Frames completes H2S removal upgrade at biogas plant

Netherlands based Frames Renewable Energy Solutions has completed work on a biogas upgrading plant for a manure processing specialist.

The upgrade installation, at the Groot Zevert Vergisting facility in the Dutch city of Beltrum, has recently started production. According to a statement from Frames, the upgrade will facilitate the delivery of 8 million cubic metres of biogas a year to the FrieslandCampina dairy co-operative in Borculo. FrieslandCampina will use that biogas for the production of steam.

Frames’ designed and then installed a biogas upgrading installation to effectively remove H2S (hydrogen sulphide) from the biogas to below 3ppm. The installation therefore protects compressors and other critical parts of the biogas upgrading plants from corrosion. It also allows the biogas to be injected into a pipeline and transported to FreislandCampina.

Encouraging climate-neutral projects is a key goal for Frames. “We develop innovative technologies and feel it is our responsibility to offer sustainable solutions for energy production with a small ecological footprint,” said Nick Ten Asbroek, sales manager at Frames Renewable Energy Solutions.

“This project and the Frames LAMINOL technology we integrated in the installation, prove our know-how and ability to successfully innovate the energy and biogas market with smart and cost-efficient solutions.”

The company claims its solution for the removal of corrosive HS is unique in the biogas market. “The Frames LAMINOL H2S technology that is used at the Groot Zevert Vergisting installation is a cost-effective alternative to conventional biogas sweetening processes such as impregnated active carbon or solid dry bed processes to prevent hydrogen sulfide corrosion,” explained Ten Asbroek. “The LAMINOL technology is capable of selectively removing H2S from CO2 rich gas streams to a few ppm level even at near atmospheric gas pressure.”
