Abstract
Altex Technologies and the Pennsylvania State University propose the BioPure-FC biogas purification system, which is designed to purify biogas from landiflls and wastewater-treatement plants to levels compatible with fuel-cell systems. PSU's novel sorbents combined with Altex's system-development expertise will enable the BioPure-FC system to reduce global warming potential and save fuel.
