Agricultural Biogas Production and Use

Agricultural biogas produced in farm-based anaerobic digesters or covered lagoons can be used as a fuel source to power generator sets, or converted to compressed natural gas on-site or at third-party compressor stations through utility pipeline transmission. These processes help you save time and money and allow your facility to run much more efficiently. H2S removal systems are much more efficient and beneficial to your company's bottom line and convert agricultural biogas into a fuel source.


When used as a fuel source, the presence of H2S in the biogas will have a damaging effect on reciprocating or turbine engine life, increase maintenance costs, and shorten the time between rebuilds. Generator set manufacturers have begun setting limits on H2S concentrations as part of their conditions imposed on the user to maintain warranty coverage. This means that you need to partner with a company that understands the inherent challenges throughout the process. We work with you from design to implementation and are involved in every step in between. This allows your team to focus on their core work.


In order to meet sulfur dioxide emission limits on engine exhausts, H2S may need to be removed prior to combustion. In cases of extremely low general emission limits, where a catalytic converter is necessary, the H2S must be removed prior to combustion, or the life of the expensive catalyst will be reduced substantially. This means the system must be designed to meet the emission limits. Accordingly, all of our systems are designed to meet this need.


A well-designed system means that you won't be trying to make improvements on the fly just to get an okay result. Our systems work right from the start and provide amazing results. The impact that these systems have on the overall efficiency of the facilities in which they're in use is significant. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the positive impact your new disposal system will have on the optimization of your plant or agricultural firm.


If the biogas is converted to CNG, those specifications include very low limits on H2S. When the gas is transported via a utility pipeline to a CNG compression station, even lower pipeline specifications will have priority. Our team can help you prioritize your systems to ensure that you can create an efficient environment while meeting all regulations and industry standards. However you choose to approach your H2S process, we can provide systems and solutions that meet your needs. Unscheduled maintenance and repairs that take your systems offline will no longer be of concern once we've created the right system that's tailor-made for your facility's unique needs.

Typical User Conditions

Flow rates are typically low to mid-range, 100scfm to 1,000scfm, but H2S concentrations are generally high, in some cases up to 10,000ppmv. Importantly, concentrations can vary widely and seasonally according to water sources and the addition of other material to the digester. MVTechnologies H2SPlus and BioH2SPlus Hybrid systems deliver superior value in this application.


This superior value not only saves you time and money but also downtime. You'll require less maintenance and rebuilds when the removal systems in place are designed for reliability and efficiency. This will allow your team to keep your facility running at optimum production levels. Our systems not only provide a better process for your H2S removal but also help you save time and money. Our solutions are built to last and to do the job you need them to do. You can count on us to design, install, and implement H2S removal systems that work today and well into the future.
