Quick Test for Inhibitors in Biogas Substrates – New Weltec Biogas Inhibition Test Progress

A quick test for identifying inhibitors in Biogas Substrates is badly needed by the commercial biogas plant industry. Existing methods such as the Diary Farmer’s “Aerobic Plate Count” inhibitor test are not directly applicable to anaerobic biogas conditions, so a New Biogas Inhibition Test Method is badly needed. A major biogas plant systems provider WELTEC […]

Anaerobic Digestion of Manure – Technology Breakthrough! – AD Plant Productivity Doubled In Tests

Anaerobic Digestion of Manure: There has been a breakthrough in the throughput of manure-fed AD Plants! A new pre-treatment process development by Ductor™, raises new hope for super-efficient on-farm manure fed biogas plants. The Problem With Anaerobic Digestion of Manure Almost all organic materials such as manure are good feedstock materials for biogas production. Farm manures, […]

What is a Biogas Reactor and Biogas Slowdown

For those that ask “What is a biogas reactor” the definition we use is as follows: The biogas reactor within a biogas plant (anaerobic digestion plant) is the vessel or vessels in which anaerobic treatment technology produces two main products. These are: (a) a digested slurry (digestate) that can be used as a fertiliser, and […]

Anaerobic Digestion UK Capacity Enough to Power 1 Million Homes – Future Doubts Continue

In the UK anaerobic digestion capacity has grown rapidly to the point that the energy supply is large enough to have significance (and could power a million UK  homes if that was it’s sole use), but unexpectedly steep government subsidy reduction has thrown the future of the industry back into doubt. This was the overwhelming […]

Farm Digesters And Reduction Of Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Farm Digesters And The Important Role of Biogas in Reduction Of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Agriculture is the largest source of methane emissions in Britain, adding the equivalent of over 17m tonnes of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere every year. A very large proportion of that methane comes from livestock, especially cattle. Anaerobic Digesters cannot prevent […]
