‘De Groote Lucht’ WWTP inaugurate new biomethane unit

In Vlaardingen, the Netherlands, Delfland Water Authority – one of the 21 Dutch water boards – has officially inaugurated a new biogas upgrading unit at its ‘De Groote Lucht’ wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Producing 1.8 million Nm3 of biogas annually from sewage sludge, this will now be upgraded to 1 million Nm3 biomethane and fed into the national gas grid.

On May 17, Delfland Water Authority inaugurated a new biogas-to-biomethane upgrading system from Bright Biomethane at its ‘De Groote Lucht’ wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Vlaardingen (photo courtesy Bright Biomethane).

The biomethane plant was engineered and supplied by Bright Biomethane, a subsidiary of Netherlands-based bioenergy energy technology providers HoSt. The entire biogas upgrading system is placed in a compact 40 ft container and has a capacity to upgrade 350 Nm3 per hour of ingoing biogas using proven membrane technology.
