Tecniplas, a Brazilian leader in the production of tanks and special equipment made of FRP composites, has finished the production of a scrubber for the treatment of biogas. Provided to Canadian Greenlane, the equipment will be installed in a landfill located in São Paulo, Brazil, and will be part of an energy generation station.

With a diameter of 1.8m, a height of 13.8m and a total capacity of 35,000m³, the scrubber manufactured by Tecniplas is the first made of composites to be acquired by Greenlane worldwide. For this type of application, the company used to specify only high-quality metallic alloys, as 316L stainless steel.

“We verified both the full suitability of the material for the application and the extensive experience of our engineering department in the development of complex solutions involving composites. This way, the customer did not have to import the equipment, which directly influenced the cost of the project,” said Luís Gustavo Rossi, director of Tecniplas.

The scrubber will have the function of removing the impurities from the biogas – it is formed mainly by methane – from the decomposition of the waste. Pure gas then becomes ideal for combustion and environmentally friendly power generation.

Founded in 1976, Tecniplas is a Brazilian leader in the production of tanks and special equipment made of FRP composites. Its products are used in the following industries: ethanol and sugar, pulp and paper, chlor-alkali, chemicals and petrochemicals, fertilisers, food and beverage and basic sanitation.
