BioConversion Units Selected for South Korea Anaerobic Digester Retrofit

May 6, 2014
The units will reduce a projected one billion pounds of sludge over three years

Daejeon, South 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 South 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 Eng. (Seoul, South 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 Co.
