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.
