HyGear Announces Delivery of PSA System for Green Aviation Fuel Development Project


Development project to produce sustainable aircraft-grade kerosene from water and air, powered by renewable electricity

HyGear B.V. (“HyGear”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xebec Adsorption Inc. (TSX: XBC) (“Xebec”), is pleased to announce that it has delivered another gas upgrading system that is designed and developed in the framework of KEROGREEN.

KEROGREEN is a development project that aims to produce sustainable aircraft-grade kerosene from water and air powered by renewable electricity. The project is carried out by six partners from four European countries – Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Norway.

The system design includes HyGear’s pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology, which purifies carbon monoxide (CO) from a mixture that has high content of impurities of up to 87% of carbon dioxide (CO2), in order to efficiently produce high-grade CO at the lowest cost.

The PSA technology that is assembled and tested at HyGear’s facility in Arnhem, The Netherlands will be integrated into the complete process chain in Karlsruhe, Germany where one of the project partners, KIT is located. This integration process is a key step of the KEROGREEN technology. Once the technology is in place, a novel process for the production of sustainable aircraft-grade kerosene will be demonstrated.

European Union

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 763909.
