Power production

with sewage gas

MWM CHP and power plants with gas engines ideally configured for sewage gas. Immediate readiness worldwide.

Using methane from sewage plants for decentralized electric power production

Sewage gas has a heating value of 6 to 6.4 kWh/m³ and a fluctuating methane content due to its organic ingredients.  The heat generated during power generation is used as process heat in the sewage plant and thus saves additional energy costs.

Ready for rapid commissioning

Thanks to comprehensive testing routines, MWM features ready-made solutions for challenging sewage gases with low methane content. That is why MWM gas engines are ideally configured to your gas, thus eliminating the need for elaborate adjustment processes.

Detailed knowledge from successful sewage gas project

Worldwide over 400 gensets are deployed in sewage gas projects, with a total output of over 300 MWel.

International experience

Comprehensive industry knowledge for worldwide successful sewage gas projects and numerous international reference projects with the most diverse requirements make MWM a leading partner for long-term efficient sewage gas solutions.
