    UPGRADING OF LANDFILL GAS - MICROBIOLOGICAL DESULPHURISATION AND BIOMETHANE PRODUCTION

    We are engaged in a very interesting project on a French landfill in Vert-le-Grand, about 40 km south of Paris. Here, our measuring technology is used for the microbiological desulphurisation as well as for the subsequent biogas upgrading and feeding into the natural gas network through SYSADVANCE.

    A volume flow up to 500 m³/h of raw biogas passes through the biological H2S scrubbing and purifies from a maximum of 1,500 ppm to an H2S content of less than 10 ppm. The pure oxygen for the desulphurisation is produced and provided by oxygen generators of SYSADVANCE.

     We gladly let our customer, Patrick Bárcia, Research & Development Manager SYSADVANCE, give a further statement:

    “We trust in AWITE strong technical knowledge and measurement quality since 2016 when we ordered and integrated the first AWIFLEX Cool+ XL in one of our METHAGEN biogas upgrading plants. Among others, some distinctive features are the reliability of the continuous gas composition measurement allied to the accurate compensation control of atmospheric pressure variation and efficient sampling conditioning system. The VPSA technology for biogas upgrading developed by SYSADVANCE makes use of continuous monitoring of biomethane product composition trends to establish a close control of the process operating parameters. This combined performance, results in a superior process yield, allowing our METHAGEN VPSA technology to reach more than 99% of CH4 recovery at gt; 98 vol% of CH4 concentration in the biomethane product. A higher recovery rate also leads to a lower electrical OPEX, around 0,42 kWh/Nm3 of on-spec biomethane delivered at 6 barg.

    Recently, we have integrated 3 AWIFLEX Cool+ XL gas analysers in a challenging project of landfill-to-grid in France. The composition of the biogas is measured in different points along a double stage adsorption process. AWITE’s reliability allowed us to inject already +1 million Nm3of renewable natural gas in the French natural gas grid.

    In addition, we have also had a very good experience with the integration of the AWIFLEX in CCU projects from flue gas or biogas waste streams.

    Also, they offer us a quite efficient remote support when needed. In sum, SYSADVANCE will for sure continue this profitable partnership in the future!”

     

    Since customer satisfaction is a key part of our company philosophy, we are particularly pleased about such a great statement. Thank you very much!

    Repowering

    DOES A MODERNIZATION MAKE SENSE FOR ME AND MY PLANT?

    -Yes, because I do a lot by hand.

    -Yes, because timetable-controlled operation is not possible.

    -Yes, because the creator of my system is no longer available.

    -Yes, because the availability of my control system or the creator is very limited.

    -Yes, because asking prices appear excessive.


    WHO WILL HELP ME?

    Our professional team will be happy to come to your plant so that we can assess the current state together. Don't worry, we will keep using what makes sense in terms of technology, and we are neutral, independent, and flexible. You support us with existing documents from planning (circuit diagrams, R&I diagrams, as-built documentation).


    WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

    We will make you a proposal that makes good business sense, and then we will be happy to start the implementation together. We visualize and automate your process with AwiCONTROL. We will gladly do a joint start-up commissioning during which everything is tested and you get trained to become the specialist on our system.


    WHAT CAN I LOOK FORWARD TO?

    -Less downtime

    -Less labour

    -More reliability

    -Less own power consumption

    -Identification of potential savings by analyzing and evaluating data

    -AwiRemote ... monitor whenever and wherever you want

    -More peace of mind and more time for the renewable future


    SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST.

    You may receive funding for modernization and digitization measures. If you are in Bavaria,
    we will gladly accompany you in getting the digital bonus and help you to get 10,000 EUR in support of your project. Let's get started!
