Xebec Adsorption Inc. (TSXV:XBC) announced that it has commenced the operation of its first commercial landfill gas to CNG upgrading system in North Eastern China.
As quoted in the press release:

This landfill gas upgrading system is based on Xebec’s fast cycle pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology, assembled and integrated at Xebec’s Shanghai facility according to Chinese code and certification requirements.
The upgrading system is operating within a variable pressure envelope of 90 to 120 psig and dynamic feed flow parameters between 500 and 1300 m3/h. In addition, Xebec is deploying a kinetic adsorption process to continuously remove varying amounts of nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2), while maintaining corresponding recovery rates of 83 to 91%, and product gas purity levels of 94 to 98.6% methane (CH4). The high quality product gas will be used to power natural gas taxis that operate in the City of Anshan.

Peter Cheng, general manager of Xebec Adsorption, commented:

It has been extremely important for Xebec to establish this first reference operation in the landfill gas upgrading space. We can now demonstrate proven and reliable upgrading technology to potential Chinese customers. China is committed to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the coming decades and needs technologies like Xebec’s that can provide tangible reductions in GHG emissions. Upgraded landfill gas used as transportation fuel has the lowest GHG emission profile of any transportation fuel available today, beating out electrical and hydrogen vehicles. China has the potential to convert massive amounts of biogas and landfill gas into low carbon renewable natural gas which can then be utilized in a number of different applications, allowing China to move exponentially toward an ecologically sustainable society.
