Greenlane Biogas has received an order for a ‘Rimu’ biogas upgrading plant from Sifang Leo Livestock Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (SF LEO), a 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 meters per hour to produce biomethane for vehicles.
“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, CEO 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.”
