Ce-In Biogas: The Revolutionary Iron Nanoparticle Additive That Is Redefining Efficiency in Biogas Production

The company Calpec has developed and patented the production of iron nanoparticles coated in carbon. This innovative process originated in 2016 at the University of Alicante, thanks to the “Economy for Circular Engineering (I4CE)” research team.

Composed of scientists and doctors with expertise in biogas, nanotechnology and waste management, what stands out is the originality of the product and the team behind the technology. Calpech prides itself on offering low prices and is available to provide additional information to those interested in its technology.

What are iron nanoparticles used for?

iron nanoparticles Encapsulated carbon (CE-nZVI) is used for environmental solutions: for the improvement of biogas production and the elimination of hydrogen sulfide in biodigesters, as well as for the elimination of heavy metals in contaminated water and soil.

Bioscrubber is an absorption technology that uses a solution of water and biological microorganisms to treat gaseous emissions. This innovative technology is capable of treating emissions that contain acidic and alkaline compounds, fine particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are often responsible for unpleasant odors.

In this process, iron nanoparticles play a vital role by acting as catalysts in the removal of the harmful chemical compound hydrogen sulfide.

These iron nanoparticles perform better than commercial carbon and can work in both dry and wet conditions. Its use in bioscrubbers contributes significantly to “biogas upgrading” by improving the quality of the produced gas and reducing pollutant emissions.

Iron nanoparticles are…

Iron nanoparticles are particles one million times smaller than one millimeter in size. Iron is a very strong metal, but it also has very interesting properties and if you make it so small, it can do amazing things to help the environment. They also help produce biogas, burning it for energy and heat. Iron nanoparticles help clean water and soil that are contaminated with nasty metals that are dangerous to human health and make water unusable, and land unsuitable for growing anything. Apart from this, they can also be used as fertilizers to help in the growth of plants and fruits.

Ce-In, a revolutionary additive in biogas, has revolutionized the current industry

In the field of biogas production, an innovative additive called CE-IN Biogas Which is revolutionizing the industry. This additive consists of iron nanoparticles encapsulated in carbon, minerals and biocatalysts.

Its application in facilities such as WWTPs, food and industrial wastewater treatment plants, and biogas plants allows efficient removal of hydrogen sulfide generated during anaerobic digestion. Furthermore, it has been proven that the use of CE-IN biogas can increase biogas production by up to 30%.

What problems can be avoided by using iron nanoparticles?

In this biogas Avoids the production of hydrogen sulphide, a toxic gas which has the characteristic odor of rotten eggs and at 10ppm it has a perceptible odor limit and at 500ppm it is lethal to humans. Although biogas plants operate with closed pipes, sewage or pumping wells where degradation of organic matter also produces hydrogen sulfide, there have been fatal cases of people who did not have special equipment to measure air quality.

He hydrogen sulfide It is also a highly corrosive gas and damages pipes and combustion engines, which increases the number of modifications, costs more on maintenance and shortens its useful life.

It also reduces the performance of these motors, making it impossible to obtain the expected power or heat, as performance can drop by more than 50%. Biogas stations usually spend 10 to 30 thousand euros on the maintenance of these engines due to hydrogen sulfide emissions.

Fertilizers can prevent iron chlorosis, a plant disease caused by iron deficiency. Apart from improving crops as a fertilizer, Iron NP prevents iron chlorosis of plants due to essential iron supply and helps in ion exchange between soil and plants.

Who is CE-in Biogas for?

sum of Carbon-encapsulated iron nanoparticlescalled CE-IN Biogas, specifically intended for facilities that have a biogas production line. This includes wastewater treatment plants (EDARs), food industry plants or food wastewater treatment, industrial wastewater treatment plants, and agricultural and livestock production plants.

it focuses on the adder B2B (Business to Business) market), and its customers are those who are directly involved in these activities, such as managers, plant managers, operators and other professionals in charge of biogas production from various types of organic waste.

CE-IN Biogas Provides significant benefits for these facilities, as it allows to improve biogas production and to eliminate hydrogen sulfide generated during anaerobic digestion. Its application can increase biogas production by up to 30%, which represents a significant increase in the efficiency and profitability of these plants.

Target aims to provide an innovative and effective solution to improve biogas production and reduce associated problemsThe production of hydrogen sulfide, as such, provides both economic and environmental benefits.

Laboratory and pilot testing service for biogas production

To support the implementation of this technology, a laboratory and pilot testing service is offered. These tests make it possible to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of additives under controlled conditions, ensuring optimum results in biogas production facilities. This service ensures that customers can apply technology effectively and maximize your performance.
