The biogas station launched in 2017 in Rivne landfill. The facility`s capacity is 0.5 MW.
The project has a big social impact since it prevents wildfires.
The station annually extracts 3-4 million cubic meters of gas, with which it produces over 4 million kWh.
The technology of electricity production from biogas at Rivne station.
- BIOGAS COLLECTION
The wells are evenly distributed over the entire area of the solid waste landfill. An individual biogas pipeline extends from each well to the gas collection points. Then biogas is transported from gas collection points through intermediate gas pipelines to a special site with technological equipment.
- BIOGAS PURIFICATION
A compressor station is located on a special site where biogas is subject to purification.
- ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION
Biogas goes from the compressor station to a candle for combustion or to a cogeneration unit for electricity production.
- ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION TO THE NETWORK
The electricity produced through the transformer and the power line is transmitted to the general grid.
