The Gwangyang facility will produce 500 000 metric tons of pipeline quality SNG from the gasification of approximately 1.8 million tons of coal annually.

The plant will use Porvair’s design for its char filtration package to remove fly ash during the gasification process.

Under the agreement, Porvair will supply all designs as well as filters and ancillary equipment. Porvair will also become POSCO E&C’s preferred supplier for future SNG facilities.

The contract is expected to generate revenues of US$10-15 million for Porvair.

“This is a significant contract for Porvair, in a market that we have been developing steadily for several years,” said Ben Stocks, Porvair CEO.
