Burnaby, Canada (PressExposure) April 23, 2013 -- Greenlane Biogas, a subsidiary of the Flotech Group of companies (founded in 1986), is pleased to confirm that it will install a 'Totara+' biogas upgrading system at the Fair Oaks Dairy farm in Indiana to process up to 1500 scfm (approximately 2500 Nm3/hr) of biogas. UTS Residual Processing, an Anaergia Company, will be integrating and operating the biogas upgrading plant which will upgrade biogas from the digestion of dairy manure at the Fair Oaks Farm. The intent is to produce renewable natural gas suitable for fuelling a fleet of over 42 trucks hauling raw milk. The remainder being injected into the local natural gas pipeline network.
Bernie Sheff, President of UTS-Residual Processing said: "UTS-RP completed a thorough assessment of the biogas upgrading technologies available and selected Greenlane due to their system's reliability, high methane yields, and overall cost. Greenlane's experience in Europe and Asia, along with the team they have been able to put together in North America, helped convince us that Greenlane has the expertise to complete this project to our satisfaction and also support the plant during operation. We are pleased to have Greenlane as a partner for this project."
Sean Mezei, President of Greenlane North America said: "This project at Fair Oaks will be a significant milestone for renewable vehicle fuelling in the US. We are looking forward to replicating in the US our years of experience providing high quality vehicle fuel in Europe, Japan and other countries."
The biomethane CNG stations, provided by Clean Energy , are set to open in the second half of 2011 and will be open to the public. They will be conveniently located, one station near Fair Oaks Farms, the region's most popular agri-tourism attraction, adjacent to Interstate 65 in Fair Oaks, Indiana, and the second in southern Indiana close to the Kentucky border, also on Interstate 65.
Greenlane's process uses only water to upgrade biogas to natural gas pipeline grade or CNG vehicle fuel, making the system well suited to operate safely within a dairy operation. The quality of biomethane produced from a Greenlane system exceeds the gas quality standards required by the local gas utility, the Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO), and the CNG truck engine supplier. Greenlane's water scrubbing technology also minimizes its environmental impact by recycling its used water back into the system and minimizing the amount of energy required to upgrade the biogas.
Part of the Flotech Group of companies, Greenlane is the leading worldwide developer and supplier of technology for upgrading biogas and landfill gas to biomethane, for use in natural gas pipelines and as vehicle fuel. Greenlane has more than 20 years of global experience upgrading biogas, with installations in Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Spain and Sweden.
