Course description

Due to diminishing domestic production, the import of natural gas from abroad will increase significantly in the coming years. At the same time, the drive towards sustainability has given momentum to the production of renewable gases such as biogas, which can be injected in the natural gas grid. These 'new gases' generally have different compositions than the natural gas that is presently being distributed. Due to this diversity of supply, the composition of the gas could vary more than is currently the case.

These changes in the composition, usually referred to as changes in 'gas quality', and the resulting changes in combustion behavior, could mean that end-users installations need to be adapted to continue performing acceptably with 'new' gases.

This one day course helps companies and organizations to respond to these developments.


  • Insight into essential aspects of the 'new gases' in end-use equipment
  • A clear picture of the possible consequences of gas quality variations for the end user
  • Insight into solutions/measures to maintain the safety and effectiveness of end-use equipment when supplied with 'new gases'.

This course is available upon request, please contact us for further information on this course.


  • Overview of the composition of different gas types and their possible effects on the behavior of end-use equipment
  • Dutch and European development
  • Practical solutions for end-use equipment

Target audience

Industrial and commercial end users of natural gas, and manufacturers, suppliers and installers of combustion equipment, both for the domestic and small business market and energy-intensive industries. The course is also of definite interest to employees of branch organizations and interest groups.
