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 […]

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 […]

Obama and biogas recycling

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 […]

Costs of Anaerobic Digestion

Costs of Anaerobic Digestion

The Costs of Anaerobic Digestion are of course what everyone thinking of embarking upon a biogas project wants to know, and at the same time very few AD Plant owners and contractors want to give out their costs to a general audience, due to the commercially sensitive nature of such information. That’s why when we found […]

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 […]
