The aim of this energy demonstration project was to upgrade the landfill-gas extracted from the landfill site of Nuenen (Eindhoven) to such a quality that it could be injected into the local natural gas grid after quality control. The upgrading is intended to remove the following components: water, H(2)S, halogenated hydrocarbons and CO(2). The latter is removed by means of an innovative PSA pressure swing adsorption system. The nominal capacity is 1200 Nm3/h of landfill-gas, which is upgraded into 735 Nm3/h of pseudo-natural gas. The CH(4) recovery yield is about 98 % and the pay-back time is 4.7 years.
