Waga Energy will supply three cryogenic distillation modules to Air Liquide for the North American market
MEYLAN, FRANCE / ACCESSWIRE / February 4, 2022 / Waga Energy will supply Air Liquide with three cryogenic distillation modules for two renewable natural gas (RNG) production plants currently under construction in the United States. Cryogenic distillation modules, manufactured as standard components by Waga Energy for its WAGABOX(R) landfill gas upgrading units, separate methane from oxygen and nitrogen.
Air Liquide, world leader in gases, technologies and services for industry and health, has ordered three cryogenic distillation modules from Waga Energy for two RNG production plants under construction on landfill sites in the United States. The cryogenic distillation modules, which incorporate patented WagaEnergy technology, will be connected to membrane filtration units manufactured by Air Liquide.
Waga Energy delivered the first of three cryogenic distillation modules to Air Liquide in September 2021 for an RNG production plant under construction at the Mallard Ridge Landfill site in Delavan, Wisconsin. It will start producing GNR by the second quarter of 2022. The other two cryogenic modules will equip an AirLiquide GNR production plant under construction at the Winnebago Landfill site in Illinois.
Waga Energy, a company specializing in the production of RNG from landfill gas, has standardized the manufacture of cryogenic distillation modules for its patented WAGABOX(R) technology. The result of ten years of R&D, WAGABOX(R) technology combines membrane filtration and cryogenic distillation to produce grid-compliant RNG from landfill gas, regardless of the oxygen and nitrogen levels in the gas raw.
Waga Energy has commissioned eleven WAGABOX(R) units in France and eleven more are under construction in France, Spain, Canada and the United States. The cryogenic distillation modules that WagaEnergy supplies to Air Liquide are the same as those used in the large capacity WAGABOX(R) units currently under construction at a landfill operated by Veolia in Claye-Souilly, France, and at the landfill of Enercycle in Saint-Étienne-des-Grès, Quebec, Canada.
Mathieu Lefebvre, CEO and co-founder of Waga Energy, said: “We are delighted to support the development of RNG with Air Liquide. An effective alternative to natural gas of fossil origin, RNG can contribute to the transition of our energy systems towards greater sustainability. relationship with Air Liquide. The Group has been at our side since the creation of Waga Energy in 2015 and is our main shareholder through its venture capital subsidiary ALIAD.”
About Waga Energy
Waga energy INWAGA produces competitively priced renewable natural gas (also known as “biomethane”) by upgrading landfill gas using a patented purification technology called WAGABOX(R). The GNR produced is injected directly into the gas distribution networks that supply individuals and businesses, replacing natural gas. Waga Energy finances, constructs and operates its WAGABOX(R) units under long-term contracts with landfill operators for the supply of raw gas, and generates revenue by selling the RNG it has generated. Waga Energy operates 11 WAGABOX(R) units in France, representing an installed capacity of 240 GWh/year. Eleven units are under construction in France, Spain and Canada. Each project initiated by Waga Energy contributes to the fight against global warming and to the energy transition. Waga Energy has been listed since October 27, 2021 on Euronext Paris. waga-energy.com
