Bowman Power’s (Bowman) Head of Performance, Keith Douglas, gave an overview of their ground-breaking Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) Technology at the World Biogas eFestival 2020.
Organised by the World Biogas Association, the online four-day event took a look at the technologies and ideas that are revitalising the global biogas industry. This tied into their ambitious goals to help lead the charge in achieving a 12% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from biogas by 2030.
Keith presented Bowman’s work for a combined heat and power plant running on biogas, in Germany. At the site, Bowman fitted their ETC system to a Jenbacher J312 genset, where they achieved 5.7% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Bowman’s CEO, Paul Dowman-Tucker, commented on the event. “We are incredibly proud to have spoken at the World Biogas eFestival to showcase our strategy for reducing biogas fuel use and emissions. With greenhouse gas reductions of >18% achieved on recent projects, our ETC technology represents a fantastic opportunity to exceed the 12% target.”
