Hollow Fibers System Certified as Partners Sought for Commercialization
Air Products reports certification of its Prism brand hollow-fibers membrane system for helping separate the components of raw biogas to produce high-purity biomethane.
Air Products’ Prism Membranes unit in St. Louis has received PED/pressure equipment directive certification from DNV GL Business Assurance Italia.
“This certification confirms that our biogas separation product meets the European standards for design, manufacture and safe operation of pressurized equipment,” biogas business manager Greg Malcolm said in a release. “This certification builds on our commitment to the European biogas market.”
The Air Products biogas separators contain polymeric hollow fibers that apply selective permeation to separate biogas into two enriched streams of biomethane and carbon dioxide. They are manufactured in St Louis.
“We do not build the membrane systems at this time,” says sales and marketing manager Allie Douglass.
“We are looking for partners,” she told F&F, “who can incorporate the membrane upgrading system with what they provide…
“We focus our efforts on making the membrane the best one that there is on the market, and we leave the system engineering up to our partners.”
