For a couple of years, we have been closely involved in the replacement of existing biogas engines with modern technology in various European countries. The efficiency of existing biogas installations is improved by the application of Scania SGI-13 gas engines with an efficiency of over 44 %.

In the field, there are still many of these so-called dual-fuel engines. In this technology, diesel injection is used to ignite gas in the combustion chamber. Replacement by 100 % gas engines enables a € 25,000 – € 100,000 reduction of diesel costs – depending on the size of the installation. The dual-fuel engines often no longer meet the currently applicable emission requirements.

In addition to improving the efficiency, modern technology also produces lower emissions. The SGI-13 gas engines have a low NOx emission, and combined with an OxiCat, the formaldehyde emission is < 20mg . The Scania gas engines meet the current European guidelines which enter into force in 2019.
