Biofuel Analyzing for the Bioenergy Industry

by AppliTek NV - Environmental Analysis Division     based in Nazareth, BELGIUM

AppliTek has already developed the necessary tools to measure and control on-line the production, in case the futur is in favour of biofuels. For biodiesel, the following quality indices should be monitored, on order to comply with international legislation on biofuel QC:

Free fatty acids - Calcium & Magnesium - Total Phosphorus - Potassium - Moisture (water content)

Wastewater Treatment for the Bioenergy Industry

by HydroThane STP BV     based in KC `s Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS

The waste (water) streams from the production of (bio) ethanol or ethanol spirits are generally very suitable for anaerobic treatment, due to their organic compounds. 

The effluent streams produced by the different production processes are influences by a great number of parameters such as, process design, milling process, type of raw material, etc. This requires special attention in the design of the treatment plant for this type of industry. 

Typical streams from these industries that can be treated are, whole stillage, thin stillage, spent wash, vinasse and condensate from evaporator. The Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) process and the External Circulation Sludge Bed (ECSB) process from HydroThane are worldwide proven processes for the treatment of this type of waste water.

by Superior Tank Co., Inc.     based in Rancho Cucamonga, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Superior Tank Co., Inc.  has a proven track record of designing and manufacturing factory-powdered coated bolted and welded steel storage tanks for the most challenging projects. Superior Tank’s staff of engineers can design and manufacture a tank that will fit your unique needs.

Storage and cover solution for bioenergy industry

by CST Industries Inc     based in Gardena, CALIFORNIA (USA)

CST Industries is the world`s leading complete storage and cover solution provider for BioEnergy applications.

Sensor for Biogas

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Anaerobic Digestion plants produce various gas components from a source material (or feedstock) that can be composed either solely or as a mixture of slurries, purpose-grown crops, food and organic waste material. The composition of the gas produced varies depending upon the feedstock and the Anaerobic digestion process itself. As a consequence, it is normal to measure various components of the resultant gas produced to evaluate the efficiency of the Anaerobic Digestion process. Furthermore, due to the flammable nature of Methane (CH4), and the risk of asphyxiation, most plants feature ambient air monitoring to protect personnel from any unplanned accumulation of leaked gas. CH4 is the gas component fuel, which is the intended end product of the anaerobic digestion process. In biogas plants, the concentration of CH4 in a working plant varies between 50%-75%, which is well above the Upper Explosive Limit (UEL).

Biogas monitoring

by Banner Engineering Corp.     based in Diegem, BELGIUM

meet governmental regulations, it is important to accurately monitor methane gas production, removal, venting, and burning. Knowledge of both methane flow and temperature at the flare stack can define when CH4 is being emitted to the atmosphere. The DX99 FlexPower™ Nodes can be installed in EX area with a Zone 0 ATEX certification. Use the analogue input to determine methane production levels and flow and use the thermocouple model to measure the temperature of a vent to verify the continuous combustion of methane.

Biogas recovery

by Geomembrane Technologies Inc. (GTI)     based in Fredericton, NEW BRUNSWICK (CANADA)

Collect valuable biogas from anaerobic digestion systems with a GTI gas collection cover. In waste-to-energy projects, the collected biogas can be used as a renewable fuel to generate process heat or electricity, helping to offset energy costs.

Digestate drying

by STELA Laxhuber GmbH     based in Massing, GERMANY

The Stela Laxhuber drying system is a highly efficient method to dry digestates with low-caloric heat. Low emissions as well as a high-quality final product with low consumption values are the striking advantages of the STELA belt dryer technology.

Gas Sensing for Gasification

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen (H), which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification. Gasification starts with a base material which can originate from a wide variety of materials for example wood chips and pellets, plastics, municipal solid waste, sewage, waste crops, and fossil fuels such as coal. During Gasification the base material is reacted at high temperature without combustion with controlled amounts of oxygen (O) or steam. The composition of the base material combined with the amount of oxygen and heat used in the process affects the composition of the resultant SynGas, in which the CO can vary between around 20 and 60%. In addition, large amounts of H and CO are also formed. The measurement of CO is therefore an important feature in the production of SynGas.

Wastewater treatment for the biofuels

by Aguambiente     based in La Cistérniga, SPAIN

In these companies, the water to be treated can vary depending on the technology used and on the raw materials. These effluents usually contain high concentrations of contaminants, especially those coming from esterification processes.

Alternative Fuel Production

by Superior Boiler Works, Inc.     based in Hutchinson, KANSAS (USA)

Superior Boiler Works, Inc. led the way in Ethanol production in the USA with more installed firetube boilers in Ethanol plants than any other manufacturer. Ethanol requires the distillation of sugars into an alcohol fuel. Superior’s products are used to generate heat needed for the ethanol distillation processes, heating storage tanks as well as batch reactors. Additionally, Superior Boilers can be fitted with packaged burners which fire a variety of fuels from tallow to syngas to Hydrogen and most anything in between.

International testing for biofuels

by Metrohm AG     based in Herisau, SWITZERLAND

Sustainable use of biofuels requires reliable and precise analytical methods throughout – from the choice of raw materials through to process optimization and on to the compliant final product. As a leading manufacturer of instruments for chemical analysis, we are quite aware of these challenges.

Agitators for Biogas Blants

by SUMA Rührtechnik GmbH     based in Sulzberg, GERMANY

Use the SUMA agitators to prevent the formation of floating and sinking substrate layers. Furthermore they ensure that the substrate maintains an equal temperature throughout. The homogeneously distribution of nutrients for the biological process enables more efficient gas flow out of the substrate.

Research and commercial applications for the biogas industry

by Bioprocess Control AB     based in Lund, SWEDEN

Covering areas of substrate analysis, process simulation, gas flow measurement, as well as a series of bioreactors.
