A unique project with the use of MWM TCG 2020 gas engine powered with biogas based on raw glycerin

A unique project with the use of MWM TCG 2020 gas engine was set up at Croda, a chemical plant in Gauda city, the Netherlands.

Croda specializes in manufacture of various raw materials for technical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications. The production yields glycerin as a waste product. Interacting with water the glycerin enables to generate high-quality biogas. MWM power plant uses it for energy and heat generation.

MWM TCG 2020 gas-gen set has been in operation since October 2016 and already reaches 100 percent of the overall capacity installed. Power and heat energy is used for the plant’s needs as well as for regular production processes. For example, the exhaust heat of the combined heat and power plant is applied to heat the oil and fat storage units. The cogeneration unit reduces energy costs and significantly decreases carbon emissions.

Thanks to the high conversion rate of glycerin, the methane content of the biogas is 58 percent. Natural gas is still added to the biogas in order to ensure a stable biogas mixture. But MWM TCG 2020 gas engine has advantages – power and heat energy generation and carbon emissions reduction.
