Methane removal: from waste to energy source

A good example of cooperation between water supply companies Vitens and Oasen in The Netherlands  with Logisticon Water Treatment is for the removal of methane from groundwater using membrane degassing. Logisticon Water Treatment first of all developed a membrane degassing pilot unit for Oasen in 2014 for research in Kamerik and later a larger unit for production location Rijerwaard. After proven results, Logisticon subsequently developed for Vitens a containerized pilot installation that can purify up to 120 m3 of water per hour and uses degassing membranes from 3M-Liqui-Cel®. After a test period in Noardbergum, the installation was recently connected to the raw water of production company Spannenberg, where the methane concentrations in the groundwater are highest.

The membrane degassing pilot unit demonstrates that methane is not a substance that must be disposed of as waste, but that the methane can be recovered and potentially used as an energy source.

Methane is a very powerful greenhouse gas and retains approx. 23-25 times more heat than the same amount of CO2.  Preventing methane of being released into the environment helps us to lower this influence of global warming.

Water purification contributes to savings on the required polymer


IAt the end of 2019, Logisticon Water Treatment started building a water treatment plant as part of an installation that produces large-scale polymer. The required polymer production water is pumped from the pump skid placed near the river through the water purification of Logisticon to the water buffers of the polymer production installation. The river water intake point consists of two pumps that can pump 200 m3 / h.
