Stallkamp Builds It’s First Mega Tall Digester CSTRs (IFAT)

“Mega” Tall Digester CSTRs or the claim to “very large tall Continuously Stirred Tank Reactors” (CSTRs) as made by Stallkamp in their Press Release below, may sound a little over-the-top, but it makes a very valid point.  They may well be the first of many new style tall-tanks. Certainly, as anaerobic digestion technology advances, the […]

How to Start Anaerobic Digestion of Plant Biomass – Biogas Pilot Trial Step by Step

How to start anaerobic digestion of plant biomass (waste organic materials you have available to you for free or at minimal cost) with an A.D. pilot plant experiment, sometimes called a Lab Trial. The following is the standard way research in water treatment processes has been carried out ever since the scientific method was invented […]

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 […]

Shale Gas in the UK: Not Needed Just Move Funding to Biogas Production

Shale Gas in UK is halted! But, it’s not a problem! Why? The UK government has been subsidizing Shale Gas in the UK with massive tax breaks on investment in the idea. But now, due to unexpected earthquake activity directly initiated deep underground wherever there have been fracking experiments; all exploration has been stopped indefinitely. […]

Climate Change Emergency UK – ADBA’s General Election Manifesto for Net Zero Emissions

Solving the Climate Change Emergency UK will require urgent action after the new parliament returns. ADBA (the UK’s Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association)  has the technology to act quickly on this, so here are ADBA’s General Election Manifesto measures which could help the UK achieve Net Zero Emissions. Whether you agree that the UK is […]

Anaerobic Digestion Regulations – UK Environmental Protection, Animal By-products, Duty of Care, Health and Safety

Anaerobic Digestion Regulations surprisingly, don’t exist in the UK. At least not all neatly bundled into a single government act or rule book. Instead, AD Plant operators must comply with a range of statutory requirements (“Laws” to you and me). The four which must be tackled once Planning Permission has been obtained are as follows: […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Ugly Truth About Ignoring the Benefits of a Circular Economy

Ignoring the Benefits of a Circular Economy in an attempt to sign a trade deal with the US, while ditching UK alignment with the EU, would have ugly outcomes for future generations.  The circular economy is the only hope for future generations for whom the current generation must return to using no more than the […]

Changes in UK Small-Scale AD Subsidies – Reductions to New Applicants

This is for those interested in UK Small-Scale AD Subsidies. Small-Scale AD Subsidies – Government Confirms New Feed-in -Tariff rates “The government also confirmed that a degression mechanism will be introduced for Anaerobic Digestion (AD), wind and hydro technologies from April 2014 in line with uptake, rather than the initial proposal of a minimum five […]
