Biovoima delivered a gas compression unit for landfill gas pressurization to Spanish Edifesa (Estudios, dirección e investigación de fermentaciones especiales, s.a.) in 2020.
Gas compression unit pressurizates the gas from 50 mbar pressure to 10 bar and can handle 15 normal cubic meters an hour (~15 Nm3/h). Gas compression unit used is Fornovo Gas compressor. Biovoima handled designing and equipment installation and commissioning.
Biomethane or natural gas can be compressed i.e. pressurized to high pressures up to 300 bar (typically to 250 bar) for its transportation. When compressing the gas, its volume decreases and thus its transportability improves.
