What is Biogas? A Beginners Guide – Home to Commercial Digester Systems

We answer the question: “What is Biogas?” Biogas is generated during anaerobic digestion (AD) when microorganisms break down (by eating it) organic materials in the absence of air (or oxygen). Biogas is mostly methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), with very small amounts of water vapor and other gases. The carbon dioxide and other gases […]

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 […]

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 […]

High Rate Anaerobic Digestion Plant Treats Wastewater Effluent Streams

A High Rate Anaerobic Digestion Plant can treat high strength Wastewater Effluent Streams including sewage sludge, very efficiently. This is an important finding due to the fact that biodegradable wastewaters contribute about 6% of all anthropogenic methane emissions. High-rate anaerobic digesters have the potential to treat such wastewaters while also creating renewable energy. This energy […]
