Zoe D Ziaka, Savvas Vasileiadis: Reactor-membrane permeator process for hydrocarbon reforming and water gas-shift reactions. July 18, 2000: US06090312 (108 worldwide citation)

New process designs are presented for reforming reactions of steam with hydrocarbons (such as methane, natural gas, light hydrocarbon feedstocks with one to four carbon atoms in each molecule), also for the water gas shift reaction that is of steam with carbon monoxide; also for carbon dioxide refor ...

John V O Brien, Arthur S Holmes, Richard B Hopewell: Process for the separation of landfill gas. Koch Process Systems, Richard P Crowley, July 21, 1987: US04681612 (92 worldwide citation)

A recycle process for the separation of landfill gas containing a wide variety of impurities into a carbon dioxide product stream and a fuel-grade-pressurized methane product stream, the process providing for the removal of both the impurities and the carbon dioxide in a cryogenic column as a bottom ...

In the recovery of methane and carbon dioxide from landfill gas (LFG) a selective adsorption system is employed having a pretreat section operated in temperature swing adsorption mode (TSA) to remove water and trace hydrocarbon contaminants, in flow communication with a pressure swing adsorption sec ...

Stanley W Zison: Landfill gas recovery method. Getty Synthetic Fuels, Gordon L Peterson, April 17, 1984: US04442901 (74 worldwide citation)

A method of collecting landfill gas from a landfill comprising providing a porous collector in the landfill having a relatively broad collection zone in the path of migrating landfill gas, controlling the pressure in the collector to induce the landfill gas near the collector to flow into the collec ...

J Richard Watson, Beryl Koplin: Process and apparatus for purification of landfill gases. Bio Gas Development, Hurt Richardson Garner Todd & Cadenhead, October 22, 1991: US05059405 (72 worldwide citation)

A process and apparatus for removing the impurities from a gas stream produced from a landfill such that essentially pure carbon dioxide and methane is recovered. After the landfill gas is mechanically dewatered, the gas is filtered of particulate solids and aerosols and purified by removing sulfur ...

A method of withdrawing landfill gas from a landfill without drawing air into the landfill comprising providing a well in the landfill and withdrawing landfill gas from the well at a plurality of different withdrawal rates. The pressure at a selected region within the landfill is detected while the ...

Lawrence A Siwajek, W Jeffrey Cook, William R Brown: Landfill gas recovery. Acrion Technologies, Pearne Gordon McCoy & Granger, December 1, 1998: US05842357 (64 worldwide citation)

A process for concentrating and recovering methane and carbon dioxide from landfill gas includes absorption of commonly occurring pollutants using a reduced amount of carbon dioxide absorbent which itself may be an in situ derived and recoverable constituent. Separated methane may be concentrated in ...
