A co-generation energy facility was developed to utilize biogas from a poultry protein processing facility digester. Prior to gas utilization, the methane was simply flared.
MV Technologies provided a single-vessel solution to reduce the influent H2S concentration to below the desired 200 ppm requirement for the CHP equipment. MV Technologies partnered with a biogas conditioning and packaging firm to provide a turnkey solution for this client. The provided package conditions the digester gas (H2S and moisture removal) and compresses the gas for delivery to the cogen unit.
This agricultural digester facility, which produces 270 SCFM, utilized the activated carbon vessels (right side of photograph) for a period of 6-months to remove 2,000 ppm, accumulating more than $150,000 in operating costs for H2S removal alone.
MV Technologies provided a solution to replace an activated carbon system integrated with a CHP installation. A single-vessel system was integrated, utilizing 12’ diameter x 14’ tall vessel containing 1,344 ft3 of MV’s media. The system is designed to have a 270 day bed life with an approximate annual media expense of $35,000.
