Biogas in Africa as a Replacement for Fossil Fuels in Sub-Saharan Africa

Biogas in Africa can have a central role in the replacement of fossil fuels in Sub-Saharan Africa and in providing affordable and clean energy as identified in the 2030 UN SDG 7. So, despite many setbacks and our previously voiced very real concerns about transparency and accountability when things go wrong, we provide this updated […]

Failed African biogas-plant workers affected by Biogas Development Aid Contractor and/ or administrative shortcomings.

The Dark Side of Biogas Development Aid in Africa: A Call for Transparency

A number of researchers have been highlighting a dark side to the continuing use of biogas development aid in Africa. That lies in literally hundreds of unseen unreported failures of international development agency-funded biogas projects in Africa. But, the problem is far from limited to Africa and is happening in many other developing nations as […]

COMAH Regulations for Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Plants

Read this article for an understanding of the UK “COMAH Regulations for Anaerobic Digestion”  as they apply to Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Plants. The UK’s Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH)1 regulations are an important statutory instrument, overseeing all establishments that handle significant quantities of hazardous substances. With recent concerns expressed by the UK Health […]

CO2 scrubbing meme

How to Eliminate CO2 from Biogas? “Scrubbing” Explained

Here we explain how to Eliminate CO2 from Biogas, (or CO2 Scrubbing). Biogas can be upgraded to pipeline natural gas quality (biomethane) for use as a renewable natural gas, but as part of the upgrading process, it will be necessary to remove the carbon dioxide (CO2) from the biogas. This upgraded gas may also be […]

Rice Straw Biogas – How to Make Clean Fuel from Rice Crop Residues and Decarbonise

Biogas from rice straw (rice straw biogas production) is a proven technology that is still almost completely untapped. Around 300 million tonnes of waste rice straw is burnt in fields across Asia every year. Rice accounts for 48% of all greenhouse gas emissions from crops globally or 1,000 MT of CO2e/yr. Straw burning is producing […]
