    Abstract

    The paper focuses on the development of an on-line measurement method for siloxanes and other biogas trace compounds impeding the energy utilization of biogas, as well as the main gas components, methane and carbon dioxide. The method is based on gas chromatography and FT-IR-analysis. The level of siloxane, hydrogen sulphide and halogens in biogas from a number of landfills and digesters in Finland is also presented. Moreover, the paper summarizes useable methods for siloxane abatement from biogas and gives an overview of the costs of biogas purification relating to power generation applications.
