Purac Puregas, a Swedish manufacturer of biogas upgrading equipment, has shipped its first BGS membrane upgrading plant from its Kalmar facility this morning, bound for Rybjerg in northern Denmark.

 

The company explained due to the nature of the site it wasn’t possible to install one of its CApure biogas upgrading plants, so instead it took the opportunity to supply one of its new line of Membrane Upgrading Plants.

 

“The high efficiency polymer membranes used are amongst the most efficient in the industry, and combined with our superior build quality and process know how provide the perfect solution,” commented Rolf Hakkason, business development manager for Purac Puregas.
 

The BGS biogas upgrading plants are based on a modular design. This is said to allow for the manufacture of standardised, pre-fabricated units that are pre-tested, process optimised and quality controlled in production prior to delivery, reducing site time and cost for both installation and commissioning.

Purac explained that the modules are built to exacting standards to ensure quality control and operational reliability. All modules are also fully tested and approved by a certified third party inspector, to ensure that the biogas upgrading plants meet international quality, safety and performance requirements.

According to Purac the plant which will upgrade up to 900 cubic metres per hour of raw biogas from the anaerobic digestion of pig manure, and is thought to be the first of its kind in Denmark.

The company added that raw biogas from the AD plant will be upgraded and injected into the Danish gas network, providing renewable green energy in the form of biomethane.
