Ad-hoc solutions 

Thanks to our knowledge of the product and the market we are able to provide ad-hoc solutions. We analyze the needs of each project and develop a unique solution for each case.

Laboratory Service

At BION we have our own fully equipped laboratory where we research, develop and analyse our own products and provide a totally personalised technical service. Among the services provided:

Corrosion Control

 

The analysis of the BION's corrosion coupons allows a detailed report on air quality, identify and classify the pollutants present in the environment being analyzed.

Analysis of the remaining life of the average

Through our technology, the remaining life of the average sample received is analyzed and determined, allowing us to establish the right moment for its change.

Environmental analysis

 

After taking gas samples in any environment with our portable equipment, a diagnostic report of the environmental conditions is made, ensuring the most appropriate solution in each case.

Protect your biogas installations and reduce the maintenance costs

The conversion of biogas into green energy is not only environmentally friendly, but also contributes to the optimization of natural resources. More and more industries have biogas stations to take advantage of waste generated in these facilities, contributing to generate a circular economy where all available resources are exploited.   Biogas plants need to remove impurities before it is diverted to its final use (upgrading or cogeneration engines). In the case of upgrading, the need for purification is high due to the strict conditions required for methane purity.   The BION media ensures an effective removal of impurities at 99.5% efficiency.   BION medias: Protect and maintain the compressor by preventing the occurrence of corrosive atmosphere inside the compressor. Protect the membranes against fouling or pore blockage. Have very high adsorption capacity They are specially designed to give high performance in environments with low oxygen levels. Protect and maintain the installations   This becomes to reduced operating and maintenance costs and increased sorbent or adsorbent lifetime.   BION biogas purification solutions are the best return on investment because they They remove pollutant gases before they cause irreversible damage to membranes, compressors or cogeneration equipment. Enables compliance with biomethane grid injection input requirements Extends the lifetime of the pretreatment stage by reducing operating costs Avoid downtime by preventing costly unexpected repairs Eliminate ALL common contaminants other than H2S.

Biogas purification at Mapocho WWTP

Biogas is a mixture of gases, the main components of which are methane and carbon dioxide, produced as a result of the fermentation of organic matter in the absence of air by the action of a microbial consortium (anaerobic digestion).   The composition of the biogas depends entirely on the nature of the waste used and the conditions under which anaerobic digestion is carried out. Generally, the biogas is used for energy recovery, which is determined by the methane concentration. However, a purification of certain contaminants with abrasive and corrosive character, such as siloxanes and H2S, is necessary to ensure a correct operation of the cogeneration engines.   The Mapocho-Trebal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), located in Santiago de Chile, treats 30% of the town's water and is a benchmark facility. The facility uses biogas energy by means of three cogeneration engines, each with a power of 1,000 kW. Normally two of these are in operation, while the third is reserved for maintenance stops.   The strict legislation of the trans-Andean country regarding emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides, and the need to obtain an effluent free of mainly siloxanes and H2S for a correct use of the purified biogas, led those responsible for the WWTP to contact BION. Our technical department studied the case in depth and proposed to implement a competitive alternative both in economic and technical terms.   Plant data   The biogas purification system consists of two parallel analogous lines composed of three filters in series. Biogas flow rate: 3600 m3/h. H2S concentration: H2S concentrations, due to biogas pre-treatment, range from 40 to 60 ppmv. In specific cases where the pre-treatment does not work properly, peaks of up to 500 ppmv have been measured. The objective is to reduce these values to concentrations below 1 ppmv. Siloxanes: An exhaustive characterization of the siloxanes present in the biogas stream revealed significant concentrations of cyclic siloxanes type D3, D4 and D5 among others. Values of up to 10 mg/m3 were measured for the D5 type.  Others: in addition to the compounds, significant concentrations of mercaptans, cycloalkanes, chlorinated compounds and aromatic hydrocarbons were measured. Solution   After a thorough characterization of the biogas to be treated and an assessment of the working conditions, the solution proposed by BION was as follows:   High quality Active Carbon for the removal of high molecular weight VOCs and siloxanes. High quality Bion KOH to improve the removal of H2S, certain VOCs and mercaptans. The solution proposed by BIOCONSERVACION was successful, generating biogas with H2S levels below 1 ppm.   BION's collaboration continues once the solution has been implemented and the results have been verified, since it has the possibility of carrying out an analysis of the condition of the socks prior to their replacement. By evaluating the remaining capacity of the media, it is able to optimize the process to achieve maximum utilization of the potential of each installation.

Biogas Desulfurization - WWTP Chania

Bioconservacion, together with the Greek engineering company DIMTECH, is carrying out a biogas desulfurization project that aims to promote the use of energy from sludge digestion at the Chania WWTP, a wastewater treatment plant in a semi-arid area of the island of Crete, located near residential areas. The plant will be commissioned soon and will use BION Fe filter media as the active material for the main biogas desulfurization equipment. For biogas desulfurization, the Chania WWTP managers carried out a screening of the different alternatives available on the market and finally contacted Bioconservacion. The good results obtained in other similar facilities in countries such as Portugal or England with BION-Fe, led the WWTP managers to choose Bioconservacion.  There are many advantages to working with BION-Fe, both technically and economically, including the following: High H2S adsorption capacity: 45% by weight (in 10 cycles). Low load loss in the equipment due to its pelletized format compared to other media such as iron filings or granular materials. No minimum O2 level required. Moderate amounts of volatile organic compounds and CO2 do not affect the optimum performance of the product. Easy regeneration with ambient air. Thus, Bioconservacion/DIMTECH made a proposal for a biogas treatment system using two parallel lines with two fiberglass reactors with a capacity of 4,500 kg of BION Fe.  This configuration allows biogas purification without the need to interrupt the process at any time, achieving the maximum possible energy utilization.  In order to guarantee the results, an exhaustive monitoring of the results of the purification system will be carried out during the first 5 cycles of operation. After 6 months, an in-situ check of the efficiency of the treatment and an overall evaluation of the process and its optimization, if necessary, will be carried out. A close collaboration between all the participating companies makes possible the exchange of information and an exhaustive follow-up of results, thus assuring an excellent advice and an agile resolution of incidences in case of occurrence.
