AP2E supplies ProCeas® analyzers to Waga Energy

Used for measurements during landfill gas purification processes


The French green energy company Waga Energy relies on the AP2E system ProCeas® in the 19" rack version.

Waga Energy operates ten inovative landfill gas purification units in France, on landfill sites owned by major waste management companies such as Suez and Veolia or local authorities. Called WAGABOX®, this units upgrade landfill gas into grid-compliant biomethane, that substitue fossil natural gas.

A single ProCeas® system is installed for each of the ten WAGABOX® units. They are used - thanks to a multiplexing unit - to measure CH4, CO2, H2S, H2O, O2 at various stages of the purification process.

In addition to the long-standing and good cooperation between Waga Energy and AP2E, successful tests of the units and certain product features were important factors for the renewed cooperation. Among the most important criteria in the selection of the system were a very fast response time, high sensitivity and repeatability.

The ProCeas® biogas analyzers specifically impress with the following features:

•    Measurement quality. The laser measurement technology implies limited cross-interference and good repeatability as well as low detection limits.
•    Multi-gas analysis. One analyzer can monitor several gases, even in the ppb range.
•    Low maintenance costs: Due to the marginal drift over a lengthy period of time no regular calibration is required.
•    Fast response time and limited sample quantity due to the patented low pressure sampling and the small volume of the measuring cell

Waga Energy, based in Meylan near Grenoble, funds, builds, owns and operates the WAGABOX® units through long-term contracts with landfill owners for landfill gas purchasing, and generates revenue by selling biomethane to gas utilities. The WAGABOX® units already supply 35.000 households in France, saving 45.000 tons of CO2 per year.
