Sunderland-based Puregas Solutions today announced the placement of a further contract to supply a CApure biogas upgrading plant.
The plant in Wiltshire will upgrade up to 700Nm3/hr of raw biogas from the anaerobic digestion of agricultural residues to UK gas grid specification, producing enough energy to heat around 3,500 homes.
”We have selected Puregas Solutions to provide the biogas upgrading plant for this project due to their excellent track record, the plant’s high methane recovery and their ability to integrate with the AD plant” commented Frank Kenny, Director of Water and Waste Services Ltd who will design and build the AD plant.
The CApure process recovers over 99.9% of the biomethane present in the raw biogas, by chemically adsorbing the CO2.. The selective organic solvents used in this process are highly efficient, resulting in an end product containing more than 99% methane. The biomethane is of high enough calorific value to be directly injected into the natural gas grid without the need to enrich with propane saving significant costs.
With more than 15 years of experience Puregas Solutions provides fully integrated solutions for biogas upgrading and have over 20 plants already operating across Europe.
Water and Waste Services design and build AD plant for the municipal, agricultural and industrial sectors.

Puregas Solutions is a Swedish based company delivering highly efficient and extremely reliable biogas upgrading solutions. A Global market leader, Puregas has subsidiaries in the UK, Denmark, Germany and the USA.
With over 20 years of experience Puregas Solutions manufactures and supplies Biogas Upgrading Plants. The unique CApure upgrading process recovers over 99.9% of the available methane from the raw biogas, maximising biomethane yields and revenues with exceptionally low operational costs. Puregas provides fully integrated solutions for biogas upgrading and have over 30 plants already operating.
Our process recovers over 99.9% of the biomethane present in the raw biogas by separating the CO2 from the biogas through a process of chemical adsorption. The selective organic solvents used in this process are so efficient that the end product can contain more than 99% methane and is suitable for vehicle fuel or to be injected into the natural gas grid.
The UK has over 60 biogas upgrading plants injecting biomethane into the grid. Capacity has reached almost 3.5TWh/y, enough to displace almost four 60,000 tonne LNG tankers!
