Greenlane Biogas Secures Order for Biogas Upgrading Plant from Sifang Leo Livestock Science and Technology

Burnaby, BC – Greenlane Biogas has received an order for a ‘Rimu’ biogas upgrading plant from Sifang Leo Livestock Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (SF LEO), a leading dairy farm engineering company and manufacturer of high-tech livestock equipment and farm machinery in China. Greenlane’s water scrubbing based biogas upgrading plant will be used in an eco-dairy farm demonstration operation to convert organic waste into renewable natural gas (RNG).

The dairy farm being used for the demonstration operation is located at SF LEO’s 300 acre Shahe Agricultural Park in Dingzhou, China, a city in the Southwest of Hebei province. Digesters will be fed cow manure and crop straw to generate biogas. The ‘Rimu’ plant will upgrade the biogas at a rate between 250 and 800 cubic metres per hour to produce compressed natural gas (CNG) to fuel natural gas vehicles (NGV).

This will be the first venture in RNG production for SF LEO, which has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Hebei provincial government to develop 30 agricultural waste to RNG projects over the next five years.

“We chose the ‘Rimu’ after a thorough evaluation of Greenlane’s biogas upgrading solution and site visits to projects utilizing their systems in both North America and Europe,” said Chaoyang Hu, Chief Executive Officer for SF LEO. “This eco-dairy farm demonstration will allow us to turn waste into wealth and increase the sustainability of dairy farming in China.”

Brent Jaklin, Managing Director for Greenlane Biogas North America added, “We are continuing to see great interest from China for biogas upgrading solutions to effectively manage agricultural waste while developing a clean source of energy. The commitment from Sifang Leo Livestock Science and Technology to this project and the 30 future RNG projects only underscores this.”

Greenlane Biogas offers upgrading systems in five standard modular units to produce RNG of the highest quality. These units can be combined to meet greater capacity requirements. Based on an environmentally friendly process that uses water and no chemicals to remove impurities from biogas, the high efficiency upgrading system produces RNG with purity greater than 98%.
