Sysadvance – Methagen AD

Biogas Upgrading From Anaerobic Digestion

About the Company:

Sysadvance started its activities in 2002, as a spin-off company from a university R&D laboratory with over 40 years’ experience in gas separation technology.

Today they develop and manufacture on-site gas generation and gas purifiers, as well as integrated solutions for compressed air and technical gases.

Sysadvance’s product portfolio is comprised of Nitrogen Generators, Oxygen Generators, including Medical Oxygen 93 and VSA Oxygen Generators, solutions for purification of biogas, Helium, Hydrogen, as well as a wide range of “turn-key” customized engineered solutions.

About the Solution:

Methagen AD is a system, based on VPSA (Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption) technology designed to purify biogas from Anaerobic Digestion feedstock like:

  • Wastewater treatment plants
  • Food and organic municipal waste
  • Agricultural waste

    The Methaboost option is a post-treatment stage based on Vaccum Swing Adsorption (VSA) technology enabling the recovery of residual methane from the off-gas stream of the Methagen process.

    Methaboost is an efficient alternative to expensive catalytic oxidation systems, RTO (Regenerative Thermo Oxidation) or low PCI boilers.

    Methaboost enables near 100% recovery, zero methane loss/emission and pure CO2 production.

    Methaboost is specially recommended for CO2 inertization of batch digesters.

    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

    Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

    Sysadvance has recently been added to the Newtrient catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with Sysadvance to further refine the cost and performance information on their solution. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
