Converting raw biogas into high purity biomethane

Gas processing and renewable energy production - Project management - Turnkey engineering design (standardised design or design adapted to the customer’s needs) - On-site construction and installation - Plant commissioning and maintenance -

The need

Current biogas producers experience uncertainty in their expected return when investing in technical solutions aimed at transforming biomass into an energy resource.

The solution

Arol Energy’s Amine product is a purification unit which transforms raw biogas into biomethane based on highly efficient removal of CO2 by heat-driven amine. The biomethane is then available for injection into the natural gas grid or for use as vehicle fuel. Amine uses standardised modules which produce high purity biomethane (> 98% CH4) causing limited methane losses of no more than 0.1% making off-gas treatment unnecessary.

The value proposition

• Turnkey solution, addressing both the economic and technical issues of the customer.
• Able to address the three conversion segments: electricity, gas injection, and biofuel.
• Biomethane production from biowaste, waste water treatment, and agricultural wastes.
• Power range from 0.3MW to 12MW.
