Removing HS and CO from natural gas can help to reduce microbial populations in the gas stream. The removal of HS and CO can be performed using several different methods, including adsorption, thermal desorption, and membrane distillation.

Adsorption is the most common method used to remove HS and CO from natural gas. Adsorbents are used to trap the HS and CO molecules in the adsorbent material. The adsorbent is then heated to a high temperature and the HS and CO are thermally desorbed from the adsorbent material.
Thermal desorption is another method that can be used to remove HS and CO from natural gas. This method involves heating the gas stream containing the HS and CO molecules until they are thermally desorbed from the gas stream.
Membrane distillation is a last method that can be used to remove HS and CO from natural gas. This method involves separating the gas stream into different layers based on their molecular weight. The lighter molecular weight gasses are allowed to pass through a membrane while the heavier molecular weight gasses are retained in the membrane.
The concentration of HS and CO in the gas stream can be determined by measuring the amount of light that penetrates the membrane. The cost of removing these contaminants from natural gas is very high, however, and therefore it would be desirable to provide a method that does not require expensive equipment.The inventors have recognized that HS and CO are chemically similar compounds that form together as a molecule known as dimer difluoride (DF), which has a molecular weight of about 180.
