In biogas plants the biogas formed through a controlled fermentation process is often used for power generation
In biogas plants the biogas formed through a controlled fermentation process is often used for power generation thanks to its high concentration of biomethane.
However, biogas generated from the increased use of different types of waste as a raw material may contain high levels of pollutants which can have a significant impact on the upgrading process for the biogas (removal of carbon dioxide from biogas to produce biomethane).
Among them, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) must be removed to allow biogas to be used in other applications besides energy production.
However, VOC abatement techniques currently available on the market involve the use of expensive activated carbon filters. A2A is looking for effective and less expensive alternatives to activated carbon filters to remove VOCs from raw gas, particularly for biogas with high VOC concentrations.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge; the Solver will only need to submit a written proposal to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
