This thesis explores the separation of carbon dioxide from biogas, with emphasis on its environmental and technological aspects. Firstly, the impact of greenhouse gases on climate change is analysed, highlighting the urgent need for sustainable energy sources such as biogas. In addition, the current research/study delve into the composition, production and potential uses of biogas highlighting its role as a renewable energy source. An important emphasis is placed on CO2 separation technologies, analysing the different methods and their effectiveness. The environmental impact of biogas use is also studied, in particular in terms of reducing dependence on fossil fuels. The last chapters present the experimental results of the research and compare them with corresponding results from the literature.In conclusion, it provides a comprehensive analysis of the separation of carbon dioxide from biogas, a crucial step for the exploitation of biogas as a sustainable energy source. Through an in-depth study, we found that effective CO2 separation significantly improves the quality and usability of biogas, contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the decarbonization of fossil fuels. Investigation of CO2 separation technology using gas hydrates has revealed promising methods that offer both efficiency and environmental compatibility.Looking ahead, the research paves the way for further innovation in CO2 separation technology, supporting continued progress in maximising the ecological and practical benefits of biogas. The outcomes of this thesis make important contributions to the renewable energy sector and offer a blueprint for future research and development in biogas technology.
