  • Capturing biogas energy to increase your business profits while safeguarding the environment

    Methane is a biogas produced from swine or cow manure, as well as food processing and meat packing waste. Methane is a natural gas, that when left uncollected, contributes to the harmful greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. When biogas is captured under a cover and becomes concentrated, it creates a corrosive and toxic byproduct called hydrogen sulfide. The gas generates a rotten egg ...

  • Biogas recovery from a temperate climate covered anaerobic pond

    New Zealand has over 1000 anaerobic waste stabilisation ponds treating wastewater from farms and industry. Traditional anaerobic ponds were not designed to optimise anaerobic digestion to produce biogas and are therefore uncovered, releasing biogas to the atmosphere, which can cause odour problems and contributes to GHG emissions. The biogas production and treatment performance of an anaerobic ...

  • Biogas upgrading using the DMT Carborex® PWS Technology.

    Abstract Gas is an excellent fuel for a large number of applications and can also be used as raw material for the pro- duction of chemicals. Biogas can be used in more or less all the applications that are developed for natural gas. For some of the applications biogas may have to be upgraded. Injection of biogas into the natural gas grid will result in an improved security of supply. This ...

  • Aerobic thermophilic bacteria enhance biogas production

    The enhancing effect of aerobic thermophilic (AT) bacteria on the production of biogas from anaerobically digested sewage sludge (methanogenic sludge) was investigated. Sewage sludge (5%, w/w) was incubated at 65°C with shaking for a few months to prepare the AT seed sludge. AT sludge was prepared by incubation of the AT seed sludge (5%, v/v) and sewage sludge (5%, w/w) at 65°C with shaking. The ...
