Gobar Gas the Benefits of Gas from Dung

Gobar gas is also known as “Bio gas” or simply “biogas”. Its main component is animal dung (gobar – India) along with some other organic matter like dead remains of plants and animals. It can be used to cooking, electricity generating and heating purposes. It is proving to be a very cost-effective and environment-friendly alternative fuel […]

RHI UK – Anaerobic Digestion Renewable Heat Incentive Details 2018

UK RHI documentation below, does not currently refer to biogas plants as being eligible, while the AD industry awaits the reintroduction of RHI applications for biogas plants, which is expected to come soon. The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) was introduced to help kick-start the transition to low- carbon heating in the UK, giving help to all […]

Weltec Biopower Extends Existing AD Plant in France After 2016 French Feed-in Tariff Extension

Weltec Biopower has once again announced that it is extending one of their previously constructed biogas plants, at an Anaerobic Digestion Plant in France (Iffendic). This follows our previous article when, in September 2014, we wrote here in this blog, that biogas plant designer and construction contractor Weltec Biopower, had been awarded the 1.1 MW Piddlehinton […]

Renewable Natural Gas Transport – Use of Biogas for Vehicle Fuel

There are many benefits in the use of natural gas transport, even if the natural gas source is fossil fuel based. That’s because of the low-carbon emissions of this fuel and the clean burning characteristics of methane (natural gas). Currently, taxation on this form of fuel is very low, which for the moment is another […]

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 […]
