Adsorption storage on highly microporous activated carbon is the most promissing low-pressure alternative for storing natural gas. A detailed mathematical model has been developed in order to study the impact of natural gas composition on cycling efficiency of adsorption storage systems. Results show that net deliverable capacity is substantially decreased by heavy hydrocarbons which are present in small amounts in natural gas. Economical means of removing them from the gas stream before charge need to be identified and evaluated.
