Three materials are directly compared for their potential for biogas purification: 13X zeolite, microporous activated carbon and mesoporous activated carbon impregnated with polyethyleneimine. The amine-impregnated material shows the highest selectivity for CO2 over CH4 but this should be balanced by the higher operating temperature required. All three materials could be used for biogas purification with the advantages and diasadvantages clearly presented.
