Abstract

Biogas production can take place in a Landfill site, to give Landfill Gas (LFG) or an anaerobic digester (ADG) gas. LFG and ADG contain various trace compounds, which may account for ∼ 0.15% vol of the total amount. These trace compounds may damage or hamper the normal operation of the power unit and therefore need to be removed down to tolerance levels. Removal of trace of H2S from three different gas streams was studied using a synthetic zeolite, i.e., Molecular Sieve 13X. The sulfur uptake capacity of the selected sorbent was determined according to gas composition, i.e., in the presence either ≤ 35% vol of CO2 or 0.2% H2O. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the CHISA 2012 - 20th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and PRES 2012 - 15th Conference PRES (Prague, Czech Republic 8/25-29/2012).
