Capstone Green Energy Corp. has signed a deal with E-Finity Distributed Generation for a biogas-fueled Capstone C600 Signature Series microturbine.
The Van Nuys-based manufacturer said the microturbine would be commissioned later this year.
Darren Jamison, chief executive of Capstone, said the company has seen an interest in its microturbines from biogas installations around the world.
He also said the company is pleased with new network partner Alfa Laval Corporate AB, a Swedish supplier of products and solutions for heat transfer, separation and fluid heating.
“Customers are seeking out these innovative energy solutions because they help manage costs, reduce emissions and support predictable operations,” Jamison said in a statement.
The waste heat from the C600S microturbine will be channeled into an Alfa Laval Micro heat exchanger and will heat thermal oil way to produce the biogas, all while providing the highest system efficiency possible.
“This biogas system is part of a new approach to transforming manure into energy, eliminating site odor, pollution and emissions while reducing energy demand needed for the process,” Jeff Beiter, chief executive of E-Finity, said in a statement.
