(TSX: XBC) ("Xebec"), a provider of biogas upgrading, natural gas, field gas and hydrogen purification and filtration solutions for the clean energy and crude-derived fuels displacement markets, announced today that it has commissioned the first biogas to renewable hydrogen purification system in Europe. This system was started up on January 17th, 2014 by ex-French Industry Minister Arnaud Montebourg.
The system is part of a hydrogen pilot project executed by Xebec's local partner company Verdemobil S.A. The plant is located at the Trifyl landfill site in Tarn, France. Syndicat Trifyl is a large domestic waste treatment facility near Toulouse, France. The biogas is first purified to renewable natural gas by a biogas upgrading plant which is utilizing Xebec's advanced PSA technology to separate methane from CO2. After the biogas cleanup, the renewable gas is fed into a methane reformer which produces the renewable hydrogen.. A Xebec hydrogen purification PSA, installed after the reformer upgrades the raw hydrogen to 99,999% pure hydrogen. The trials will last until the summer of 2014. If conclusive, Trifyl will use the hydrogen in fuel cells for mobile or stationary applications.
