Lund based Bioprocess Control Sweden AB, winner of the Swedish national clean-tech innovations competition MiljöInnovation 2007, has signed a development agreement with Linköping based Svensk Biogas AB. During 2007, Bioprocess Control will verify its prize winning process optimisation software application Biogas OptimizerTM at the newly constructed Händelö biogas site owned and operated by Svensk Biogas.
Testing of Biogas OptimizerTM is scheduled to begin in May and will continue into the Fall, with the intention of assessing the performance of the optimisation application during full-scale production conditions.
- The Händelö biogas production site is ideal for testing Biogas OptimizerTM. The combination of having access to one of the most efficient biogas production sites in Sweden along with the extensive knowledge and experience of Svensk Biogas, will create a perfect environment for testing the capabilities of Biogas OptimizerTM, commented Kristofer Cook, CEO for Bioprocess Control.
While being partly financed by Energimyndigheten through Svenskt Gastekniskt Centers collective research programme, Svensk Biogas decided to dedicate both personnel and financial resources to the verification and development of Biogas OptimizerTM.
- Svensk Biogas has invested and will continue to invest significant resources into improving the efficiency of the biogas production process. This is an important part of our business idea and will ensure that we remain leaders in the production of biogas and technologies to improve process efficiency. Biogas OptimizerTM is an exciting innovation in this area with the potential to improve process efficiency, commented Carl Lilliehöök, CEO of Svensk Biogas.
Bioprocess Control has also begun to form closer ties with Swedish Biogas International AB, the privately owned biogas company with an exclusive license agreement regarding the biogas knowledge and patents from Svensk Biogas and Tekniska Verken in Linköping.
- Having access to the depth of process knowledge and experience that Swedish Biogas has, sets the stage for Swedish Biogas to become a leader in the global biogas arena. Forming close ties with Swedish Biogas will certainly help drive sales of Biogas OptimizerTM in several key markets and market segments, commented Kristofer Cook, CEO for Bioprocess Control.
- To be recognised as a leader in the international biogas industry, it is important to have access to state-of-the-art technology in the area of optimising the biogas production process. With Biogas OptimizerTM, we are looking to provide exactly this, commented Peter Undén, CEO for Swedish Biogas.
