DOLBEAU-MISTASSINI, Que. — Sysgaz Inc. has unveiled plans to implement renewable liquefied natural gas (R-LNG) production plants across Quebec to form the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Regional Corridor (SLRC), the first R-LNG network supplied with small scale production plants.
The SLRC will be connected to Gaz Métro’s Blue Route, which will allow SLRC plants to connect to the LNG networks of North America.
It will include six liquefaction plants with a production capacity of approximately 75 tons per day, or 100 000 diesel liters equivalent per day. Construction of the plants and refuelling infrastructures will take four years to complete and will require an $85 million investment.
Sysgaz says the network will provide affordable and low-polluting fuel alternative for industrial and trucking companies of the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region. The liquefied fuel is expected to be 25% cheaper than diesel and the R-LNG produced from landfill gas will generate 80% less greenhouse gases than diesel.
The network will use a new technology called R-LNG Process, which was developed by Sysgaz. It integrates landfill gas production, upgrading and liquefaction systems to transform multiple methane gas sources into R-LNG within a single production plant.
It can be deployed in a variety of small scale production plants (10-50 TPD) and is capable of pre-mixing multiple methane gas sources from landfills, anaerobic digesters or low pressure gas networks to produce liquefied fuels.
Sysgaz Inc., based in Montreal, was founded in 2009 and is a manufacturer of small scale liquefaction plants that transform methane gas sources into Renewable LNG (R-LNG) or standard liquefied natural gas (LNG).
