Within the ENGIE company, the ENGIE Lab CRIGEN, a corporate R&D center of ENGIE dedicated to new gases and energies, conducts operational R&D projects and develops pilots for the Business Units and corporate entities of ENGIE as well as external customers, in an effort to master tomorrow’s technologies, bring them to maturity, and prepare the Energy Transition. ENGIE Lab CRIGEN creates value through innovative low-carbon solutions for ENGIE’s customers and innovative solutions to improve operational excellence of industrial assets based on three different pillars:
- New gases (biogas, biomethane, hydrogen, Power to gas and Power to Liquid, LNG and retail LNG)
- New uses of energy (energy storage, future building and cities, future industry, green mobility, societal and environmental impacts)
- Digital and Enabling Technologies (Drones and robot, artificial intelligence and computer science, nanotechnologies and sensors
Regarding hydrogen ENGIE Lab CRIGEN is involved from more than 15 years in the whole value chain, on technological R&D and expertise (production, transport, distribution and uses), process modelling and simulation, tools development implemented in pilots and demonstrators.
Role in the project: in the framework of MEASURED project, Engie will design and construct the gas separation system in collaboration with TUE. Engie is also in charge of testing the gas separation prototype on its GAYA platform in Saint Fons (France) for upgrading gas stream from CO2 methanation.
