Greenville Energy to build bio-LNG plant

Greenville Energy based in Northern Ireland started a project at the end of June to set up the country’s first bio-LNG plant.

The company has been producing biogas from waste from the family’s dairy farm, Greenville Dairies, and waste from food manufacturers and food retailers and now its excess biogas production will be transformed into liquefied biomethane, also referred to as bio-LNG.

According to the company’s statement, to implement the project it has selected Cryo Pur, an equipment supplier based in Palaiseau, France, with support from Fast Technologies from Northern Ireland.

Cryo Pur will deliver the design, the assembly, the installation and the commissioning of the bio-LNG plant in first quarter 2017.

The facility will have the capacity to produce three tons of bio-LNG per day or 10 GWh per year of storable and transportable renewable energy.
