Electricity Demand Response and the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Industry

Electricity demand response is being adopted in many countries to help electricity companies cope with the fluctuations in supply which are inherent in most renewable energy technologies except for anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion with its high up-time and 24/7 power production capability, is not a part of this problem. In fact, anaerobic digestion, with its […]

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 […]

Article explains what is thermal hydrolysis

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 […]

Bio Thermic Digester (BTD) Gains Acceptance And May Become Major Competitor To Anaerobic Digestion

Bio Thermic Digester (BTD) is the term for an innovative type of industrial-scale biological high temperature-digester which uses Aerobic Extremophilic Bacteria to achieve a remarkably high level of mass reduction, and has been launched by waste treatment specialist Advetec. The technology is understood to be capable of rapidly processing significantly high volumes of organic municipal waste, […]
