Philipp Samland of UGN-Umwelttechnik explains how to enhance the carbon footprint of your biogas plant using its alternative to activated carbon.

For more than 15 years, German company UGN-Umwelttechnik has delivered innovative, effective, and cost-efficient gas desulphurisation and purification solutions and sold desulphurisation and exhaust air purification systems, as well as a proprietary filtering material in many parts of the world.

Typically, biogas plant desulphurisation is achieved by using activated carbon filters. Activated carbon filters are used to remove hydrogen sulphide from the biogas, which means that only methane and carbon dioxide remain. Proper incineration of the activated carbon that now carries the sulphur removed from the biogas requires an approved disposal contractor, which can be costly.

After more than 10 years of research, UGN has achieved an environmentally compatible and cost-efficient alternative to activated carbon. In cooperation with renowned research institutes, UGN succeeded in developing a cellulose fibre-based filtering material for industrial use, that is sold under the...
