Chemical siloxane removal system

Seaborne ERL GmbH has 4 IPR's within advanced treatment of biomass related to anaerobic digestion.

A part of these IPR's is chemical removal of Sulphur. This system can - under adaptations - be used with FC's.

In order to clean the biogas with special respect to Siloxanes and halogenated hydrogencarbons for usage in FC's, a combined chemical-physical cleaning process has been developed.

By the beginning of the project it was focalised upon laboratory investigations of Siloxane analytics and the chemical and physical properties of the isolated compounds.

After having identified the best possibility for combination with the SEABORNE biogas-cleaning unit, efforts were made to find a cost-effective solution.

SEABORNE finally presents a technical draft for elimination of Hydrogensulphide, Siloxanes and Hydrogencarbons. Costs are calculated for investigations and consumables basing on kWh el.
