Quadrogen Power Systems

Description:

Quadrogen Power Systems Inc. and its consortium partners will demonstrate the technical and commercial viability of Canada’s first renewably-fuelled combined heat, hydrogen and power system, utilizing landfill gas (a form of biogas) derived from the Vancouver Landfill. This project will demonstrate Quadrogen’s high performance Integrated Landfill Gas Clean-up System and H2 Booster technologies integrated with an internal reforming fuel cell power plant. It aims to generate up to 250 kW of renewable electricity, 100 kW of heat, 30 kg/day of high purity hydrogen, and have the ability to directly supply greenhouses with clean CO2-rich exhaust from the fuel cell system. The project aims to demonstrate a new quality benchmark for landfill gas cleaning and for power plant efficiency with ultra-low emissions. It also hopes to showcase a cost-effective distributed generation model with the potential to help build the hydrogen infrastructure of tomorrow’s sustainable energy sector.
