Advanced Conversion Technologies to Extract Energy from Waste – AD Rivals?

Advanced Conversion Technologies is the term for technologies such as gasification and pyrolysis. These could become competitors with Anaerobic Digestion. In fact, a number of innovative advanced, high temperature processes for Energy from Waste/ Waste to Energy, are beginning to emerge from the far east. These may become more efficient (after further development), than conventional […]

3 Reasons Why UK Biomethane Producers Should Watch Bio-fuel Market Prices Closely

Like it or not, biogas and especially biomethane producers should start to take a keen interest in Bio-fuel Market Prices, and here is our list of 3 reasons why. “UK Biomethane producers and potential “biogas-plant to biomethane upgraders”, should be watching bio-fuel market prices closely.” That’s because many foresee big gains in the prices they […]

Biomethane Explosion – The Rapid Growth in Biogas Purification

There is a biomethane biogas purification explosion taking place. The rapid growth in biogas purification is a development which will help nations to de-carbonize their energy use, especially in transport fuel, and it is a very welcome recent phenomenon. At this blog we have often said that anaerobic digestion has great potential, but until 2 to […]
