Xebec lands CAD$6 million biogas plant deal in Italy
Renewable gas provider Xebec Adsorption announced that it has signed a CAD$6 million (€3.9 million) contract for a landfill biogas upgrading plant in Italy.
After the plant is operational, it is estimated to produce 5 million cubic metres of carbon-neutral renewable natural gas (RNG) yearly.
“Upgraded landfill gas to RNG is playing an increasingly important role in the deployment of low carbon fuels in transportation,” said Kurt Sorschak, president and CEO of Xebec.
“We expect Xebec to be a fundamental change agent in this transition, as we move from a fossil fuel economy to a low carbon renewable energy future.”
Xebec claims that recent legislation changes in Italy has sparked an interest in its biogas market. It outlines that the Italian government set aside €4.7 billion in incentives to encourage large gas producers and biomethane in transport.
“Xebec is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this fast-growing global market as our innovative, proprietary, fast cycle adsorption technology is generating an increasing amount of customer interest, mainly due to lower initial investment costs, low operating and maintenance costs, flexible and stable performance, combined with high durability and reliability,” said Dr. Prabhu Rao, COO of Xebec.
