This work was performed to select and design an upgrading facility with adsorption columns for a medium scaled (200 m3/hr) biogas plant by using PROSIM as a simulation tool. Moreover, India's current policy developments were analyzed to develop a futuristic scenario for Biogas technology in India.

  • Adsorption columns were designed

  • Simulated using PROSIM, and calculations were performed using Matlab and Microsoft Excel
