Wartsila Puregas Solutions to feature at next years Value of Biogas
The 2019 Value of Biogas West Conference will be held in Vancouver, B.C. at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel (1180 West Hastings Street Vancouver) on January 15th and 16th. Day 1 will begin with a half-day Biogas Operator’s Forum. Hear first-hand what it is like to operate a biogas plant, including important issues to consider when planning your own biogas plant, and key lessons learned from biogas plant owners.
Wartsila Puregas Solutions is a Swedish based company with headquarters in Kalmar. In October 2017, Puregas Solutions was acquired by Wärtsilä Corporation to be a catalyst towards a digital and performance driven business. Puregas Solutions specialise in delivering efficient and reliable biogas upgrading solutions. A global market leader, Puregas Solutions has subsidiary companies in Germany, Denmark, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
With more than 20 years history and experience Puregas Solutions designs and delivers biogas upgrading solutions using the unique CApure process. Raw Biogas is upgraded to biomethane / Renewable Natural Gas RNG for direct grid injection, compression for vehicle fuelling (bioCNG) or liquefied to provide bioLNG. In all cases a very low carbon alternative fuel.
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 absorption. The selective organic solvents used in this process are so efficient that the product gas can contain over 99% biomethane. The biomethane or Renewable Natural Gas can be directly injected in to the gas grid, compressed to produce bio-CNG or liquefied for bio-LNG. It’s also possible to capture the CO2 from the plant and use this for commercial purposes. All plants are fully factory tested and third party inspected prior to shipment.
Linda Kraft, Project Manager for Puregas Solutions explains:
“Because the upgrading plant undergoes a comprehensive Factory Acceptance Test, any remedial actions necessary can be performed in the workshop prior to shipping. This means that we only need to focus on the mechanical and electrical installation on site, safe in the knowledge that the process is stable and the plant is ready to go”.
