3 Anaerobic Sludge Digestion Case Studies

These three anaerobic sludge digestion case studies explain how water utility companies are embracing the anaerobic digestion process as their method of choice for the treatment of the vast quantities of solid sludge materials which they aerate and settle out of the sewage entering their sewage works every day. While doing that they produce a […]

What is Biogas? An Introduction to a Sustainable Energy Source

In another article in our series on “What is Biogas?”, we provide an introduction to this gas as a sustainable energy source. What is biogas? A Definition Biogas is the methane-rich bacterial waste product of the anaerobic decomposition of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas is a renewable energy source that is produced […]

How to Improve Sewage Sludge Treatment – A Water Industry AD Plant Performance Review

Anaerobic digestion has been shown to be the best technology for treating wastewater from sewage systems globally and is increasingly being used in sewage treatment. The properties of sludge can be modified during anaerobic digestion and produce biogas as a result of the treatment, as well as several positive effects on sludge management. Anaerobic digestion […]

Anaerobic Digestion vs Fermentation

In this case, before comparing the two ostensibly different processes Anaerobic Digestion vs Fermentation, the question arises whether they are not the same process that has simply been approached from different directions by separate scientific disciplines? This could explain the use of two terms where one would suffice but would we be correct to say […]

Metal Fabrication: The Basics of Precision Machining Essential to the AD Industry

Stay with us while we look at metal fabrication as a fundamental technology, one of the basics of precision machining and also essential to the AD Industry. This is one of our occasional articles in which we look at the basic foundations of current technology. Without modern metal fabrication techniques such as metal stamping services […]

ADBA Calls for Ban on Russian Natural Gas Imports

The UK could ban Russian Natural Gas Imports and the gas demand could be directly replaced with home-grown biomethane within the next four years. Isn’t it time to stop talking about what can be done to halt Putin, and take action? Read the Press Release below and provide a comment if you support this view: […]

Adapt or Die – Climate Change Adaptation for the Biogas Industry

Adapt or Die is all about Climate Change Adaptation and it will be an essential part of government and business strategy across all industries including for anaerobic digestion and for the biogas industry. In all the discussions about climate change around COP26 what seems to have been forgotten is that our climate is changing and […]

Veolia and Anaerobic Digestion – Global Waste Company Embraces Circularity

In this article, we look at how Veolia and anaerobic digestion (AD) are progressing together, as an example of how one global waste company is building their investment in biogas technology as it embraces circularity across the business. This post is a compilation of our research, based upon the information provided by the company across […]

Large Stainless Steel Tanks with Long Design Life for Wastewater Treatment

We were impressed to read the Press Release which is included below, about a German company (Stallkamp) that provides large stainless steel tanks with one of the longest design-life expectancies on the market, for Wastewater Treatment. As wastewater treatment and AD systems designers in the past, we have at times found it practically impossible to […]
