Flaring Solutions for the Biogas Industry - Siloxane Destruction

by ABUTEC LLC     based in Kennesaw, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Biogases are emitted into the atmosphere through a variety of products. Often, these biogases contain siloxanes, non-toxic compounds that are frequently added to consumer products, such as detergents, shampoos, deodorants (to improve texture and feel), cosmetics, paper coatings and many textiles. While some siloxanes quickly volatilize into the atmosphere, others remain present and can be found in the biogas emitted from wastewater treatment facilities and anaerobic digesters.

Measurement solution for siloxane monitoring in biogas and landfill

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

The generation of electricity from municipal digesters and land fill is of increasing interest, as the biogas can allow for a form of renewable energy. Organosilicon compounds often find their way into land-fill or digester gases as siloxanes. Siloxanes are low-level hazards to the atmosphere in terms of their emissions, however when they are combusted in gas engines the hard silica that is produced is very harsh to the moving parts of the gas engine.

What are siloxanes?

The generation of electricity from municipal digesters and land fill is of increasing interest, as the biogas generated is a form of renewable energy. Organosilicon compounds are often present in products such as shampoo and cosmetics, as well as industrial products and lubricants, and they move into land-fill. These volatile compounds find their way into land-fill or digester gases as siloxanes.
