On-site oxygen for biogas production

Biogas is an up-and-coming renewable source of energy. It is produced by taking waste from households or businesses and turning it into a green fuel that can be used to generate gas, electricity and heat. Oxygen plays an important role in this process because it reacts with an undesirable byproduct of biogas production (hydrogen sulfide). This reduces the amount of hydrogen sulfide to a safe level and protects downstream equipment.

Oxygen requirements in biogas production

Oxygen plays a crucial role in the production of biogas. That’s why biogas plants must have a reliable oxygen supply. The oxygen also needs to be available at the correct flow to maintain the right level of hydrogen sulfide while minimizing oxygen use. The oxygen purity also must be high enough to reduce nitrogen content and improve the Wobbe/energy index while avoiding a needlessly high specification that comes with a higher cost per m3.

What are the benefits of on-site oxygen generation?

Many companies still purchase their oxygen – even though generating oxygen on-site offers more advantages.

  • Greater cost-efficiency saves you money
  • Eliminating bottle or liquid deliveries reduces your environmental footprint
  • Take charge of your own oxygen supply
  • Less hassle by removing supply logistics
