Purification and liquefaction of biomethane or natural gas from 500 Nm3/h to several tens of thousands of Nm3/h
In order to be used as a fuel by long-haul trucks, methane must be delivered in liquid form at low pressure and very low temperature. The Cryo LNG solution enables to liquefy upgraded biomethane, grid gas or boil-off-gas with optimum efficiency for a range of micro-scale flowrates.
Production of LNG as an alternative to flaring gas at oil production sites
Adapted to the recovery of associated gas at small-scale oil wells, the Cryo Flare solution enables to eliminate flare gas and to create extra revenues by producing LNG (and LPG) which can be easily transported and sold to remote markets. It is an environment-friendly alternative to routine flaring of small gas quantities.
First Farm Scale Bio-LNG Plant in the World
Since a successful start in January 2018, the first commercial Cryo Pur unit has been continuously producing bio-LNG at the Greenville Energy site in Northern Ireland.
This confirms the success of the first plant in the world producing liquid biomethane on a farm. With a capacity of 3 tons per day of LNG (300 Nm3/h of raw biogas), the plant provides local industries with storable renewable energy coming from organic waste. In addition to its efficiency in producing bio-LNG even at small scale, the Cryo Pur technology also enables the production of liquid bio-CO2, which can be sold as industrial gas and thus increase the project’s profitability.

Norway’s market for liquefied biomethane (bio-LNG) is expanding, driven by a combination of government support and demand from the private sector. Bio-LNG produced from organic waste offers a renewable solution for fueling heavy transport such as busses, trucks and ships, and several Norwegian transport companies have committed to purchasing more bio-LNG in the future.
The plant will be able to produce up to 8 tons per day of fuel-grade bio-LNG and 10 tons per day of liquid CO2, with enough flexibility to follow a phased ramp-up and to feed gaseous biomethane into Renevo’s gas grid. Cryo Pur will also deliver the storage and transfer units for the cryogenic products.
