SHANGHAI, China: Xebec Adsorption Inc. has signed a deal worth just over $1 million to provide a complete biogas upgrading plant to Heilongjiang Loonggas Investment Co., Ltd. in China.

Xebec, a Montreal-based provider of biogas upgrading, natural gas and hydrogen purification systems for the clean energy market, said the new project will be engineered and manufactured at its Shanghai facility, and installed at an anaerobic digester site in Heilongjiang province.

Municipal organic waste will generate the biogas that will be upgraded to biomethane for injection into the utility’s natural gas pipeline grid, but it could also be used as a transportation fuel.

The company will provide a complete biogas upgrading operation, which features the newest version of Xebec’s proprietary M-8100 rapid-cycle pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology.

“Our newest generation of adsorption technology gives us a substantial edge in market-leading performance metrics and is expected to help position our company as the leader in biogas upgrading solutions in China,” said Andrew Hall Xebec’s vice-president of Asia Pacific.

Xebec touts its systems’ environmental benefits, noting they consume the least power and use a dry process that produces no environmental emissions.

Commissioning and start-up of the upgrading plants is set for the fourth quarter of 2011.
