Bus Fleet Will Use Compressed Natural Gas Derived From Waste-To-Energy Project


Xebec Adsorption Inc. has been awarded a $2.2 million contract to supply a biogas upgrading plant for a waste-to-energy project managed by Potlatch Inc. in South Korea.

The facility will upgrade biogas generated from the digestion of food waste, producing renewable compressed natural gas (CNG) that will be used as vehicle fuel for a municipal bus fleet.

‘Given the high price of natural gas in Korea, many municipalities and private project developers are focusing on the generation of renewable gas and CNG fuel from food waste,’ says Andrew Hall, vice president of Asia Pacific operations for Xebec.

The plant – Xebec's second in Korea – is expected to be operational by the end of this year.
