Biogas Plant Grit Removal System Extracts Digester Grit and Silt from AD Plants

Sponsored Post: Biogas Plant Grit removal was seldom built-into first generation AD Plants. Ever since the first of the current generation of anaerobic digestion plants were commissioned over 15 years ago, a recurrent problem has been the gradual accumulation of inert materials in digester tanks. If it gets into digesters it reduces the reactive volume […]

US Dairy Farm Anaerobic Digestion – Rare US Vanderhaak Dairy Case Study

By 1945 my Grandpa had started milking about 500 milk cows. Nowadays, plus all our young stock we have about a thousand cattle. The dairy biogas plant processes the manure from those, plus food waste which we are paid a tipping fee for. Traditional Slurry Lagoons Produce an Alarmingly High Methane Output and are a […]

Renewable Natural Gas Transport – Use of Biogas for Vehicle Fuel

There are many benefits in the use of natural gas transport, even if the natural gas source is fossil fuel based. That’s because of the low-carbon emissions of this fuel and the clean burning characteristics of methane (natural gas). Currently, taxation on this form of fuel is very low, which for the moment is another […]

Biogas Compressor – Purposes, Design and Suppliers

We thought that we would write about biogas compressors, their purposes, design requirements and suppliers. It is a product which is quite new and there is a growing market for these specialized compressors. There is an increasing demand for greater sophistication in the design of biogas plants, now that the many benefits from anaerobic digestion are […]

Improving Biogas Plant Efficiency – Why Ferrous Chloride Not Ferric Chloride is Best

When seeking to improve biogas plant efficiency understanding why Ferrous Chloride Not Ferric Chloride is Best an be important. At the start of my recent enquiry, the expert from Lukeneder helped by explaining the differences between Ferrous Choride and Ferric Chloride. I think that my reaction of confusion, as I looked at the Lukeneder brochure just before that, […]

How to Reduce Methane Emissions? – By Our Support of Agricultural Biogas Says Obama

In a very welcome move, the White House is backing farm biogas production from manure and other feedstocks, as a way to reduce national methane emissions which are implicated as a significant source of climate change. The US dairy industry not only came to the same conclusion in 2009, but has been working toward its […]

What is Biogas and Has It Been Hijacked By Big Business?

So, “What is Biogas”? The term ‘biogas’ is commonly used to refer to a gas which has been produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. The gases methane, hydrogen and carbon monoxide can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen and the resultant energy release allows biogas to be used […]
