fossil natural gas.

The ability to capture CO and convert it into synthetic methane will increase the efficiency of biomethane facilities, further reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing sustainable gas production by around 70%.

"We are delighted to welcome the talented and experienced team at Biogasclean" stated Laurence Molke, CEO of CycleØ. "Integrating their patented biocatalyst technologies into our biomethane plants will allow us to increase the production of fuels with even more negative carbon emissions for the electrification sectors, such as industry, heavy transport and the gas grid."

Biogasclean is a global player in the biological desulfurization sector, with five offices on three continents and more than 350 systems operating or underway in more than 40 countries.

The company's innovative biological methanation technology has been proven as an integral part of the world's largest plant to produce, on a commercial scale, synthetic methane through electrolysis and biological methanation. These facilities are located in Sønderborg on Als in Denmark and inject 33 GWh of sustainable synthetic methane into the gas grid annually.

"We are at a crucial time and the window to avoid the worst effects of climate change is narrowing every day," said Niels Holst Jensen, CEO of Biogasclean. “Together, CycleØ and Biogasclean are uniquely positioned to reduce methane emissions and capture CO from the atmosphere, at scale.”

Chris Picotte, partner at Ara Partners, said: "CycleØ's acquisition of Biogasclean completes circularity in the group's biomethane production and helps Europe meet its aggressive 2030 decarbonisation targets.

"This operation is a further reflection of Ara's sustainability principles and our continued focus on decarbonizing key sectors with proven technologies."
