Summary: This study dealt with the capture of hydrogen sulfide from wine fermentation gas for use in the food industry. Gas chromatography was used to investigate the H2S sorption capacity of two commercial sorbents based on the combination of CuO-zeolite and CuO/MnOx, as well as the ability of the examined sorbents to pass aromatic substances. The best results were obtained with the CuO/MnOx-based sorbent, which had the highest overall sorption capacity and was also able to pass positive aromatics, such as higher alcohols and esters. The treated gas, which does not contain unwanted hydrogen sulphide, is suitable for use in the food industry.

Keywords: fermentation gas; hydrogen sulfide; sorbent
