Greenlane Biogas has partnered with China Agricultural University (CAU) to install a biogas upgrading system to facilitate research in the generation of renewable natural gas (RNG). CAU will use Greenlane’s water scrubbing based biogas upgrading solution to test and optimize biogas yields of various agricultural organic wastes generated from a variety of anaerobic digesters.
The plant, located at CAU’s National RNG Demonstration Park in Zhuozhou, a city just to the south of Beijing, will convert biogas to RNG at a rate of 80 cubic meters per hour. The resulting RNG is compliant with China’s standards for natural gas vehicles and is being piped to a CNG refueling station onsite to serve NGVs from neighboring towns.
“We are very excited to have installed a Greenlane Biogas plant at our National RNG Demonstration Park,” said Zhu Wanbin, the Deputy Professor at China Agricultural University. “Our objective is to demonstrate an effective process to manage agricultural waste by converting it into RNG and not burning it which contributes to air pollution.”
Brent Jaklin, Managing Director for Greenlane Biogas North America, also commented: “This is the first Greenlane Biogas upgrading plant in operation in China, which we see as a growing market for the biogas upgrading business. We are proud to be working with China Agricultural University to demonstrate how agricultural waste can have value as a clean source of energy.”
