Anaerobic Digestion in California

Anaerobic Digestion in California

CalRecycle is in effect encouraging Anaerobic Digestion in California with the development of green technologies, of which the most important is anaerobic digestion. The state body is encouraging technologies like AD that divert organic waste from landfills, and comply with the states’ Global Warming Solutions Act. The act calls for the reduction of greenhouse gases […]

Weltec Biopower Extends Existing AD Plant in France After 2016 French Feed-in Tariff Extension

Weltec Biopower has once again announced that it is extending one of their previously constructed biogas plants, at an Anaerobic Digestion Plant in France (Iffendic). This follows our previous article when, in September 2014, we wrote here in this blog, that biogas plant designer and construction contractor Weltec Biopower, had been awarded the 1.1 MW Piddlehinton […]

Anaerobic Digestion in Wastewater Treatment – UASBs EGSBs and Staging

A well-proven Anaerobic Digestion Wastewater Treatment method is the process of decomposing organic matter of municipal sewage sludge, anaerobically under operational control. Wastewaters which will Benefit from Anaerobic Digestion Treatment Anaerobic digestion is an ideal process for treating some polluted wastewaters. The methanogenic archaea populations play an indispensable role in anaerobic wastewater treatment. By “digesting” the organic […]

Egg Shaped Anaerobic Digesters – Strange Looking Tanks Explained

Egg Shaped Anaerobic Digesters; Enormous eggs! Whatever next! Have you ever wondered what those huge “strangely other-world like” not quite “spherical” tanks are that you sometimes see? They are anaerobic digestion process digesters, and very useful they are too! They make sewage sludge much more wholesome and in particular they reduce sludge odour, but best […]

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 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 […]

UK Brexit to Hit UK On-Farm Anaerobic Digestion While US AD Grows

The UK Brexit from the EU is about to hit UK on-farm anaerobic digestion. What has been a growing success story for the UK is being predicted to quickly become a victim of the UK government’s plans for the exit of the nation from the European Union. Other sectors, such as the anaerobic digestion of […]

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 […]
