Xebec Adsorption Inc. (Xebec), a global provider of gas generation, purification and filtration solutions for the industrial, energy and renewables marketplace, has announced that it has received orders for CAN$2.6 million for multiple purification systems. Orders originate from Taiwan, France and Canada, all to be delivered in 2017.

The first project involves a French refinery customer who wants to purify an unused hydrogen off-gas stream for delivery to a 1 MW proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell for the production of zero-emission electricity to a utility grid. PEM fuel cells are very sensitive to impurities so Xebec will purify the stream using their H-3200 hydrogen purification system to produce 99.99% high purity hydrogen.

The second hydrogen purification project, located in Taiwan, involves an industrial customer who wants on-site generation of hydrogen through a steam methane reformer (SMR). The purified stream will be used in various industrial applications. Xebec will provide one of its super-compact, fast cycle hydrogen purifiers to deliver 99.999% ultra-pure hydrogen.

Two other projects are converting biogas to renewable natural gas. One project is located in France and the other in Canada. Xebec will provide core pressure swing adsorption (PSA) purification and pre-treatment technology so that the clients can monetise their respective biogas streams.

"We are proud to have been chosen as the clean tech provider for these innovative hydrogen and renewable natural gas projects," said Kurt Sorschak, President and CEO of Xebec Adsorption Inc. "It's gratifying to see more and more companies discovering Xebec's truly unique offering - compact, fast cycle PSA purification systems that offer significant cost savings, while delivering outstanding performance and durability.
