Xebec to deploy NRU at US landfill gas project

By Xebec Adsorption Inc. | August 16, 2018

Xebec Adsorption Inc., a global provider of clean energy solutions, recently announced that it has received a multi-million dollar landfill gas upgrading order for a nitrogen rejection unit (NRU) from a U.S. based customer. The system will be delivered in Q1/2019.

Xebec has been developing and refining its landfill gas purification technology for decades, and today offers the leading edge solution for the separation of nitrogen (N2), oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) within a single stage pressure swing adsorption (PSA) unit.

This particular Xebec PSA system, customized for this landfill application, has the lowest operating and maintenance cost compared to all other NRU technologies. The system can operate in a wide range of CO2 levels, allowing full optimization of the CO2 removal process upstream of the NRU, maximizing the overall efficiency of the landfill gas upgrading plant.

 “Xebec offers methane recovery rates of 95 percent-plus in two-stage configurations for applications where the N2 levels are elevated and high recovery rates are important,” said Kurt Sorschak, president and CEO of Xebec. “We are very excited to have been selected by one of the largest U.S-based landfill gas-to-energy developers, since it will allow us to demonstrate our latest technology development and showcase the performance of our systems. Upgraded landfill gas to RNG is playing an increasingly important role in the deployment of low carbon fuels in transportation. We expect Xebec to be playing an important role in this transition, as we move from a fossil fuel economy to a low carbon renewable energy future.”
