What is Biogas? A Beginners Guide – Home to Commercial Digester Systems

We answer the question: “What is Biogas?” Biogas is generated during anaerobic digestion (AD) when microorganisms break down (by eating it) organic materials in the absence of air (or oxygen). Biogas is mostly methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), with very small amounts of water vapor and other gases. The carbon dioxide and other gases […]

Biogas Tax Credits Announced for US AD Project Starts This Year

Biogas Tax Credits have been passed by Congress for Anaerobic Digestion (AD) projects which start development this year. At last the US seems to be beginning on the road toward reducing the imbalance in automatic tax subsidies still paid to the oil, coal and gas industries. Farmers across the US have a surplus of organic […]

Climate Emergency Declaration: Biogas Can Abate 12% of GHG Emissions by 2030

Climate Emergency Declaration by governments and communities is of little or no use unless it results in an action plan, so the Biogas and Climate Change Commitment Declaration must be unique. In this a group of highly respected organisations has declared that, used to its fullest, anaerobic digestion and biogas can abate 12% of global […]

Green Biogas – UK Green Investment Bank Backing Is Proof

We have said many times that the anaerobic digestion process makes green biogas, but where is the proof of that? We say that not only is it green in the sense of it being an environmentally friendly form of energy and fertilizer production, but it also has many other “green” environmental benefits. That green biogas […]

Biogas from Fish Waste – VIBES Award for Waste Salmon AD Plant

Producing biogas from fish waste might not seem like a big deal to mainlanders, but it truly is a big deal on an island with a lot of salmon farms. The alternative of placing this waste in a landfill would go against all Scottish, UK and EU policy at a time when climate change and […]

Gobar Gas the Benefits of Gas from Dung

Gobar gas is also known as “Bio gas” or simply “biogas”. Its main component is animal dung (gobar – India) along with some other organic matter like dead remains of plants and animals. It can be used to cooking, electricity generating and heating purposes. It is proving to be a very cost-effective and environment-friendly alternative fuel […]

Biogas Production Process Dairy Farmers Selling Herds to Biodigest Grass

Biogas production from grass is a proven viable process. Today (2019) many UK dairy farmers have not only considered selling their herds, they’ve done just that. Instead of cattle for milk, they are simply growing grass for direct feed into an anaerobic digestion plant, and storing silage for winter use. This makes good sense in […]

Mass extinction in 2100 - Decarbonizing through biogas production.

Reduce Mass Extinction in 2100 by Enabling Biogas Decarbonization Now

Concerned about accelerating mass extinction in 2100, and subsequently?  Read this to find out how maximising biogas production now is an essential tool towards the decarbonization of Europe. By decarbonising quickly the benefits accrue over the years and provide much more benefit in reduced temperature rises, than by doing this later. Read the following Press […]
