Global biogas upgrading equipment specialist, DMT Environmental Technology, revealed at the UK AD and World Biogas Expo 2018 how its membrane technology has produced 8.8 billion cubic feet of renewable natural gas (RNG)–enough green gas to heat 227,000 homes and power thousands of vehicles worldwide. Furthermore, the firm announced the introduction of its first UK-based sales and service team. The new team will roll-out DMT’s successful collaborative-based project services to UK customers and help new developers easily access DMT’s high yielding upgrading technology.
Visitors to stand D601 learned how 30 international plant operators, including the UK’s first commercial RNG to pipeline facility which opened in 2012 at Poundbury, have benefited from DMT’s Carborex® MS membrane technology—a modular, containerised unit that has an uptime of 98 percent and upgrades biogas to methane concentrations of up to 99 percent.
Leading the new team, UK Business Director, Stephen McCulloch, proudly added, “Converting organic matter into renewable gas also brings considerable carbon savings. Focusing on efficiency and effectiveness, DMT’s worldwide projects have achieved savings in excess of 642,382 tons CO2 equivalent, equal to 0.14 percent of the UK’s total greenhouse gas emissions. This is the same as taking 20 percent of all buses in the UK off the road, or all fishing vessels in the UK off the seas and oceans.”
Commenting on the commitment DMT is showing to the UK AD industry, Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive of ADBA and one of the organisers of UK AD and World Biogas Expo 2018, said, “The new Renewable Heat Incentive tariffs are set to kickstart the second wave of biomethane plants in the UK. Having grown from 0 to 90 plants in the last five years, we expect this figure to grow further over the next few years, and it’s great to see DMT placing themselves at the heart of the UK’s biomethane sector.”
Outlining his plans for the UK team, McCulloch stated, “As well as expanding the UK market, we will be increasing the scope of our supply, including offering finance options. In addition, we have fine-tuned our offering and are issuing a five-year membrane guarantee on our Carborex® MS upgrading technology. With this improved strategy, we look forward to helping to take the already thriving UK biomethane sector to the next level – and to producing our next quarter of a billion cubic metres of green gas.”
UK AD and World Biogas Expo 2018 took place 11-12 July 2018 in NEC Birmingham, and is the world’s biggest gathering of biogas professionals.
