  • CHP efficiency for biogas

    Combined heat and power plant efficiency is a function of the conversion efficiency of the energy in the fuel gas to useful energy in the form of electricity and heat. A combined heat and power (CHP) plant is typically a reciprocating gas engine that uses the energy in the gas to drive a crank shaft. The crank shaft turns an alternator to ...

  • Case study - Purification of biogas in EDAR Mapocho

    BIOCONSERVACION: Integral solution for biogas purification in WWTPs Biogas is mainly composed by methane and carbon dioxide as a result of organic matter fermentation in the absence of air by the action of a microbial consortium (anaerobic digestion). The composition of biogas depends entirely on the nature of the waste processed and the conditions under which takes place the anaerobic digestion. ...

  • High-strength wastes boost biogas production

    Water and wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are significant consumers of energy. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates the industry uses the equivalent of 56 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity, representing three percent of the nation’s energy consumption, and is responsible for creating 45 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year. Energy intensive processes, such ...

  • Economical and Effective biogas process to Purify alternative fuels for Power generation

    Abstract Energy recovery from biogas is becoming more common, but the processes are hampered with the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Biogas is a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) and is often contaminated with toxic quantities of H2S. Sources of biogas are: municipal landfills that produce landfill gas (LFG); wastewater treatment plants; industrial plants; and large scale ...
