Wartsila to supply tech for UK biogas project
Wartsila on March 14 said it will supply a biogas upgrading solution to Transwaste, a UK-based waste management and environmental services company.
The plant, near Hull in the north of England, will produce biogas from municipal waste and will inject up to 6mn m3/year of biomethane into the national gas grid. The delivery of the plant is scheduled for December 2023.
This will be a dry anaerobic digestion plant capable of handling organic matter with a consistency of approximately 20 to 40% dry matter. Conventional wet digestion plants can handle a maximum of 20% dry matter.
Since the raw biogas for this project is expected to contain higher than normal volatile organic compounds (VOC) levels, the Wartsila solution will include a flash tank to flash out the VOCs and ensure long amine life.
Melton Energy Tech has been established to execute the project which is being managed by Paul Winter Consulting, a project management and construction consultancy business.
