  • Biofuels and ecoagriculture: can bioenergy production enhance landscape-scale ecosystem conservation and rural livelihoods?

    Global development of the biofuel sector is proceeding rapidly, driven by national policy mandates, government subsidies, and profit opportunities for farmers, agribusiness and energy companies. To date, most investment in - and dialogue on - biofuels has focused on large-scale production of liquid transport fuels. A smaller set of efforts has explored the potential of biofuels to promote rural ...

  • Pumps with extended service life for generating biogas from organic waste

    When regular commercial pumps are used to process organic waste, they typically wear out after only a short period of time. Liquids pumped under these conditions attack pumps from two different angles: first with highly abrasive additives and second with liquids that have highly fluctuating pH values and therefore a high level of chemical aggressiveness. These conditions are very tough on seals ...

  • Turning waste into power

    Economic, social and environmental factors dictate the necessity to manage waste to a new level. Wastewater plants, landfills, farms and food plants are all the owners of biomass that can be digested to produce biogas and turned into power.
