Get more value out of waste by improved decision-making, and by reducing your operating costs. Vaisala CARBOCAP® MGP261 Multigas Probe for Methane, Carbon Dioxide and Humidity helps in improving your process and in protecting the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) engine. The MGP261 probe is compact in size, Ex certified, and can be installed directly into the gas line without the need for sample treatment.
The measurement probe is suitable for applications such as anaerobic digestion of landfill, industrial and municipal waste, wastewater treatment, CHP engine monitoring, as well as active carbon filter monitoring.
Increase profits through optimizing the process: the compact MGP261 probe can simultaneously measure all three main biogas components — methane, carbon dioxide, and humidity — giving you a full picture of the biogas quality.
Reduce CHP engine maintenance and downtime through reliable humidity control.
Accurate and reliable Ex certified measurement directly in the process pipeline; easy to install and fits into any system.
The groundbreaking Vaisala MGP261 biogas instrument has been awarded as Prize Winner in the category of Circular economy and carbon neutrality innovations of the global Quality Innovation Awards competition.
Danish researchers have demonstrated that it is possible to remove most of the carbon dioxide (CO2) from the emissions of a waste incinerator, and by demonstrating the viability of the process, the researchers believe that they have developed a key technology in the fight against climate change.
For biogas producers, keeping the process stable while making sure that combined heat and power (CHP) engines and active carbon filters work smoothly is just one of the challenges they have to face. In-line humidity measurement can help answer these challenges – and make biogas production more profitable.
Making biogas production profitable as quickly as possible is typically one of the most important factors when starting up or developing a biogas plant. Subsidy payments often require Combined Heat and Power (CHP) efficiency above a certain value.
Ämmässuo Waste Treatment Centre in Espoo HSY arranges the disposal of municipal waste and landfill processing, as well as the treatment of biowaste for producing biogas and compost. Ämmässuo is the largest waste treatment center in Finland, and among the largest waste treatment centers in Europe.
To drive large-scale adoption of biogas as an energy source, its cost must be brought closer to that of conventional energy. That cannot be achieved without improving the efficiency of biogas plants and optimizing their use of heating and electricity.
