The Hot Bacteria Used in Bio Thermic Digesters

Bio Thermic Digester (BTD) Gains Acceptance And May Become Major Competitor To Anaerobic Digestion

Bio Thermic Digester (BTD) is the term for an innovative type of industrial-scale biological high temperature-digester which uses Aerobic Extremophilic Bacteria to achieve a remarkably high level of mass reduction, and has been launched by waste treatment specialist Advetec. The technology is understood to be capable of rapidly processing significantly high volumes of organic municipal waste, […]

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 […]

Anaerobic Digester Cost – Manure Management Projects On-Farm

For the right farm business or operator of any process which produces as a by-product a consistent organic waste, an anaerobic digester producing biogas coupled to a generator, can be an excellent long-term investment. The methane biogas will cost less as a fuel than a diesel generator or a standard natural gas generator. The best […]

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 […]
