AAT & Hydroflux Pacific provide solutions, no matter from what source material you generate biogas.
The conversion of organic material into biogas is a convincing concept both from an economic and ecological perspective. Instead of disposing of materials at high costs or using other less lucrative recycling options, the material and energy is wholly utilised and fully converted into marketable products whilst reducing CO2 and Methane emissions.
There are a multitude of potential sources of feedstock for anaerobic digestion, such as:
- Dairy processors
- Food processors
- Pre-sorted municipal waste
- Water treatments plants
- Farm manure
AAT has designed and realised biogas facilities for over 150 different substrates where the gained biogas is converted into electricity and long-distance heating or prepared as bio-methane. The remaining digestate can also be converted into valuable fertilizer.
AAT plants have been operating internationally for many years, offering successful sludge digestion solutions to large-scale farms, waste disposal companies, and the food industry. AAT is a trusted partner that collaborates with Hydroflux Pacific to provide comprehensive treatment systems and plant equipment, including modular units like waste pre-treatment and pasteurization. With our combined expertise, we deliver competent solutions for efficient and effective waste management and treatment processes in the Pacific region
Hydroflux has partnered with Baur Folien GmbH based in Germany, a market leader and specialists in the selection, design, supply, manufacture, and installation of high-quality gas storage equipment to maximise the product reliability whilst reducing the project lifecycle costs.
Biogas storage systems are suitable for:
- Food Waste
- OFMSW AD (Organic Fraction of Municipal Solid Waste)
- Sewage gas for industrial WWTP
- Landfill gas
Gas Storage for Industry
Double membrane gas storage systems represent the cutting-edge technology in biogas storage. These systems are highly robust and durable, capable of storing variable amounts of gas while maintaining a constant pressure.
The outer layer of the system consists of a weather protection foil, which effectively shields the integrated inner gas storage foil from wind and rain. This protective barrier ensures the longevity of the gas storage membrane, enabling it to provide extended service life. The use of high-quality materials enhances chemical resistance and minimises diffusion rates, even under higher operating pressures.
Double membrane gas storage systems can be installed on various structures, including in-situ concrete, precast, or suitable steel tanks. The flexibility of the gas storage membrane allows it to adapt to the gas production levels. Additionally, the shape and colour of the gas storage covers can be customised to meet specific requirements and customer preferences.
Hydroflux can supply a range of biogas treatment systems that are engineered to maximise the recovery and utilisation of biogas and will typically comprise:
- Biogas Flares
- Biogas Blowers
- Biogas Chilling & Biogas Skids
- Biogas Scrubbing
The Hydroflux range of biogas flares is designed to safely burn off biogas generated from organic waste during anaerobic digestion processes when it is not being processed and used as an energy source. By utilising our flares, you can effectively manage and control biogas emissions while ensuring compliance with environmental regulations.
Each biogas flare in our range is equipped with a burner assembly, pilot flame, and flame arrestor. We prioritise quality and compliance with industry standards, ensuring that our flares meet the necessary safety and performance requirements. Our flares are specifically designed to handle varying volumes and compositions of biogas, providing efficient and reliable combustion for all industrial applications.
Biogas blowers, also known as gas blowers or biogas compressors, are devices specifically designed to handle the compression and movement of biogas. The primary function of biogas blowers is to increase the pressure of the biogas, allowing for its efficient transportation, storage, or utilisation. These blowers help overcome the natural low-pressure characteristics of biogas, enabling it to be effectively delivered to various downstream applications.
When selecting a biogas blower, it is essential to consider factors such as reliability, energy efficiency, and compatibility with the specific biogas composition. Hydroflux has access to a comprehensive range of blowers, including the specialised Himmel GVD Biogas blower, designed for operation with wet biogas.
Whether you need a blower for a small-scale biogas system or a larger industrial application, Hydroflux can provide the right solution. With a focus on reliability, energy efficiency, and compatibility with different biogas compositions.
Biogas Chilling (Moisture removal) and Biogas Skids (Moisture removal and gas pressure boosting)
Digester produced biogas is 100% water saturated and as it cools in the lines to the point of reuse, large amounts of water can condense in the piping system and the combustion device.
There are multiple benefits in drying biogas to a low dew point before combustion in a combined heat and power (CHP) engine or boiler. Hydroflux can incorporate the most suitable biogas cooling and collection system into the treatment process. These can be offered with or without compressors for gas pressure boosting.
Some of the benefits of working with Hydroflux to design and provide biogas chilling and moistrure removal systems include:
- Increased engine/boiler efficiency
- Prevention of corrosion/oil contamination
- Partial removal of impurities such as H2S, ammonia and siloxanes
- Complying with technical instruction of gas engine/boiler suppliers
Biogas Scrubbing (Desulphurisation)
Hydroflux specialises in providing top-quality scrubbers to enhance the purification and usability of biogas, ensuring compliance with industry standards and environmental regulations.
Our biogas scrubbers are designed to remove impurities and contaminants, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), moisture, siloxanes, and carbon dioxide (CO2), from biogas generated through anaerobic digestion. By employing advanced technologies and proven methodologies, we offer efficient and reliable solutions for upgrading biogas to a higher purity level.
Our team of experts will work closely with you to assess your biogas composition, determine the optimal scrubbing techniques, and customise a solution that fits your biogas plant setup. We offer a range of scrubbing methods, including biological desulfurisation, chemical scrubbing, adsorption, condensation, membrane separation, and more, ensuring we can deliver the most suitable and cost-effective solution for your needs.
Our scrubbers are manufactured using high-quality materials and adhere to stringent industry standards, ensuring long-lasting performance and minimal maintenance requirements.
