Biogas Upgrading Plant - BioCompact

The cost-effective approach to turning small flows of biogas into bio-methane (RNG) is realized with Pentair’s upgrading solution BioCompact. Integrating our Pentair experience, we have combined the compression and membrane solution into one skid. These skids range from 125 Nm3 to 750 Nm3 and are designed for easy integration with existing infrastructure or, when required (and as an option), can be placed in a standardized enclosure.

COST-EFFICIENT SMALL PRODUCTION BIOGAS RECOVERY

Biogas is a key renewable energy source. Pentair is your partner in turning small biogas flows into a valuable stream of bio-methane. The cost-effective approach to turning small flows of biogas into bio-methane (RNG) is realized with Pentair’s upgrading solution BioCompact. Integrating our Pentair experience, we have combined the compression and membrane solution into one skid.

These skids range from 125 Nm3 to 750 Nm3 and are designed for easy integration with existing infrastructure or, when required (and as an option), can be placed in a standardized enclosure. The bio-methane can be injected into existing gas grids or utilized as fuel for transportation as CNG (compressed natural gas). Optional standardized CNG compressors are available to create a very cost-efficient system producing Bio-CNG.

BioCompact is easily maintained by your local team requiring only a biennial specialized maintenance visit. Interested extra assistance? We offer a 24/7 service solution without a monthly fee. We only charge you when you need the service, creating a cost-effective option for maximizing your uptime.


Did you know that our BioCompact embodies the core of our experience in membrane-based biogas upgrading technology with the smallest possible footprint while offering the same advantages, performance and quality as our larger solutions.

SCOPE OF SUPPLY

Biogas Upgrading Plant - BioCompact - Image 2

PROCESS DESCRIPTION

In the pre-treatment, water and contaminants are removed from the biogas. The biogas pre-treatment allows for modest contamination levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) -- for bulk removal of H2S or VOC’s, other options are available. After pre-treatment, the biogas is compressed to the most OPEX and CAPEX efficient pressure that allows for removal of CO2. The membranes then remove the CO2 from the methane to meet the required Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) specifications. Upgraded bio-methane can be injected into the national grid or further processed to renewable CNG or LNG.


OPTIONS

  • Enclosed Skid plug and play unit
  • Biogas blower
  • Activated carbon-based bulk pre-treatment (H2S and VOC)
  • Gas Entry Unit
  • CNG compression and storage solutions
  • Installation and commissioning services
  • CO2 recovery addition (produce liquid CO2)
