Puregas Solutions has today been awarded a second contract to supply a CA50 LBG biogas upgrading plant to Finnish energy solutions provider Wärtsilä. The Puregas upgrading plant, capable of handling up to 1,250Nm3/h of biogas, will form part of a larger contract to supply a biohybrid production plant to the German energy company, Erdgas Südwest GmbH. The new plant will produce both bioLNG (liquefied biomethane) and LNG.
“We’re extremely proud to be involved in this innovative new project” said Sven Fischer, Key Account Manager BioLNG, Puregas Solutions. “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 in one step, making liquefaction to bio-LNG possible.”
Wärtsilä reported that the technology for this plant represents a new and unique response to market needs to liquefy and store methane-based energy streams. Both gas cleaning and liquefaction are cost- and energy efficient, thereby making profitable projects possible even for smaller gas streams. This is especially important within the European Union where the target is to have 10 percent of the fuel produced from renewable sources by 2020.
The new biohybrid solution will be integrated into the customer’s existing biowaste-to-biogas production facility, whilst LNG production will be part of the customer’s existing pipeline gas infrastructure.
“This is a very important milestone for us at Erdgas Südwest. It is a completely new concept adapted to the future needs of the German energy market, and we see a great future for this type of storage solution,” says Oliver Auras, Project Director, Erdgas Südwest GmbH.

Puregas Solutions is a Swedish based company delivering highly efficient 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.
The CApure 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 less than 50ppm of C02, making it possible to then liquefy the biomethane to produce bio-LNG (R-LNG)
