Regenerative Siloxane Removal Systems Developed by Anka
What is Siloxane?
Siloxane is a compound found in biogas originating from domestic solid waste, food waste and
wastewater treatment sludge. It is especially caused by wastes originating from cosmetics, food additives and detergents.
As ANKA, we are proud to have managed to manufacture an industrially viable biogas siloxane removal system as a result of the R&D studies carried out with the support of the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology.
Thanks to its modularity it can be easily scaled to any capacity with very low pressure loss which is very important for long-term energy savings. The system consists of two filters containing the filter media used for siloxane removal.
These filters work in sequence. When a filter reaches its full adsorption capacity, the system automatically activates the other tank which is already regenerated and ready. Thus, the gas engines are continuously supplied with clean gas.
Siloxane Removal System Specifications

Benefits of Siloxane Removal System
As a result of installing a Siloxane removal system in your plant, you get profits from many cost items. These are:
- Labor costs during siloxane-induced maintenance,
- Part replacement costs consisting of wear caused by siloxane,
- Production losses in engine stops (down time) during siloxane-induced maintenance,
- Power losses due to working at partial load as a result of the knock caused by silicone deposits
