EcoVapor – Zer02
Renewable Natural Gas (biogas) Deoxo Purification System
About the Company:
EcoVapor is dedicated to helping producers of Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) achieve environmental and economic goals with innovative technology.
Originally developed to help oil and gas producers improve environmental performance while generating additional profits, EcoVapor units are working today to purify natural gas production streams in every major oil-producing region in America to eliminate routine flaring and minimize emissions while maximizing productivity and profits. Now, they are taking their proven gas purification technology to the RNG/Biogas market.
In practice EcoVapor’s scalable yet flexible purification products are an effective solution for bringing biomethane to market.
Since 2010 EcoVapor has been stiving to achieve these goals while adhering to their guiding principles of integrity, efficiency, innovation, and positive environmental impact.
About the Solution:
The composition of biogas varies widely, but typically includes methane, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), water vapor, and oxygen. Hydrogen sulfide and oxygen create corrosion and safety hazards to infrastructure, including natural gas pipelines. To sell biogas as renewable natural gas (RNG), it must be purified to meet pipeline specifications by removing water, H2S and oxygen.
EcoVapor has designed a comprehensive biogas upgrading system for treating H2S, oxygen and water, so that your produced gas can be sold as high-value RNG.
The ZerO2 vapor recovery system allows you to upgrade biogas to high-value RNG and sell it by removing oxygen from the gas stream to meet pipeline specification requirements.
Advantages of the Zer02 include:
ZerO2 units are available in a range of sizes that are straightforward to swap out. Modular design allows you to scale up or down, as your production volumes change.
Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
Anaerobic Digester Associated Technology:
NOTE: There are several technology types that are used as part of an integrated manure management system that includes an anaerobic digester and are not applicable to manure management in other cases. The impact of these technologies on the critical indicators are represented as those of an entire anaerobic digester system.
- Long usable life and can be run reliably
- Creates energy and generates environmental credits
- Requires proper preparation of the feedstock
- Requires other technologies for energy utilization
- Requires other technologies for digestate handling
- Proper feeding & system monitoring is required to avoid system downtime
- Proven technology for odor control, GHG reduction and pathogen reduction
EcoVapor has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with EcoVapor to further refine the cost and performance information on their solutions. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
