  • Energy from biogas

    From an ecological and economical perspective, biogas is an important source of energy. The fossil resources are limited, and they impose a high burden on the environment. A resourceconserving alternative made from biomass poses a different scenario. The raw material is renewable, and conversion only releases as much CO2 as was previously contained by the source material. With the technological ...

  • National brewery benefits from biogas

    Anheuser-Busch has installed anaerobic digestion systems at 10 of its 12 large breweries in the U.S., with an 11th system in design. Primary drivers are cost-avoidance for wastewater treatment fees and fossil fuel purchases. ANHEUSER-BUSCH, owner of 12 large breweries in the U.S., has committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 5 percent from 2005 levels by 2010. The company is well ...

  • Energy recovery from biogas purification

    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 livestock farms. ...

  • 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 ...
