EU renewable energy roadmap will boost the need for online monitoring of siloxanes in biogas

European Union regulation will substantially increase the use of renewable energy as a source for heat and energy production. Furthermore, the EU requires Member States to significantly increase the use of biogas in the transport sector, from a share of 0.2% in 2022 to 3.5% in 2030. To increase the use of biogas and biomethane has created a need to ensure gas quality by measuring impurities such as siloxanes, ammonia,…
