Abstract:

Farms and dairies generate byproducts containing more than 2 quadrillion Btu of energy per year. This energy is either not used at all or used in old and inefficient processes. Particularly, the use of biogas generated from bio-waste in distributed fuel cell systems presents a realistic, near-term solution that can yield large energy efficiency improvements. However, the biogas often contains relatively high concentrations of sulfur compounds that can poison the fuel cell anode and corrode the fuel cell components and process equipment. Our sorbent protects the fuel cell and makes the use of biogas produced from farm-waste and animal manure practical in the fuel cell CHP system.
