Analysis of VOCs in Biogas

Analysis of VOCs in Biogas

Natural gas is generally odourless and easily detected through the presence of odourants such as THT (tetrahydothiophen), Gasodor S-Free (methyl- and ethylacrylates) and TBM (tert-Butylthiol). The presence of odourants is important for detection of leaks which can be a safety issue. Biogas produced by fermentation of organic sources contains volatile organic compounds (VOC) either from […]
