Farm Methane Digesters – What to Know About Cow Power

Farm methane digesters are large tanks, or covered lagoons, where organic materials from the dairy farm are stored and broken down by bacteria and organisms called archaea to make renewable methane gas. These are also known as anaerobic digesters: facilities that harness the power of methane produced by decomposing cow waste and convert it into […]

Electricity Generation from Biogas

Electricity generation from biogasĀ is not new. There are already millions of biogas plants in operation throughout the world and many provide electricity. The biogas generators needed to produce electricity from biogas are available at all scales of output. Plus, the technology to clean up the raw biogas before it is combusted is available, tried and […]

Misplaced Food v Fuel Fears – Germany May Unnecessarily Restrict Crop-based Biofuels

In response to food vs. fuel concerns, Germany intends to limit crop-based biofuels. The following article was first published by Fastmarkets in their Energy Census [RE]fuel Report: The main takeaway from this is that politicians and the general public alike both assume that most biogas is made from crops which would otherwise become food. This […]

Biomethane buses Reading UK an advantage of biogas biomethane illustrated.

Decarbonising Transport is Biggest of all Advantages of Biogas

The advantages of biogas are many and elsewhere on this blog we list them, but until now the biggest advantage of biogas (in Decarbonising Transport especially when “upgraded” to biomethane) has been waiting to be discovered. Globally there is no large and successful city that is not suffering air pollution from the ever-rising numbers of […]

Biomethane Plant Advantages – The Growth in Biogas Upgrading Purification

There is a biomethane plant biogas upgrading purification revolution taking place. The advantages of biomethane are so great that most new anaerobic digestion plants throughout Europe, no longer export electricity. They sell biomethane instead. Instead, they take biogas production one stage further. They make their raw biogas as near clean as makes no difference by […]

Use of Biomethane Decarbonises Heavy Vehicles Now – Why Wait?

Today a new report has been announced which adds to the chorus of voices saying that the UK government and business community should promote the use of biomethane (purified biogas/ renewable compressed natural gas rCNG) for its ability to decarbonises all types of heavy vehicles now. We say: “Why would anyone wait for an as-yet […]

Biomethane Versus Natural Gas – Demand Grows for Renewable Biogas

I was recently asked to comment on the use of “biomethane” vs “natural gas”, almost as if the two were in competition with each other. This, at one and the same time, both surprised me and impressed me. The available quantity of supply of biomethane (renewable natural gas) is very small compared with natural gas […]
