Biogas contains a significant amount of impurities (e.g., H2S, NH3 and siloxane) and therefore, a cleaning procedure is generally required prior to applications. Cleaning methods such as pressurized water scrubbing, pressure swing adsorption, amine absorption and membrane permeation can be employed alone or combined to remove impurities. Syngas ...
