Small-Scale LNG Innovation
PolaireTech leads the market in small-scale LNG with its pioneering Z1-LNG technology. Under a license agreement, we offer standardised liquefaction plant modules – P5 and P60 – catering to capacities up to 60,000 tpa of natural gas. With a focus on efficiency and viability, our patented zero-refrigerant LNG process slashes operating costs and equipment needs. Modular and streamlined, Polaire P5 and Polaire P60 plants signify our commitment to cutting-edge solutions for peak shaving, transportation fuel, and more.
Because the PolaireTech Z1-LNG technology uses no refrigerant other than the incoming methane in the cold box, and only uses one expander, the flow scheme is significantly less complex than the competition.
Low Power Demand
The liquefaction process has a lower power demand than the competition because of the innovative design.
Because of the simplicity in design and the fact that no provision must be made for refrigerants or refrigerant mixtures, the major equipment count is far lower than the competition.
Because of the simplicity in design and fewer major equipment, the opportunity for leaks and emissions is greatly reduced.
Unlocking Local Energy Markets
PolaireTech’s small-scale LNG is ideal for localised gas resources in relatively remote locations. Our Polaire P5 and P60 plants are tailored for markets with underutilised conventional and unconventional gas sources, including coal-bed methane, shale gas, and bio-waste-derived gas. These solutions are ideal for situations where ample, untapped gas resources align with a need to replace diesel fuel, catering to remote mining, industrial operations, and extensive logistical networks.
