Basic Anaerobic Digestion – How Does Anaerobic Digestion Work?

Anaerobic digestion (AD) is in-truth an unhelpful name for the basic age-old natural process that produces renewable energy as heat and biogas, and natural crop fertilizer. That is basic anaerobic digestion, and how the AD (or fermentation) process works. The following video is a very popular video which explains how AD works: A common challenge […]

Optimized biogas production would reduce climate change plus many other benefits.

Biogas Potential is Too Small to Make a Difference – Myth Busted! WBA Report Shows

How large is the biogas potential in terms of energy output? Can there ever be enough anaerobic digestion plants to really make enough of a difference to significantly reduce global carbon emissions? The answer is : Yes! Biogas’ potential is substantial. Over the years many have even said that; “It’s not possible to make enough […]

What is Renewable Energy and How Does It Work

There is a simple answer to;”What is renewable energy?“. It is energy which is self replenishing. Many people would say that it is also sustainable energy, which implies that in accordance with many definitions of sustainability it should be self replenishing within a generation, so that the present generation does not rob energy resources from […]

Digester Tank Mixers – Landia Joins Exhibitors Offering Improved Efficiency up +30%

Landia has been successfully installing digester tank mixers, namely their GasMix product, since we last posted an article about our sponsor’s product in the summer of 2014. Now Landia has joined exhibitors offering improved water industry anaerobic digestion plant efficiencies of up +30%, from the use of their products and expertise. That’s quite a pledge to […]

Xergi Biogas Plants Completed for Bernard Matthews and Others

Xergi Biogas Plants: By the Xergi Biogas company, Denmark’s market leading supplier of AD technology has been building a successful biogas business in the UK, and around the world, for over 6 years, with multiple plants now either operational, or in construction. Nowadays, new Xergi biogas plants are announced every few months. As you can see […]

Biowaste Feedstock Availability Set to Rise – EU Parliament Report

There is nothing like an EU target imposed in all member states to produce additional biowaste feedstock supplies, which are the life-blood for anaerobic digestion plant operations. Like it or lump it, and as we know, the UK doesn’t like it and will presumably be out before this comes into force. However, there are new, higher, […]

Biomethane Explosion – The Rapid Growth in Biogas Purification

There is a biomethane biogas purification explosion taking place. The rapid growth in biogas purification is a development which will help nations to de-carbonize their energy use, especially in transport fuel, and it is a very welcome recent phenomenon. At this blog we have often said that anaerobic digestion has great potential, but until 2 to […]

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 […]

5 Things You Should Know Before Designing the Best Biogas Plant

To help our readers to create the best biogas plant design, the list below contains our top 5 things that we think new anaerobic digestion plant developers should know about before designing a biogas Plant: Feed Material Choice So, you have a potential site for a biogas plant, and as in most cases, as the […]

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 […]
