New solution for high-purity landfill fuel gas for power plants
- ENERGYneering Solutions Inc. signs first deal for Topsoe’s HiPerFuel™ landfill gas conditioning solution
- HiPerFuel™ will drive down operational costs and downtime for landfill gas power plant operators
- The solution removes siloxanes and sulfur from landfill gas to provide high-purity fuel gas
ENERGYneering Solutions Inc. (ESI), a US O&M contractor and engineering company in the landfill gas industry, have signed a supply and service contract for Topsoe’s proprietary HiPerFuel™ landfill gas conditioning solution. The HiPerFuel™ unit will provide high-purity fuel gas for an ESI landfill gas power plant in Washington State.
“We are excited about the possibilities with this new solution from Topsoe. The solution Topsoe is offering is unique to the industry in that it offers high siloxane removal efficiency and long media life comparable with many of the regenerative systems on the market while avoiding the typically high capital and operating costs associated with dehydration of the gas and thermal oxidation of waste gasses. We are very much looking forward to seeing the effects of running our engines on a siloxane-free gas,” says William Song, Director of Engineering, ESI.
Siloxanes are an inherent problem for the more than 500 landfill gas power plants in the U.S. During combustion they convert into sand-like particles that cause deposits and erosion inside power generating equipment that leads to excessive maintenance costs and down-time. For those plants that utilize backend treatment to improve engine exhaust emissions, siloxanes can also cause significant damage to emissions control catalysts.
“In Topsoe, we are thrilled to offer best-in-class solutions for fuel pre-treatment, renewable natural gas and advanced emissions control for the landfill gas industry. We are offering proprietary solutions that have been tried and tested in other industries and they will enable the industry to take an important step forward. ESI is an innovator within the industry, and we look forward to our collaboration,” says Kresten Egeblad, Business Development Manager, Topsoe Sustainables.
