As a result, the sulfur does not

The required amount oft THIOCOMP®
is to determine as follows:
1 Kg THIOCOMP®
binds ca. 300 g sulfur
1 Kg sulfur are bound from ca. 3,5 Kg THIOCOMP®
the approximate 1 : 1 ratio between diluted sulfur in digestate
and gaseous sulfur in biogas the needed amount of THIOCOMP®
be calculated with our:
The proportional-factor is preset as "2.0" but can be
altered due to empirical values.
give the H2S-instead
of the total sulfur content in the biogas. The conversion is to
be performed as follows:
sulfur-content = H2S-content
So mostly the
deviation between S and H2S
will be negligible.
What does my sulfur removal cost?
effective component of THIOCOMP®
comparable products is iron.To calculate the costs for iron-based
sulfur removal the absolute iron content of the products
must be considered, because water, loam etc. do not
support the sulfur removal capacity.Due to his high total iron content
is cheaper than most of the comparable products
and saves costs for transport and storage.
