Biogas Handling Systems

For an illustration on biogas processing for utilities, visit the interactive diagram developed by the American Biogas Council.

Captured biogas is transported via pipe from the digester, either directly to a gas use device or to a gas treatment system (e.g. for moisture or hydrogen sulfide removal). If the manure contains high concentrations of sulfur, then hydrogen sulfide is removed from the gas to prevent corrosion of the combustion device. In most cases, however, the only treatment needed is to remove excess moisture prior to combustion.
