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 […]

Electricity Demand Response and the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Industry

Electricity demand response is being adopted in many countries to help electricity companies cope with the fluctuations in supply which are inherent in most renewable energy technologies except for anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion with its high up-time and 24/7 power production capability, is not a part of this problem. In fact, anaerobic digestion, with its […]

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 […]

Biogas Plant Substrate Mixing During Fermentation Creates a Stir with AD Plant Operators

The importance of “creating a stir” in the fermentation tanks of fully mixed bio-reactors for better biogas yields, and improved process stability, is becoming better understood by many AD plant clients around the globe, as more Anaerobic Digestion Plants are being built and the biogas industry matures. A scan of world news on this subject revealed that […]
