    Abstract

    Operational study of a biogas upgrading plant with cleaning and methane (CH4) enrichment has been presented in this study. Parametric study was conducted to investigate the effect of variation of process conditions for single stage without recycle (SSWR) and double stage with permeate recycle (DSPR) on product purity, CHU recovery and compression power requirement. In the study, achieving high CH4 recovery and product purity simultaneously could not be attained in SSWR configuration. The performance of DSPR yielded a better result but with higher membrane area and compression power. DSPR configuration achieved high CH4 recovery and purity at increasing feed pressure, selectivity and feed flow. The CHU losses increased in both configurations as %CCh increased in the feed. DSPR configuration is considered the best configuration due to the end use of the product, as vehicular fuel, which requires high product purity.
