Dependable propane supply on a large scale
Biomethane produced from anaerobic digestion cannot be introduced directly into the mains gas network in its raw state. As well as going through a water-wash system to remove impurities, its calorific value must be altered to bring it up to the required standard – which is achieved by injecting the biomethane with propane. As a leading provider of propane and a specialist in biomethane enrichment, GENeco appointed Flogas as the plant’s propane supplier.
Wayne Boakes, Renewable Energy Generation Manager at GENeco, says: “The success of the gas-to-grid process relies heavily on having a dependable propane supply. Due to the plant’s scale and the large volume of waste it treats, the quantities of propane required are significant. Flogas’ role is to supply us with all that propane, which enables us to alter the calorific value of our biomethane ready for injection into the grid.”
