Description
Bose Research & Development Inc.'s patented "Methane Gas Recovery & Usage System For Coal Mines, Municipal Land Fills & Oil Refinery Vent Stacks" (U.S. Patent #s 7,704,291 and 7,591,866) compresses biogases from these sources to operate the system's free-wheeling gas turbine at a high rotational speed. This turbo-expansion followed by centrifugal separation in the adjoining vortex cone separates the gas streams into methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. CH4 is discharged through the hollow shaft of the turbine at one end and CO2 through the open end of the vortex tube at the small end. The system is able to achieve a 97 percent CH4 concentration suitable for natural gas sale. It can be used to run an internal combustion engine driven alternator for electricity generation with 40 percent energy efficiency. The cost is low and payback is within 3 years.
