  • Patent number: 10780399
    Abstract: Membrane cell stack arrangement and method of manufacturing such a membrane cell stack arrangement. The arrangement has a housing (2) having a central axis, and a stack of membrane cells (4), each membrane cell (6) being arranged inside the housing (2) with a major surface (6a) of the membrane cell (6) oriented substantially perpendicular to the central axis. Each membrane cell (6) has a corner recess (12) between each two adjacent sides of at least four sides (10a-d). Sealing compartments (14) are provided by corner recesses (12) of adjacent membrane cells of the stack of membrane cells (4) in co-operation with a part of an inner surface (2a) of the housing (2).

  • Patent number: 10472582
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a process and apparatus for removing hydrogen sulfide from a gas stream comprising biogas. In accordance with the invention the gas stream is contacted with an oxidizing agent present in a vessel, whereby said hydrogen sulfide is oxidized into elemental sulfur and said oxidizing agent is reduced, wherein oxygen containing gas is also fed to said vessel, wherein said oxygen oxidizes at least part of said reduced oxidizing agent.

  • Publication number: 20180118640
    Abstract: The invention is directed to the purification of gas streams comprising methane and hydrophobic pollutants. The invention provides a method for purifying a gas stream comprising methane and one or more hydrophobic pollutants comprising the steps of contacting the gas stream with a lean liquid stream comprising micelles of a surfactant or a separate surfactant phase. The resulting rich liquid stream comprises at least part of the hydrophobic pollutants. By subsequently changing the temperature of the rich liquid stream, a system of a pollutants-poor phase and a pollutants-rich phase is obtained. These phases are optionally separated and from the aqueous stream the lean liquid stream comprising micelles and/or surfactant can be regenerated.
