BioConversion Solutions AFC2 MCG Units Selected for Daejeon, S. Korea Municipal Anaerobic Digester Retrofit

"The Daejeon project and several others in process represent major forward momentum for BCS and our technology,"

EXTON, Pa. — Daejeon, S. Korea is installing BioConversion Solutions' (BCS) Advanced Fluidized Co-Digestion and Co-Generation (AFC2) system to retrofit the City's anaerobic digester. The Daejeon system will utilize two BCS AFC2 MCG units to reduce a projected one billion pounds of sludge over three years, lower costs, and enhance overall performance. Biogas production at the Daejeon plant will be increased commensurate with increased solids destruction. Daejeon is the fifth largest city in S. Korea.


"The Daejeon project and several others in process represent major forward momentum for BCS and our technology," comments Dr. Alan Rozich, Chairman and CEO, BioConversion Solutions. "This solidifies BCS' leadership role in increasing affordable biomass conversion worldwide."

Representatives from the City of Daejeon, DOHWA Engineering (Seoul, S. Korea), and Pan Asia, BCS' Korean licensing partner, viewed the BCS MCG units last week prior to shipping. The equipment inspection, required by the City of Daejeon and DOHWA, took place at the factory of BCS' exclusive partner, Hockmeyer Equipment Company.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
