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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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; […]

UKs Food Waste Anaerobic Digestion Plant Demonstrator to be Shut

So, sadly, Shropshire Council and Biogen have announced the closure of the Biocycle food waste anaerobic food digestion (biogas) plant in Ludlow. Back in 2010 the council were looking at stopping household food waste collections in the area as a reaction to the need to cut finances although this isn’t sated to be a reason […]

Work to Start on Commercial Food Waste AD Plant in North East of UK

There is good news today about the development of UK commercial food waste anaerobic digestion with the announcement of a substantial UK government subsidy for a new food waste AD plant for the North East of England. Previously, little was happening in this region on food waste digestion, so this additional funding assistance should help […]
