Global developments cause a lack of energy and the depletion of fossil fuel supplies that require serious attention and find solutions to solve them. The high price of fuel also makes it difficult for people to obtain the fuel needed by vehicles to make it easier to fulfill their needs. One alternative energy that can be used is biogas from cow dung. This study aims to determine the effect of flow rate on the purification process using coconut shell ash as an adsorbent on the chemical composition of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) contained in biogas. The method used in this study is an experimental study, the flow rate in the biogas purification process with variations in the flow rate of 1.16 liters/minute, 2.32 liters/minute, 3.48 liters/minute, 4.64 liters/minute, and 5.80 liters/minute. Biogas produced from the purification process with a flow rate variation of 5.80 liters/minute produces the highest chemical composition compared to other flow rates, namely with a chemical composition of CH4 of 40.95% and CO2 of 34.89%.
