Natural Gas

Lower emissions with natural gas cogeneration applications.

Natural gas fired power plants emit approximately 40% less CO2 than coal, 20% less than oil, and around 30% less than diesel. This makes natural gas a suitable dispatchable counterpart to the growing proportion of fluctuating non-dispatchable renewables in global power grids. You can deploy natural gas immediately to serve as a substitute and bridge towards a cleaner energy future. Natural gas emits 202g of CO2/kWh instead of more than the 400g of CO2/kWh that is emitted out of lignite.

Natural gas engines are a key component of power generation plants dedicated to minimizing carbon footprints. These engines are known for their efficiency, reliability, and lower emissions compared to traditional fossil fuel engines.

Turning biogas into heat and power.

Instead of producing waste that creates emissions, organic waste—also called biomass—can be used as a valuable energy source when turned into biogas.

The Jenbacher solution

Jenbacher biogas generator sets are widely used by farmers and industrial users across the globe. Onsite biogas power plants can be used by businesses to supply their own electricity and heat needs, or biogas gensets can produce electricity for future off-take to the grid.

Biogas power generators can be installed inside buildings or also can be supplied as ready-to-use biogas power plant solutions in a container.

Benefits of biogas engines

An investment in INNIO’s Jenbacher cogeneration technology lets you realize impressive economic and ecological benefits when using biogas for power generation:

l Highly efficient for combined onsite power and heat generation with biogas (biogas CHP).

l Ready-to-use biogas power plant solutions in containers.

l A green waste-to-energy/waste-to-power application decreases your business’ carbon footprint.

l An alternative disposal of dung, liquid manure and biowaste, while simultaneously harnessing energy—a valuable substitute for conventional fuels.

Sewage Gas

Turning wastewater into green energy.

The Jenbacher solution

Jenbacher gas engines provide the solution to the rising energy costs that wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators have had to pay to meet their discharge permit requirements. Our gas engines efficiently and reliably convert sewage gas into electricity in plants that use anaerobic digestion for biosolids treatment. The process covers up to 80% of a plant’s electricity needs and makes it unnecessary to burn fossil fuels for heating. The gas produced in anaerobic digesters from municipal WWTPs generally contains 55% to 65% methane and typically has a low heating value of 500 to 600 BTU/SCF.

Benefits of CHP for wastewater treatment plants

u LEANOX controls with turbo charger bypass help ensure the correct air-to-gas ratio to lessen exhaust gas emissions while maintaining stable engine operation.

u Electrical efficiency of up to 43% reduces the need to purchase energy from the public grid.

u A fully developed monitoring function, including remote monitoring, creates high levels of reliability.

u Maintenance intervals – 60,000 operating hours for major overhauls and 30,000 for cylinder heads – cut maintenance costs.

u Seamless dual fuel mixing evens out gas production fluctuations by supplementing natural gas as needed.

u High power engine density reduces space requirements and installation costs.

u The low-vibration engine has negligible impact on buildings.

Landfill Gas

Landfill Gas as an energy source.

The controlled collection and combustion of this Gas is an indispensable step in the modern operation and re-cultivation of a landfill site. In addition, the high calorific value of landfill gas makes it a viable fuel for gas engines that can be effectively used for power generation. With more than 25 years of experience in the combustion of landfill gas throughout the world, INNIO's Jenbacher landfill gas engines provide an ideal solution for using your waste gas as an energy source.

How does it work?

Municipal waste contains about 150 to 250 kg of organic carbon per ton. These substances are biologically degradable and are converted by microorganisms into landfill gas. Stable, anaerobic methane fermentation begins one to two years after the waste is deposited in the landfill.

Benefits of landfill gas to energy solutions

Jenbacher landfill gas engines are specially designed to run at full load with high efficiency, despite a low heating value and fluctuations of gas quality and pressure. High quality engine parts resist impurities that usually appear in this type of fuel.

u Mitigation of greenhouse gas (methane) and possible carbon monetization with INNIO landfill gas to energy solutions.

u Revenues for power production, when fed into the public grid.

u Alternative disposal of landfill gas while simultaneously harnessing it as an energy source.

u Low weight landfill gas generators in containers. Ready-to-use landfill gas power generation solutions are easy to move and adjust to changing project capacity.

u Smooth operation despite low heating value and fluctuations in gas composition and pressure.

u Standard electrical efficiency of up to 42% and up to 90% in the case of combined heat and power (landfill gas cogeneration/CHP).

u CL.AIR integrated emission control solution complies with country-specific standards.

Coal Mine Gas

However, the potential danger of coal mine gas (CMG) and methane emissions can be greatly reduced when they are harnessed properly for power and heat generation. Since the early 1990s, Jenbacher gas engines product line, with an installed capacity of more than 400 MW running on coal mine gas worldwide, has provided solutions for this special application.

Today, most large underground hard coal mines potentially contain coal mine methane, and abandoned mine methane and can be effectively used for power and heat generation with gas engines.

Sudden changes in the composition of CMG put greater demands on the engine, however. INNIO offers a special gas mixing and engine control system that enables efficient use of this gas to a minimum CH4-concentration of only 25%.

Additionally, Jenbacher gas engines are designed to operate on full load, despite low gas pressure, high humidity, dust load, and altitude.

The generated energy can be used in the coal mine to meet electricity requirements or fed into the public power grid. Thermal energy can be used for onsite heating or fed into a district heating system.

CO2-neutral power generation solutions

Well suited in engines for power, heat and/or cooling generation, H2 can be integrated with solar, wind, or other renewable technologies to form the backbone of your 100% renewable microgrid. When using green hydrogen in engines, you can even achieve a zero-carbon emission solution.

3 ways to use hydrogen with Jenbacher engines

1. H2 in pipeline gas

All new Jenbacher engines are "Ready for H2".* They can be offered with the option of running with up to 25% (vol) of hydrogen in pipeline gas. As hydrogen becomes more readily available, all "Ready for H2" units and most of the currently installed Jenbacher pipeline gas gas-fueled engines can be converted to operate on 100% hydrogen. Type 4 engine solutions are available to run on 100% H2 today.

* In general, “Ready for H2” Jenbacher units can be converted to operate on up to 100% hydrogen in the future. Details on the cost and timeline for a

2. H2 locally admixed to conventional gas

Up to 60% (vol) hydrogen content can be admixed to pipeline gas fuel for use in special versions of Jenbacher Type 3, 4, and 6 engines. Type 4 engines and CHP systems are available today as dual gas-fuel solutions capable of running on 100% conventional gas, 100% H2, or mixtures of conventional gas and H2.

3. 100% H2 as an energy source

Jenbacher Type 4 engine solutions now are available as 100% H2 engine systems operating exclusively on hydrogen. These plants are CO2-free by design.
