Xebec Adsorption Inc., a global provider of gas generation, purification, and filtration solutions has received more than CDN 9.8 million in recent biogas orders from Europe and China. The Canadian company says its latest biogas upgrading systems are achieving greater than 99% methane recovery.
In France, 12 more contracts have been won through Xebec’s French partner for biogas upgrading systems to be delivered in 2018. For this group of projects, Xebec will supply core technology while its partner will provide the complete biogas upgrading systems. One system in particular will be the company’s largest project yet in France – upgrading 2,000 Nm3/h of biogas into biomethane, also known as renewable natural gas (RNG), for injection into the national grid.
In Italy, the company has received an order for a flange-to-flange agri-food waste biogas upgrading plant to be located close to Modena in the Emilia-Romagna region for 1,000 Nm3/h of biogas to be upgraded to RNG for injection into their national grid.
In China, Xebec received yet another order for delivery of a complete biogas upgrading plant to be located at a waste water treatment plant (WWTP) in the city of Suzhou in Jiangsu province, to upgrade 1,250 Nm3/h of biogas to RNG. The gas will be injected into the local town gas grid.
Xebec High Recovery
“Xebec’s latest biogas upgrading system deployments in Europe are achieving performance levels of >99% methane recovery, thanks to a break-through in our adsorption technology that not only improves methane recovery, but reduces operating costs,” says Dr. Amir Ghasdi, Director, Advanced Gas Purification Systems, Xebec.
Delivered as skidded, containerized modules, Xebec’s PSAs [pressure swing adsorption] have accumulated over 15 million commercial operating hours with proven availabilities beyond 99%.
These latest orders demonstrate the rapidly growing need for RNG – at a tipping point worldwide. Not only do they solidify Xebec’s 2017 order book but they demonstrate the potential for a strong foundation for 2018 orders. The company has delivered more than 50 biogas systems delivered over the last 15 years in North America, Europe and Asia.
