Food Waste AD – The Anaerobic Digestion of Inedible Food for Energy and Natural Fertiliser

Food Waste AD is the short way to refer to the anaerobic digestion of inedible food for renewable energy and natural fertiliser. That sentence encapsulates the core philosophy of the movement towards food waste AD. “It’s a crying same that any food is wasted while so many people struggle to feed themselves. Mechanically digesting this […]

Food Waste Recycling Machine Raises Purity of Pretreated Biogas Substrate to New Level

Gemidan Ecogi’s anaerobic digestion substrate pre-treatment system is effectively a food waste recycling machine for large commercial biogas plants which produces a high-quality pulp-based substrate for digestion/ energy production in AD/ biogas plants. The Gemidan ECOGI system (food waste recycling machine) has a reputation for enhancing the recovery of renewable energy during the anaerobic digestion […]

What is Renewable Energy and How Does It Work

There is a simple answer to; “What is renewable energy?” It is energy which is self replenishing. Many people would say that it is also sustainable energy, which implies that in accordance with many definitions of sustainability it should be self replenishing within a generation, so that the present generation does not rob energy resources […]

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 […]

How to Solve Food Waste AD Pipe Blockage Problems

At the RWM Exhibition at the NEC Birmingham, UK, last week, while I was talking to Anaerobic Digestion service providers, a recurring topic which came up was the significant number of UK biogas plants which have recently been afflicted by pipe blockages. These were in many cases proving to result in long plant outages, and […]

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, […]

How to Reduce Methane Emissions? – By Our Support of Agricultural Biogas Says Obama

In a very welcome move, the White House is backing farm biogas production from manure and other feedstocks, as a way to reduce national methane emissions which are implicated as a significant source of climate change. The US dairy industry not only came to the same conclusion in 2009, but has been working toward its […]
