AirScience shipped a gas incineration system to the University of Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke campus.

 

This gas incinerator will be used to neutralize through thermal oxidation the various
gas mixtures produced by the experiments produced in a laboratory furnace. The
particularities of this installation is the small gas flow to be treated and the variety of
the composition of the gases to be oxidized.
The system is planned to be
commissioned in August so that it can be operational for the 2019 fall session.

AirScience receives order for process gas desulfurization system.

 

AirScience was awarded an order for the supply of a process gas desulfurization system. The system based on the standard AirScience lead/lag process with activated carbon media will be followed by a polishing stage to achieve low hydrogen sulfide content in the ppm level. The lead/lag process allows one desulfurization tower (the lead) to capture most of the load, while the second tower (the lag) acts as polisher and safety when the lead tower reach break-through condition and need to have its media replaced. During the replacement of the media in the “lead” tower, the “lag” tower is now becoming the “lead” tower. Once the media is replaced in the tower which was previously “lead” it is brought back on-line in a “lag” position.

The third tower acting as a polishing stage to attain very low hydrogen sulfide content will need very infrequent media change which can be scheduled far in advance to correspond to general plant shut-down.

AirScience receives order for process gas emergency flare system.

 

AirScience was awarded an order for the supply of an enclosed flame emergency flare system to be installed in a waste valorization plant and treat process gas in plant upset condition. That flare system or gas incinerator is very similar in concept to emergency flare supplied to the Millar Western Forest Products company and to the Mc Commas Bluff landfill high BTU gas plant. These two large gas thermal oxidizers have been in operation for several years with large variations in operating conditions such as heat load for which they are designed. The flare system order awarded to AirScience this month will include the latest advance in control systems to allow the rapid start and stoppage of the unit when incineration service is required or no longer required. In normal operation, such system is dormant, to be only initiated when a plant upset occurs and the process gas cannot be passed through the normal process equipment.

AirScience receives order for large landfill gas desulfurization system.

 

AirScience was awarded an order for the supply of a landfill gas desulfurization system. The system based on the standard AirScience lead/lag process with activated carbon media, consists of two sets of two desulfurization towers, each set being inter connected by piping and valving to allow the operation in lead/lag mode. This system will remove hydrogen sulfide from the landfill gas to produce a gas with less than 2ppmv of hydrogen sulfide and a media life of six months. The specific desulfurization media used is commercially available in the USA and Canada and once used, can be removed from the tower by a vacuum truck with minimal labor requirement as compared to traditional iron based desulfurization media.

With the completion of this project AirScience will have more than 100,000 cfm of gas being desulfurized by its process worldwide.

AirScience receives order for large landfill gas Non Methane Hydrocarbons and Siloxanes removal system.

AirScience was awarded an order for the supply of a landfill gas NMOC and Siloxanes removal system based on AirScience Thermal Swing Adsorption (TSA) process. The TSA process is regenerative with a media life of five years plus. Out of the three towers, one is in adsorption mode, one is in desorption/regeneration mode and the third one is in cooling mode. Cycle time for this process is in the ten hours range.
This high pressure TSA system operates at around 250psig and uses CO2 separation membrane permeate gas as regeneration gas. Product gas at the outlet of the PSA
is virtually free of organic compounds and siloxanes so that the bio-methane (RNG)
will meet the most stringent quality requirements for organics and siloxanes after removal of CO2, Nitrogen and Oxygen in purification steps that occur downstream of this TSA system.

March 2018

AirScience Technologies receives excellent test results for gas desulfurization. On March 24, 2018, AirScience Technologies received the results of the test campaign for the desulfurization of its pyrolysis gas desulfurization system installed in 2017 at Ecolomondo pyrolysis facility in Contrecoeur, Quebec, Canada. The subject desulfurization system is the same technology as AirScience is using for the desulfurization of anaerobic digester biogas and landfill gas and has been in operation since early 2017. The desulfurization unit was first tested in March 2017 and AirScience reported that the level of hydrogen sulfide in the desulfurized gas was much lower than anticipated. The test campaign of March 2018 was to determine if any deterioration of performance had occurred during these twelve months of operation.

 

AirScience is proud to announce that the results of the 2018 test campaign are consistent with the results of 2017, showing no change in performance and desulfurization efficiency. The tests were performed by “Eurofins Essais Environnementaux Canada Inc.” and showed levels of less than 2 ppm of hydrogen sulfide after desulfurization, with average inlet hydrogen sulfide concentration of 6,100 ppm for a capture efficiency of 99.97%.

March 2018

AirScience Technologies is shipping its latest generation thermal swing adsorption system (TSA) for the capture of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and siloxanes from landfill gas. This TSA systems with three adsorption towers is a continuous operation unit with media regeneration through thermal desorption. The valve train skid shown on the picture below is pre-wired, pre-tested and shipped connected to its control panel for easy and rapid installation at the job site. The present system has a capacity of 1,000 standard cubic feet per minute and will produce gas with VOCs and siloxanes levels far below the pipeline gas quality requirements for such compounds.

January 2018

Gerard Magnin, President of AirScience Technologies is proud to announce that Arol Energy SAS of France and AirScience Technologies Inc. have signed a cooperation agreement that provides AirScience with the state of the art AE-Amine® developed by Arol Energy for the upgrading of anaerobic digestion biogas and landfill gas upgrading to bio-methane suitable for injection in the natural gas pipeline network as well as the EA-Siloxanes® process for the capture of VOCs and siloxanes.

 

The cooperation agreement provides Arol Energy with the reputed AirScience biogas upgrading technologies such as Ferrachel II® iron chelate biogas desulfurization process, Thermal Swing Adsorption (TSA) for the capture of VOCs and siloxanes, Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption (VPSA) for the capture of CO2 and Vacuum Swing Adsorption (VSA) for the recovery of methane from vent gases.

As of today, Arol Energy solvent based biogas upgrading technologies are available in North America through AirScience and AirScience products and technologies are available throughout Europe from Arol Energy.

October 2017

 

AirScience Technologies introduces the second generation of the “FERRACHEL II” biogas desulfurization system. This second generation iron chelate based biogas desulfurization system is a substantial improvement over the original AirScience Ferrachel I system.

 

The advancement include a new chemical formulation, an enhanced mass transfer approach whichreduces the number of towers and recirculating pumps and a rich liquor filtration system which is more efficient and has a much better reliability record.


At low pressure operation, the new process produces biogas desulfurization down to 5 ppm level from input levels as high as 2000 ppm. At higher pressure operation the system is capable of delivering a biogas with 1 ppm of hydrogen sulfide. This level of biogas desulfurization allows for the elimination of the requirement for an activated carbon polishing stage which is expensive in term of both operating pressure drop and media replacement.

The “FERRACHEL II” biogas desulfurization system can be used for gas flow from 1,000 to 25,000 scfm For more information on the AirScience “FERRACHEL II” desulfurization system email : info@airscience.net
