Fish Silage – Landia Fish Ensiling Process Equipment Demand Rises

Fish Silage is in the news today, as Danish company announces a rising demand for their Landia Fish ensiling process equipment. If, like us, you had not heard of fish silage before, let us explain. It is defined as a liquid made from whole fish or parts of fish that are liquefied by the action of […]

Large Stainless Steel Tanks with Long Design Life for Wastewater Treatment

We were impressed to read the Press Release which is included below, about a German company (Stallkamp) which provides large stainless steel tanks with one of the longest design-life expectancies on the market, for Wastewater Treatment. As wastewater treatment and AD systems designers in the past, we have at times found it practically impossible to […]

Hydrophilic Jointed “Sealwall” Tanks Better Than Other Precast-Concrete or Steel, Say Whites Concrete

Whites recommend use of their Liquid Holding Tanks, and in particular their “Sealwall” Tanks as being better than steel, and even better than other jointing methods. After intensive in-house development, they point out that their Sealwall precast wall unit system is a robust, precast solution for storing water, with all the benefits of a highly efficient […]

Digester Cleaning – Purposes and Services

Digester Cleaning is fast becoming an established business sector within the Anaerobic digestion industry. In the UK half a dozen companies actively market their service specifically to the AD and biogas sector. The build-up of grit and debris in biogas plant reactors is all too often being found to negatively impact the operation of digesters, and severely […]

Concrete vs Steel Biogas Tanks for Anaerobic Digestion Plants

We recently received the following Press Release which inspired this article in which we discuss the relative merits of precast concrete vs steel biogas tanks for anaerobic digestion plants (i.e. Glass/ Epoxy Coated Steel Tanks). Quite possibly when you read the article which follows you will, like us, say. “That’s interesting. Why is it that […]

Feedstock storage for anaerobic digestion plants

How Biomass Feedstock Storage Can Be a Shocking Waste of Space

Biomass feedstock storage (for example installing a silage clamp) is a new subject which is rising rapidly in prominence, following the recent expansion in anaerobic digestion plants. Current low-cost designs can easily be a shocking waste of space. This fact is becoming clear now that there are now many plants in operation which their operators would like […]

Biogas Plant Substrate Mixing During Fermentation Creates a Stir with AD Plant Operators

The importance of “creating a stir” in the fermentation tanks of fully mixed bio-reactors for better biogas yields, and improved process stability, is becoming better understood by many AD plant clients around the globe, as more Anaerobic Digestion Plants are being built and the biogas industry matures. A scan of world news on this subject revealed that […]

The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan – Summary and Update

The UK Low Carbon Transition Plan of 2015 seems long gone. It is easy to forget that, despite the 2010 – 2015 UK Coalition Government’s lack of enthusiasm for green issues, the UK’s world leading CO2 emissions reduction legislation is still in force. It became law in the Climate Change Act 2008, and the high ideals embodied in […]

TEEP-cartoon-f

What is TEEP and How to Comply? Was the Question Ruffling Feathers at UK LWARB Event

Anaerobic Digestion plant owners and operators will be keen to understand TEEP for the effects it might have upon feedstock quality and quantity in the future which will be derived from municipal waste sources. There has been a tangible feeling concern developing within the UK’s waste collection and handling industry this last few months. In […]
