Dim Water has supplied Finning, a company belonging to the powerful industrial group Caterpillar, with a Biogas Cleaning unit for the landfill (landfill) in Lepanto, very close to the capital of Santiago de Chile. This is a process necessary to transform the biogas generated in a landfill into a biofuel suitable for combustion engines, which allows to take advantage of energy resources and to maintain the care for the environment.
This technological solution stands out because it is fully integrated in a 40-foot container, which allows it to be easily transportable by sea shipping. One of its characteristics is that, to increase safety, the electrical control part and the treatment equipment are separated. It guarantees a treatment capacity of 1,000 Nm³/h, which will generate 2 MW/h of electrical power.
