A Surrey company specialising in products for gas cleaning, gas compression and hydrogen production has seen first delivery of its product simplifying waste transformation.
RE Hydrogen, formed in 2009 in Crainleigh, delivered its first biogas upgrading and refueller system to an Andover-based firm this week.
The system will be used in a project aimed at turning food waste into raw biogas, with the RE Hydrogen product converting the biogas into clean biomethane.
This will then be compressed up to 250bar, before being stored into a bank of gas cylinders for storage and refuelling of delivery vans by the end customer.
“This product is ultra-compact, containerised, comprising breakthrough technological innovation to unlock the vast potential of the biogas, sewage gas, landfill gas upgrading opportunities to produce clean biomethane for multiple applications like refuelling, energy storage and electricity generation” said Dr Amit Roy, CEO of RE Hydrogen.
The company says the system has the capability to produce enough biomethane to travel up to 425 miles per day by a Mercedes Sprinter van or similar types of vehicles, and can contribute to saving of £78,000 over three years by replacing diesel fuel at £1.35 per litre.
