Aboitiz Equity Ventures and its technical partner, Gazasia, Ltd UK, have created a Joint Venture, Aseagas Corp., to invest in an
initial 9000 tpa biogas liquefaction plant in the Batangas Province of the Philippines. The plant will use sugar cane in distillery to produce effluents that will generate raw biogas. The biomethane will be used as a fuel for both buses and trucks.
Aseagas aims to establish a portfolio of plants in the Philippines and South East Asia.
The liquefaction system has been ordered from Cryostar. This Cryostar designed system is skid mounted for quick installation and easy operation. It contains proprietary Cryostar turbomachinery.
Cryostar offers small scale natural gas and biogas liquefiers from 7000 tpa to 72000 tpa. The company also offers natural gas and biogas distribution equipment, including truck loading stations and fuelling stations.
