Xebec's mission is to provide our customers with innovative solutions which transform raw gases into marketable sources of clean energy. Xebec designs and builds biogas upgrading plants for landfill gas, waste water treatment and anaerobic digester gas and manufacturers natural gas dryers for the natural gas vehicle (NGV) market.


Quality Assurance is an integral part of Xebec’s management and manufacturing philosophy. Xebec holds many high level manufacturing certifications including: ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9001:2008, ISO14001:2004, OHSAS (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) 18001:2007, American Society of Mechanical Engineers. ASME, Canadian Standards Association for Canada - CSA, Canadian Standards Association for the United States CSAUS, Canadian Registration Number - CRN, NGV (Natural Gas Vehicle) America, NGV (Natural Gas Vehicle) Alliance. The company has implemented IMS (Integrated Management System) which incorporates all three ISO standards into a single system which complies with all internal and external laws and regulations.

Xebec’s headquarters are located in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located in Blainville, Quebec, Canada. Xebec also operates a second manufacturing facility in Shanghai, Xebec has sales offices in Blainville Quebc, Vancouver, B.C. and Shanghai, China.

AGX SOLUTIONS – Associated Gas and Field Gas Purification

The cost of drilling and hydraulic fracturing is hugely impacted by rising diesel costs. As the price of natural gas and natural gas liquids (HGLs) has dropped over the last 2 years, drilling operators are looking at ways to lower their operating costs. In most liquids rich shale gas plays the high heating values (HV) of the field gas, does not allow for immediate use as diesel displacement. Xebec's AGX line of Fast-Cycle Pressure-Swing Adsorption systems remove heavier hydrocarbon from field gas, lowering the HV and thereby making it useable on converted drilling rigs and for frack pumps. Up to 60% of diesel can be displaced by cheaper, cleaner field gas. The result is significantly lower operating costs, lower emissions, longer engine life and an overall positive environmental impact.

AMX SOLUTIONS – Aftermarket Service and Parts

Xebec offers a complete range of aftermarket parts including filter elements, desiccant, valves and adsorbents. Xebec has a full-service team which performs on-site commissioning and regular maintenance of all its equipment. Xebec is also the only company in North America which offers in-house recalibration of dewpoint probes.

BGX Solutions – Biogas Purification

To-date, electricity generation has been the most common option for energy recovery from biogas, accounting for over 60% of the operational landfill gas processing plants in the United States. However, the recovery of pipeline grade methane or compressed natural gas (CNG) from landfill gas is also viable using gas purification technology. Xebec’s methane purifiers are used around the world to upgrade biogas to renewable natural gas. For instance, the Xebec gas purification system at Cincinnati’s Rumpke Landfill, one of the largest landfills in the U.S., upgrades biogas from the landfill into pipeline-quality renewable natural gas.

FSX Solutions – Gas and Compressed Air Filtration

Xebec also produces a wide variety of filtration equipment needed for gas treatment or systems. These products include water separators for bulk water removal, coalescing filters for the removal of fine water droplets, and particulate filters for the capture of dust. Sizes range from single element cast aluminum housings to industrial scale multi-element fabricated filter housings of carbon or stainless steel.

H2X Solutions – Hydrogen Purification

Adsorption technology is used in both hydrogen generation plants and for hydrogen recovery from the oil refinery process. The overall increase in hydrogen demand is expected to drive demand for adsorption systems for use in large capacity hydrogen plants, and for recovering hydrogen in oil refineries. Xebec, in collaboration with ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company, has developed a large capacity adsorption product platform for use in a range of refinery applications, including hydrogen recovery from refinery off-gas streams.

NGX Solutions – Natural Gas Dehydration for Refueling Stations

Xebec is the world leader in the drying of natural gas for vehicle refueling stations, with major installations around the globe. Xebec enjoys a 96% market share of the natural gas drying market, and has supplied major petrochemical companies including Exxon, Sunco, Sinopec, and Petro China. All Xebec dryers are ASME code compliant and National Board Certified, and can be built to specific requirements, such as the Chinese and Malaysian pressure vessel codes.

NGX Solutions – Natural Gas Purification for Crude Oil and Diesel Displacement

Utilities and industry recognize the need to replace crude-derived fuels with lower cost, cleaner sources of energy. As a result, natural gas is in increasing demand as it is domestic, secure, abundant, clean and currently significantly less expensive. However, often the end-user has no direct access to a natural gas pipeline; as a consequence companies are tapping into high pressure trunk lines, creating so-called virtual pipelines, by delivering compressed natural gas by tube trailers to industrial users. Xebec designs and manufactures high pressure (up to 1200 psi and higher) dehydration systems that are used prior to compression of the gas and filling of the tube trailers.

Xebec’s stated business objective is to achieve sustained profitable growth through the creation of superior customer value.

The values and beliefs we hold as a corporation guide the actions we take to achieve our business objectives. Achieving commercial success in ways that honor ethical values, respect people, communities, and the natural environment are essential to Xebec.

Xebec designs, develops, builds, sells, and services a range of pressure swing adsorption and membrane gas purification systems for biogas purification (BGX Solutions™); natural gas dehydration and conditioning units for natural gas vehicle refueling stations and for natural gas upgrading (NGX Solutions™); hydrogen purification pressure swing adsorption (PSA) systems (H2X Solutions™); helium purification systems (SGX Solutions™); field gas or associated gas purification systems (AGX Solutions™); and filtration and separation equipment (FSX Solutions™).
