UK Biogas Energy Targets and a New (Vegetable Producer’s) AD Plant Case Study

I was reading the Weltec Biopower Press Release, which follows below, and I also read the background note provided by their publicist. It explains how there are now lots of projects like the Anaerobic Digestion Plant described below, being built by Weltec BioPower and others, that are crucial to the UK’s plans to achieve UK biogas energy targets. To […]

The Hot Bacteria Used in Bio Thermic Digesters

Bio Thermic Digester (BTD) Gains Acceptance And May Become Major Competitor To Anaerobic Digestion

Bio Thermic Digester (BTD) is the term for an innovative type of industrial-scale biological high temperature-digester which uses Aerobic Extremophilic Bacteria to achieve a remarkably high level of mass reduction, and has been launched by waste treatment specialist Advetec. The technology is understood to be capable of rapidly processing significantly high volumes of organic municipal waste, […]

NVP Energy’s Low Temperature Anaerobic Digestion (Lt-AD) Is Set To Reduce TE Charges

Low Temperature Anaerobic Digestion – The Third Type Of AD Process I was intrigued to see a newcomer with a stand at the AD & Biogas Association Exhibition and Conference 2014 last month at the NEC Birmingham.  NVP Energy was there to present their unique and innovative low temperature (< 20°C) Anaerobic Digestion (Lt-AD) wastewater (WW) treatment technology […]

How Anaerobic Digestion Processes Are Applied To Municipal Solid Waste For Biogas And Waste Diversion

Increasingly Anaerobic Digestion Processes are being Applied To Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) for the production of biogas as a renewable energy source, and also for Waste Diversion. Waste Diversion in this context means the diversion of waste (especially organic waste) away from landfill. Anaerobic digestion (AD) of MSW is often part of an MBT Plant […]

What is Biogas and Has It Been Hijacked By Big Business?

So, “What is Biogas”? The term ‘biogas’ is commonly used to refer to a gas which has been produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. The gases methane, hydrogen and carbon monoxide can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen and the resultant energy release allows biogas to be used […]

Anaerobic Digestion of Dairy Manure in the US

In order to pick up the skills needed to take the plunge and invest in anaerobic digestion technology, on any farm to be straight out of college is not essential, but being young and enthusiastic clearly helps, as in our first news item, which follows: Armed with a master’s degree in animal science, Vanderkooi opened […]

Basic Anaerobic Digestion – How Does Anaerobic Digestion Work?

Anaerobic digestion is in-truth an unhelpful name for the basic age-old natural process that produces renewable energy as heat and biogas, plus natural crop fertilizer. Some even think it is a human stomach complaint! Read on and we will dispel any misconceptions you may hold! It works by applying fermentation (very like as used in […]
