Xebec Announces another Biogas Upgrading Project in China

SHANGHAI, China, Jan. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - Xebec Adsorption Inc. (TSX: XBC) ("Xebec"), a provider of biogas upgrading, natural gas and hydrogen purification solutions for the clean energy market, announced today that it has signed a contract valued at RMB 7.1 million to provide a complete biogas upgrading plant to Heilongjiang Loonggas Investment Co., Ltd. in China. "The Chinese market represents a very important part of our corporate strategy because so many Chinese provinces, municipalities and waste companies are accelerating their adoption of 'Green' energy programs," said Kurt Sorschak, Xebec President and CEO. "This contract follows closely on the heels of a Memorandum of Understanding between Yinshang and Xebec covering the supply of 5 biogas upgrading plants over the next 24 months."

This new project will be engineered and manufactured in Xebec's Shanghai facility, and installed at an anaerobic digester site in Heilongjiang province where municipal organic waste will generate biogas which will be upgraded to biomethane for injection into the utility's natural gas pipeline grid and potential use as a transportation fuel. Xebec will provide the complete biogas upgrading plant, which features the newest version of its proprietary M-8100 rapid-cycle pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology.

"Our newest generation of adsorption technology gives us a substantial edge in market-leading performance metrics and is expected to help position our company as the leader in biogas upgrading solutions in China," Xebec Vice President of Asia Pacific Andrew Hall, said. "Our systems provide their own environmental benefits in that they are the lowest in power consumption and, because they use a dry process, they produce absolutely no environmental emissions. In addition, they offer significant practical benefits to our customers, as they are locally produced, fully compliant to Chinese code requirements, skid-mounted solutions that require minimal site setup, can be installed quickly and cost-effectively, and in operation, they provide both ease of control and fast dynamic response to changes in biogas feed conditions."

Commissioning and start-up of the upgrading plants is expected to take place in the fourth quarter of 2011.
