Datum Compressors Pegged For Biofuels Plant

Abengoa, a Spanish EPC contractor, chose Siemens to supply a compressor train for Fulcrum BioEnergy’s Sierra BioFuels plant, which will use gasification technology to produce low-carbon fuels from municipal solid waste. The plant will take in the solid waste – normally allocated to landfills – and covert it into biofuel, a process that will reduce carbon emissions by more than 80%, according to Siemens.

Located on the outskirts of Reno, Nevada in Storey County, the plant can produce 11 million gpy (41,639,530 L/yr) of biofuel for the aviation industry. It will use multiple Datum compressors to compress synthesis gas at high pressures.

Siemens scope of supply includes a steam turbine, three synthesis gas Dresser-Rand Datum compressors and a variety of plant equipment (coolers, filters and valves). The equipment is expected to ship to Fulcrum’s plant in mid-2019.
