Research Institution
Biogas from anaerobic digestion of biological wastes is a renewable energy resource. It has been used to provide heat, shaft power and electricity. While methane is a major component of biogas, other constituents (chiefly carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide) lower the energy content and introduce undesirable corrosive properties.In this Phase I SBIR project, we propose to develop a biogas purification process. In our approach, both carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide are removed in a single reactor using a self-regenerating medium resulting in purified biogas.
