Multinational gas and diesel-fuelled engine-based power plant specialists Clarke Energy, a Kohler Company, is expanding its product offering to include biogas upgrading plants supplied by Techno Project Industriale S.r.l (TPI) part of SIAD Group, a leading Italian chemical group specializing in industrial gases, engineering, healthcare, services, and industrial goods. TPI provides both membrane-based and amine technology and has appointed Clarke Energy as a distributor and service provider.
Biogas upgrading technology strips the carbon dioxide (CO2) out of biogas to create biomethane, also known as renewable natural gas (RNG). The resultant biomethane can be injected into the national gas grid or used as a sustainable fuel for vehicles.
The TPI product range is of high quality and engineering, developed out of their extensive experience in the handling and processing of gases for industrial customers across the world. TPI has built many biogas upgrading projects globally and is one of the key technology providers to the sector.
This partnership is strategic for Clarke Energy for the development of its biomethane activity and the choice of TPI is crucial for the product and service quality of Clarke Energy’s solutions, said Didier Lartigue, the Managing Director of the French subsidiary of Clarke Energy.
Clarke Energy has already sold several biogas upgrading systems in France with TPIs upgrading technology incorporated into recent projects. While the agreement initially focuses on France, Clarke Energy is also able to supply TPI’s biogas upgrading plants into the United Kingdom, United States of America, India, and Ireland.
