Puregas Solutions install first bioLNG plant

Today, the installation of our first CApure CA70LBG marked a significant milestone for Puregas Solutions.

The Biogas Upgrading Plant was installed at the Skogn Papermill, Norway in early June.
The plant, which will upgrade up to 3,000Nm3/h of raw biogas to Renewable Natural Gas, will be part of the largest biogas liquefaction plant in the Nordic Countries producing fuel for public transport vehicles.

“We are extremely proud to be involved in this project. Our unique CApure process is ideally suited to Liquefaction Projects as we are able to reduce the CO2 content of the biomethane to below 50ppm, making liquefaction possible.”

Said Sven Fischer, Key Account Manager bioLNG, Puregas Solutions.

The plant will convert the cleaned biogas from fishery waste and residual paper mill slurry into liquid bioLNG fuel.

The project builds on the cooperation between Wärtsilä and Puregas Solutions, delivering turnkey bioLNG plants including additional infrastructure like storage and export facilities.

The system has been specially designed to liquefy small methane-based gas streams.
This novel technology is based on readily available, well proven components, but features an advanced process design and control system.
The environmental benefits of delivering renewable liquid biogas fuel are enhanced by the fact that sulphur oxide (SOx) and particle emissions are virtually eliminated, while any released CO2 has zero environmental impact since it is part of the existing circulatory CO2.
“The system offers low operating costs and is energy efficient. Furthermore, the environmental footprint will be minimal,” said Timo Koponen, VP at Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
“By enabling profitable projects for smaller gas streams, we are aiding the EU’s target of having 10% renewable fuel by the year 2020,” he continued.
Having the biogas as cryogenic liquid rather than as compressed gas makes it a viable fuel for heavy vehicles, since sufficient energy can be stored on-board.
