  • Cleaning biogas with bacteria

    Organic materials added to an anaerobic digester commonly contain sulphur components. During the anaerobic digestion process, the sulphur is converted into hydrogen sulphide (H2S), which is absorbed by the biogas. When the biogas produced in an AD plant goes on to be combusted in a gas engine or boiler, the H2S will give off sulphur dioxide (SO2) and sulphuric acid ...

  • CHP efficiency for biogas

    Combined heat and power plant efficiency is a function of the conversion efficiency of the energy in the fuel gas to useful energy in the form of electricity and heat. A combined heat and power (CHP) plant is typically a reciprocating gas engine that uses the energy in the gas to drive a crank shaft. The crank shaft turns an alternator to ...

  • A Summary of Available Analytical Methods for the Determination of Siloxanes in Biogas

    ABSTRACT The importance of measuring siloxanes has increased with the recent growth of the landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) market. Siloxanes and other biogas impurities can form a residue upon combustion in engines that may increase maintenance and reduce engine lifetime.  A siloxanes analysis can assist with either determining if a bioaas purification system is needed, or if a system is ...

  • Case study - ABUTEC’s medium temperature flare burns canning plant biogas

    A Northumberland, Pa.-based canning plant recently contacted ABUTEC, through ADI System Inc., for help combusting the biogases created during the canning process. During this process, foods that are being prepared for canning create biogases that are used in power generation for the local facility. Excess gases that are not used by the gensets are typically vented into atmosphere, which can ...

  • Biogas cleaning / conditioning - A requirement for optimal functioning of CHP systems

    Biogas is obtained through the anaerobic decomposition (putrefaction) of organic matter. It contains methane (CH4) in varying proportions, ranging from 35% to 70%, a proportion which largely depends on production methods and the materials involved in the process. This methane concentration is what enables biogas to be used as fuel. The release of methane into the atmosphere contributes to an ...
