New biosorbents from waste materials modified by green solvents for the purification of gaseous fuel streams.

Waste and its proper management are currently one of the greatest challenges of the modern world. Inappropriate waste management contributes to climate change and air pollution and directly affects many ecosystems and species. Landfills release methane, which is a powerful greenhouse gas contributing to climate change, as well as carbon dioxide and a wide variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Landfill gas can be converted into valuable biomethane and used as a fuel for energy production or as a transport fuel. Biogas requires the use of an appropriate method of effective biogas purification. To date, many works on the removal of carbon dioxide and other inorganic impurities from biogas have been published, but little attention has been paid to the removal of VOCs, which have the greatest impact on the biogas quality. The appropriate treatment method should not only be selective and effective but also meet all green engineering standards. Therefore, the aim of the project is to manage bio-waste and transform it into valuable biosorbents for the treatment of biogas streams. Moreover, the project includes the modification of biosorbents with the use of green solvents.
