The Cryobox Micro LNG-Station makes it happen.
Cryobox Micro LNG Production technology represents a paradigm shift away from large scale, fixed LNG plants requiring significant investments.
The Cryobox modular design, mobility and scalability allows for small scale LNG production to match initial demand, with incremental increases in production as demand increases over time.
The LNG produced by the Cryobox® Nano Station can supply the fuel for your company, whether it’s a heavy transport venture, a mining enterprise, an industry located in a remote region or a community far removed from a gas pipeline. Neither technological limitations nor large investment capital requirements will prevent you from using low CO2 emission LNG in place of diesel or fuel oil. Cryobox will allow you to become your own producer of LNG, meeting all environmental requirements even in the fuel-production and storage phase.
While Cryobox® turns LNG into an available and financially convenient source of clean fuel, there are even more benefits. Compared with any other Diesel substitute, LNG has superior energy density. This means that a given tank of this fuel will carry you further. For this reason LNG is the most appropriate and cleanest fuel for heavy, long-distance transport such as heavy trucks, buses, ships, barges, ferries and railroad locomotives when long distances need to be covered and refueling opportunities are scarce. Cryobox® has an adjustable production capacity of up to 38,000L of LNG per Day
The high-pressure, thermodynamic cycle of the Cryobox converts natural gas to the liquid state as temperatures are reduced to approx. -150 °C. This multi-stage compression process includes a “boil-off” recovery system which eliminates all gas-venting usually associated with LNG storage and loading facilities. This process avoids gas waste while complying with all safety regulations.
Cryobox® packages all the capabilities of a large scale LNG plant into one compact and transportable module which shares the off-the-shelf components and main features of Galileo’s compressor packages, namely: modularity, low weight, economies in transport and ease of installation. You can be a leader in the LNG revolution by implementing the widely proven technology of Galileo.
Since no additional constructions -such as perimeter containment walls- are necessary, Cryobox® can be hauled anywhere by a simple trailer for immediate connection and start-up. Due to its packaged configuration, Cryobox® can be placed in a fuel-station and connected to the natural gas distribution line. It can also be installed right at the well-head of a distant oil & gas field. In this latter location, Cryobox® creates an additional environmental benefit by converting contaminating vented gas into a high value added liquid fuel.
When natural gas demand does not justify the investment in a conventional pipeline, Cryobox® is the best complement to Galileo’s Virtual Pipeline™, supplying LNG gas by highway to mines, remote industries and isolated communities beyond 250 miles. This is possible because the Virtual Pipeline™ can optimize truck capacity and transport costs owing to LNG properties.
The Cryobox® has the alternate capacity to supply CNG for your own local fleet of vehicles, or to refuel other urban vehicles.
