Biogas from Landfills? A permanent fixture in today’s world, landfills typically have been open pit repositories for local waste, and in some cases, retired, and covered. However, the biological reactions in these landfills create a marketable biogas that can be useful to the owner. However, the consideration of taking a raw biogas from landfills and converting it to electrical energy or Renewable Natural Gas is fraught with many stumbling blocks. First, and foremost, the raw biogas can contain well in excess of 5000 ppmv of Hydrogen Sulfide. Since the biogas is saturated, this creates a significant corrosion issue for handling the biogas, and if not removed, yields sulfur dioxide in the exhaust of the energy conversion unit. Next, the inclusion of siloxanes, which are almost always a part of the biogas are even more aggressive, as they evolve into damaging sand type powders in the engines. Lee Enterprises experts in biogas recovery offer solutions for treating these products that make their use a viable outcome, as opposed to just flaring the biogas.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms certainly have experts in biofuels and renewable biofuels like bio ethanol, biodiesel, and renewable diesel, and the more common areas like biomaterials, biomass, biomass power, feedstocks, and biotechnology. In these larger consulting groups, one will also find energy consultants in some specialty area like other biofuels like algae biofuels, aviation/biojet fuels, ethanol, cellulosic ethanol, advanced biofuels, biodiesel, renewable diesel, renewable natural gas, renewable and biochemicals, biogas, syngas, biochar, bio coals, biobutanol, pyrolysis oil, producer gas, and wood pellets.
