Dairy-Farmers-Consider-Selling-Herds-and-Going-for-Biogas

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 […]

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 […]

3 Reasons Why UK Biomethane Producers Should Watch Bio-fuel Market Prices Closely

Like it or not, biogas and especially biomethane producers should start to take a keen interest in Bio-fuel Market Prices, and here is our list of 3 reasons why. “UK Biomethane producers and potential “biogas-plant to biomethane upgraders”, should be watching bio-fuel market prices closely.” That’s because many foresee big gains in the prices they […]

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 […]

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 […]

Schmack Biogas Plant Isle of Wight

Wight Farm Energy and Schmack Combine International Expertise With Local Knowledge for First IoW Biogas Plant

We found the following points made in the Wight Farm Energy Press Release reproduced here, to be of particular interest: The most formidable challenge that had to be overcome during the construction period was the long-delayed decision of the DECC (Department Of Energy and Climate Change) over the RHI (Renewable Heat Initiative) for AD and Gas to […]
