Biogas Plant Substrate Mixing During Fermentation Creates a Stir with AD Plant Operators

The importance of “creating a stir” in the fermentation tanks of fully mixed bio-reactors for better biogas yields, and improved process stability, is becoming better understood by many AD plant clients around the globe, as more Anaerobic Digestion Plants are being built and the biogas industry matures. A scan of world news on this subject revealed that […]

What is Thermal Hydrolysis?

So you want to know, what is the thermal hydrolysis process? Thermal Hydrolysis is a chemical process in which the organic molecules (in the substrate/ feed material) are split into two parts by the addition of a molecule of water. The process forces the water molecules between the chemical bonds holding together large tissue molecules […]

How Anaerobic Digestion Processes Are Applied To Municipal Solid Waste For Biogas And Waste Diversion

Increasingly Anaerobic Digestion Processes are being Applied To Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) for the production of biogas as a renewable energy source, and also for Waste Diversion. Waste Diversion in this context means the diversion of waste (especially organic waste) away form landfill. Anaerobic digestion (AD) of MSW is often part of an MBT Plant […]

Pipeline Quality Gas from Anaerobic Digestion Goes Ahead in Québec

The acceptance of biogas upgrading to natural gas pipeline quality is rising, although in many locations the natural gas network owners remain sceptical about the consistency of the gas quality acheivable from current upgrading technology. As the article excerpt below shows, Québec’s municipal wastewater sludge Anaerobic Digestion Plant will be another producer of pipeline quality […]
