Biorem receives first orders for its biogas sweetening systems

Clean technology company Biorem has received two orders for biogas sweetening systems in North America. The sweetening systems will use Biorem's biological technologies to remove high levels of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) from raw biogas, which the company says will enhance its value for use in renewable energy generation.


One of the systems will purify biogas captured from a landfill site while the other will purify biogas generated from the anaerobic digesters of a municipal wastewater treatment facility. Biorem says the biogas sweetening systems will be installed and operating this year.


“These orders highlight the progress of Biorem's expansion into the renewable energy market and showcase the potential for our proprietary biological-based systems to significantly enhance biogas recovery,” said Peter Bruijns, Biorem’s president and CEO. “While biogas can be generated from a variety of sources, it often contains impurities which must be removed. Using energy intensive solutions or chemical processes to purify biogas counteracts the value of biogas as a renewable energy source. As such we expect our low-energy biologically-based systems will become recognized as an essential and economical component in biogas generation.”
