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 […]

What are Biogas Plants – Explained with Examples

A biogas plant is where biogas is produced. Biogas is a gas mixture which is generated when organic compounds are fermented in the absence of air (anaerobic fermentation). This gas mixture is mainly made of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4). Methane is a combustible gas, which means it can be burned. It can be […]
