UK Brexit to Hit UK On-Farm Anaerobic Digestion While US AD Grows

The UK Brexit from the EU is about to hit UK on-farm anaerobic digestion. What has been a growing success story for the UK is being predicted to quickly become a victim of the UK government’s plans for the exit of the nation from the European Union. Other sectors, such as the anaerobic digestion of […]

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 […]

Biowaste Feedstock Availability Set to Rise – EU Parliament Report

There is nothing like an EU target imposed in all member states to produce additional biowaste feedstock supplies, which are the life-blood for anaerobic digestion plant operations. Like it or lump it, and as we know, the UK doesn’t like it and will presumably be out before this comes into force. However, there are new, higher, […]

Award-nominated Landia GasMix Gets a “High Five”!

Pump and mixer manufacturer Landia has been shortlisted for no fewer than five top industry awards by ADBA, the Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association. Landia’s GasMix digester mixing system has been nominated for the ‘Innovation in Sewage Treatment through AD’ award for its performance at the Irish Water site run by EPS Water in Tullamore Ireland. For a major new […]

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 […]

Anaerobic Digestion to be Detroit Zoo’s Newest Attraction and to Use Crowdsourcing

Animal waste is commonly used as fertilizer but it can now be utilized as an endless supply of energy thanks to Anaerobic Digestion. Zoos in the U.S. clean around 400 tons of animal waste a year and that amount of waste can be processed and used to provide about 10% of their energy needs. The […]

EPA and USDA Boost For Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas As Major Renewable Energy Source

Support for the implementation of anaerobic digestion from governments is the most important driver for uptake for AD and biogas technology worldwide. Time and again around the world it can be seen that technical experts can win the case for the viability of innovative technologies in utility service provision, and businesses may offer great new technologies which clearly […]

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 […]

Energy from Waste- Watch out for the waste

Energy from Waste Using Advanced Conversion Technologies Including Anaerobic Digestion

 The topic today is the UK Waste Regs. and how important it is when planning a UK energy from waste project, not to “fall and get hurt by” the Waste Hierarchy! Generating energy from waste, including anaerobic digestion – Gov.uk (author unknown) “Overview; Conventional technologies; Advanced conversion technologies; Environmental controls; Obstacles to energy from waste; […]
