Biogas purification

Modes of purification

Whatever the valorisation of biogas (heat or electricity), the presence of a very large variety of components in the biogas, of which some, like the hydrogen sulphide have poisonous and corrosive properties which impose the implementation of biogas purification.

Usage Boiler combustion and process Electricity production and cogeneration Biogas fuel Injection in the natural gas grid
Purification requirement De-hydratation
Desulphurization (if necessary)    
De-hydratation
De-sulphurization (if necessary)
