Xebec partners with Sapio Group in biogas plant agreement


Xebec Adsorption Inc, the global provider of gas purification solutions for the industrial, energy and renewables marketplace, has signed an exclusive Market Development and Commercialisation Agreement with Sapio Group.

Sapio Group is the largest industrial gas company in Italy. It’s business model includes the production and distribution of bio-liquefied natural gas (bio-LNG) throughout Italy. After an extensive supplier evaluation process, Sapio chose Xebec as its biogas upgrading partner for bio-LNG facilities to be built by Sapio. The expectation of both parties is that 30 to 40 bio-LNG facilities will be built over the next 3 to 5 years. Xebec will provide the biogas upgrading units, including CO2 reduction module, that will lower the CO2 content in the product gas down to 50 ppm, allowing for on-site liquefaction of the renewable natural gas and conversion into bio-LNG.
