Biokomp: Biogas treatment plant

26 February 2024  -  Solutions, Corporate

Biokomp, a Pietro Fiorentini Group company, is one of the leading producers of complete packages for natural gas, biogas, biomethane, air and process gas compression & treatment plants of all sizes as well as special components. 

The Pietro Fiorentini Group company manufactures compression plants for natural gas, biogas, biomethane and industrial gases. Biokomp can provide different types of gas compressors and blowers: centrifugal, rotary screw, and piston.  

Performances and reliability are guaranteed by custom-designed projects according to the needed application. Biokomp solutions also also an extended technical support that starts from the feasibility study to the final commissioning, combined with an aftersales qualified assistance.

Biokomp solutions are available in different structures (open, closed, containerised) to allow maximum flexibility and integration with the industrial plants they are intended for, designed and built to withstand the most challenging climatic conditions. The Company’s strenght lies in providing strategic and optimised solutions for both conventional and special gas applications, particularly in the renewable energy generation and sustainable industry sectors.




Biokomp is specialised in designing and manufacturing low, medium and high pressure compressors for several gas types and different applications, including explosive and flammable fuels, hydrogen and light gases, using both oil-lubricated and oil-free technologies.

Compressor packages are available for hazardous (ATEX zone 1 and 2) and EX-proof installations.

Biokomp compressor

We can provide the following compression ranges:


  • LOW PRESSURE 0.5 ÷ 1 bar(g)
    Different boosting equipment for air and gas applications: side channel blowers, multistage centrifugal blowers, vacuum pumps and rotary vane compressors. Also available with ATEX-rating. – Pressure range: -500 ÷ 1000 mbar(g).
  • MEDIUM PRESSURE 0 ÷ 25 bar(g)
    Rotary screw compressors, fully packaged with instruments and automation control system, available for air, natural gas, LPG, biogas and industrial gases (EX-rated and NON-EX-rated). Pressure range: 0 ÷ 25 bar(g).
  • HIGH PRESSURE 0 ÷ 500 bar(g)
    Modular and scalable piston compressors for CNG, biomethane and other gases. We develop tailor-made solutions including all gas processing components, such as gas dryer and filter systems, storage units, and refuelling equipment. Pressure range: 0 ÷ 500 bar(g).



In biomethane plants, our Biokomp products can be successfully employed to allow biogas treatment and compression before and after upgrading, either to allow injection of biomethane into the natural gas grid or to use it as a vehicle fuel.

Reliability and performance of our equipment are essential not only to achieve the quality standards for natural gas, but also to ensure maximum energy efficiency and heat recovery.
Biomethane equipment Biokomp


Our extensive Biokomp post compression portfolio includes: High quality purification systems, fine particle filtration, drying units with condensate removal, gas refrigeration and heating with precise control of the gas temperature at discharge, and much more. Find the right gas equipment and information in our product configurator.

Biokomp compressor stations include post-compression treatment units, such as cyclone filters, coalescing filters, dryers and chillers with condensate drainers which remove liquids, dirt, particles, and other impurities from the compressed gas. Condensate is removed automatically from the gas and conveyed to the outlet so to be safely disposed.


The post-compression treatment solutions can range as specified below:


    Gas refrigerant dryers and water chillers specially designed for operation with air, acid, flammable and toxic gases. Stainless steel heat exchangers with automatic drainers. Dessiccant adsorption dryers with activated alumina, silica gels, and molecular sieves.
    Economizers and heat exchangers designed to recover the compression heat and make it available to an external fluid. Available in different materials and sizes. Tailor-made systems with different temperature and flow options.
    Ultra-fine oil particulate filters and special activated carbon filters for oil removal up to 0,01 mg/m³, according to ISO 8573 requirements for oil-free gases.
    Post-compression gas conditioning skids, designed to control the gas temperature at discharge within a narrow tolerance range. Complete units with oil heat recovery, heat carrier pump, and programmable temperature control logic.


Biokomp atex blowers

Our Biokomp side-channel and centrifugal blowers are specifically developed for use with sour gas & biogas, to ensure smooth operation, maximum efficiency and high durability.

Available in a range of different sizes, all blowers are in compliance with the ATEX directive, to be used in explosion protection zones.




According to the specific customer’s needs, we Biokomp offers a full range of different layouts and enclosures from compact units developed for embedded applications to full containerized industrial plants.

Our systems are designed to stand even the most challenging climate conditions, from desert sand storms to the icy winds of Siberian remote regions.
Biokomp enclosuresAll Biokomp systems can be housed in different enclosures, according to the specific installation needs. From simple skids to fully-equipped containers, we can design and provide the right solution for your project.






Boosting steelmaking efficiency: In order to use the process gas into a 2MW steam boiler, we have recently supplied a gas booster with knock-out drum for fine filtration of solid contaminants and temperature control system to cool the gas at the temperature required by the burner.
