Colsen realizes a BIDOX installation for the desulphurization of landfill gas

By the end of 2016 Colsen received the order to realize an installation for the desulphurization of landfill gas from Afvalverwerking Vink in Barneveld (The Netherlands). The amount of landfill gas (ca. 1.000 m³/hr) and the concentration of H₂S (circa 5.500 ppm) required the design and construction of the largest single BIDOX unit within the program of Colsen. The BIDOX reactor has a diameter of 5 m and is 12 m in height.

The BIDOX will remove H₂S via a biological process, where the low pH ensures that no elementary Sulphur will be produced. The Bidox system is not only characterized as a low-maintenance but also as a low-energy consuming solution for the removal of H₂S from gas streams. In the period from January to March 2017 the BIDOX unit has been assembled and in April 2017 the reactor will be started up. Colsen will hand this BIDOX installation over to Vink as a turnkey project.
