Dynamic adsorption-desorption measurements of CO2 and CH 4 in amino-MIL-53(Al) were carried out in an adsorption breakthrough setup at different temperatures (303, 318, and 333 K) and pressures (1, 5, and 30 bar) to study the desorption dynamics of CO2 in amino-MIL(Al) as it plays an important role in the design of pressure swing adsorption (PSA) process for the upgrading of biogas. 13X zeolite was used as a reference material. The dynamic adsorption selectivity as well as the desorption efficiency of CO2 in both amino-MIL-53(Al) and 13X zeolite were calculated to evaluate the potential of amino-MIL-53(Al) for the upgrading of biogas by PSA process.
