Xebec Adsorption Inc., a global provider of clean energy solutions, is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) on June 5, 2020, for the sale of a multi-million dollar landfill gas to renewable natural gas (RNG) installation, to a large-scale waste management customer in North America.

Xebec expects the LOI to convert into backlog over the coming months and system delivery to occur in 2021.

In addition, Xebec has received multiple hydrogen purification orders for the production of cost-effective, high purity hydrogen for use in fuel cells and industrial applications. The aggregate order amount of the landfill and hydrogen projects announced today, and the Alberta RNG Project LOI announced on June 3, 2020, is $11.9 million.

Xebec’s market presence in Canada expands

On June 1, 2020, Xebec announced the creation of the GNR Québec Capital L.P. investment fund. This new investment vehicle aims to increase renewable natural gas (RNG) production in Québec and Canada, and when fully capitalized and appropriately leveraged, could fund 12 to 15 renewable natural gas projects in Canada.

While this landfill project will not be invested into through the fund, the LOI showcases the increasing number of projects that are coming online for RNG, and how Xebec is becoming a valuable technology provider and financial partner in the waste-to-RNG space in Canada.

“We’re excited to be working on another landfill project with a new customer in the waste management industry. This LOI marks a step in the right direction as we provide a complete ‘flange to flange’ solution. Our offering is compelling to waste management customers because we have the capabilities to do all the engineering in-house, have the best in class technology to upgrade landfill gas to pipeline specification, and have a solid track record with previous landfill projects.

Canada is starting to develop as a significant market for us as the country continues its fight against climate change. This LOI and the recent partnership we announced with the Fonds de solidarité FTQ to invest in renewable natural gas projects, are important developments within the industry as we start to see RNG infrastructure roll out. Xebec is proud to see the traction we are getting, and we look forward to playing a leadership role in our home country. Lastly, we continue to see demand for our hydrogen PSA solutions for integrated on-site hydrogen generators. Our compact, reliable and cost-effective hydrogen purification solutions are enablers for the distributed hydrogen infrastructure,” said Prabhu Rao, Ph.D., chief operating officer, Xebec Adsorption Inc.
