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 […]

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 […]

Biogas Production Process Dairy Farmers Selling Herds to Biodigest Grass

Biogas production from grass is a proven viable process. Today (2019) many UK dairy farmers have not only considered selling their herds, they’ve done just that. Instead of cattle for milk, they are simply growing grass for direct feed into an anaerobic digestion plant, and storing silage for winter use. This makes good sense in […]

Pipeline Quality Gas and the Benefits of Biomethane Gas to Grid

The acceptance of biogas upgrading technology which purifies raw biogas to Pipeline Quality Gas (natural gas pipeline quality) and enables AD plant operators to inject biomethane gas to grid is rising. Benefits of Upgrading to Pipeline Quality Gas Once biomethane gas to grid is accomplished, the biogas plant operator gains not only from a higher […]

Anaerobic Digestion in the US Shows Growth Despite Low Electricity Prices

Anaerobic Digestion in the US is expanding despite no subsidies, in most cases. Many opinion-formers suggest that Anaerobic Digestion technology needs strong subsidies to have a chance of being developed to meet its potential. However, US AD site “Biocycle”, has posted an article which suggests the contrary. It says that’s not the case in the […]
