Biomethane Production: Sweden Leads with Schmack Carbotech Plant – Plus One in France

This is our updated article about: Schmack Carbotech – “Sweden’s leading role in bioenergy through biomethane production, with the world’s largest installed biogas upgrading capacity, is set to further pull-ahead”.  The first article, which is still reproduced below, was published in August 2014. A lot has changed since then, and biomethane production has risen greatly. Schmack has […]

Iamge promoting the NNFCC information portal update

Biogas Information – (Biogas-Info) – The “Official” UK Anaerobic Digestion Information Portal

If you search for “Biogas Information” the chances are that you will end-up at a Leading UK Anaerobic Digestion Information Portal, which is run by consultant NNFCC. In early July 2015 I visited the NNFCC stand while at the UK AD & Biogas show at the NEC, Birmingham , United Kingdom, and I found out […]

Biogas Compressor – Purposes, Design and Suppliers

We thought that we would write about biogas compressors, their purposes, design requirements and suppliers. It is a product which is quite new and there is a growing market for these specialized compressors. There is an increasing demand for greater sophistication in the design of biogas plants, now that the many benefits from anaerobic digestion are […]

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 […]

How to Solve Food Waste AD Pipe Blockage Problems

At the RWM Exhibition at the NEC Birmingham, UK, last week, while I was talking to Anaerobic Digestion service providers, a recurring topic which came up was the significant number of UK biogas plants which have recently been afflicted by pipe blockages. These were in many cases proving to result in long plant outages, and […]

What is thermal Hydrolysis? as used in AD Plants

What is Thermal Hydrolysis? Thermal Hydrolysis Technology Explained

So you want to know; “What is the thermal hydrolysis process?” – and to understand basic thermal hydrolysis technology. Thermal Hydrolysis is a chemical process in which the organic molecules (in the substrate/ feed material) are split into two parts by the addition of a molecule of water. The process forces the water molecules between the […]

EPA and USDA Boost For Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas As Major Renewable Energy Source

Support for the implementation of anaerobic digestion from governments is the most important driver for uptake for AD and biogas technology worldwide. Time and again around the world it can be seen that technical experts can win the case for the viability of innovative technologies in utility service provision, and businesses may offer great new technologies which clearly […]

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, […]
