Acrion Technologies Incorporated is a technology leader in landfill gas clean up and utilization. Using proprietary "green" CO2 Wash® Technology to clean landfill gas, Acrion's process converts landfill methane to medium BTU gas, electricity, pipeline gas, LNG or methanol, and enables recovery of liquid carbon dioxide.
NEWPORT BEACH, CA--Nov 26, 2013. Acrion's partner FirmGreen (Newport Beach, CA)(FGI) is pleased to announce that GVSA's Biogas Purification Plant has begun commercial sales of its biomethane production. The first batch of biogas was successfully delivered to Petrobrás, the customer, this Monday. Once the facility ramps up production to full capacity, it will treat 20,000 normal cubic meters per hour (nM3/hr) of raw landfill gas to produce 9,000 nM3/hr of fuel-grade biomethane gas.
Petrobras, the largest company in Latin America by market capitalization and revenue, will use the project’s clean biomethane to generate over 10% of the thermal energy needed to operate its Duque de Caxias Refinery. ..more
