During the panel, Krents will present findings from his paper entitled, “Optimizing Biogas Purification through Carbon Modification,” that focuses on how new innovations in activated carbon technology are enabling biogas producers to purify their biogas in a more cost effective and efficient manner.

Unwanted impurities should be removed from biogas in order to reduce equipment damage and downtime, help meet emission targets and comply with gas purity specifications. Cabot not only offers some of the industry’s most advanced materials for hydrogen sulfide (H2S), siloxane and volatile organic compound removal, but it also has a deep understanding of biogas producers’ process requirements.
