ENGIE investment triggers €3.45 million biogas technology order

Canadian clean energy solutions company Xebec Adsorption (Xebec) announced that it will be providing Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) units to companies in both France and Brazil, including a €3.45 million order for an undisclosed French partner.

A stand-alone PSA unit, also known as a Nitrogen Rejection Unit (NRU) will be shipped to Brazil for gas network firm Gasgrid Gas e Energia (Gasgrid) who will use the unit to purify its biomethane to renewable natural gas (RNG) with a heating value that will exceed 685/2017 Brazilian Gas Resolution (Standard) specifications.

“Xebec has found a niche market for increasing biomethane heating value by adding our PSA adsorption process within currently operating biogas upgrading plants,” said Prabhu Rao, CEO of Xebec.

“Brazil is expecting to produce 500,000 m³/day of biomethane by the end of 2019, and Xebec hopes to play an important role in that development.”

According to Xebec, its French partner has won contracts for biogas upgrading systems where Xebec will be supplying the core technology. Multiple PSA units are to be shipped totalling €3.45 million in investment.

Xebec claims that the contracts follow from global energy and services group ENGIE’s decision to mobilise €800 million to develop biogases, solidifying the French biogas sector.

“Xebec has already successfully delivered over 50 biogas systems in the last 15 years, so we know our experience plays an important role in being a supplier of choice for the multitude of projects now surfacing both in North America and Europe,” said Rao.

“Now that we are in position to support local manufacturing and service needs, we are confident that our solutions offer the best value in the marketplace.”
