Biogas composition determination (quality and quantity)

The obtained biogas was analysed. The biogas compounds sought were CH4, CO2, H2S, O2 and N2.

Average biogas composition obtained is around 65% and 70% Methane, 25% Carbon dioxide. As substrate fat concentration became higher, the percentage of methane in the biogas increased as well. Taking care that a high fat concentration in digester inhibits the methanization process.

Also we have investigated the different averages biogas compositions for several HRT.
