Underpinning green energy: Traceable reference standards and methods for the measurement of total silicon in biogas

Siloxane impurities within biogas can cause extensive damage to gas processing equipment if not removed effectively. A European specification is being developed that will impose a maximum limit value on the total silicon content of biogas in order for it to be safely utilised. This requirement for accurate measurements of total silicon at low amount fractions has driven advances in measurement methods as part of a European project.
