  • Case study - Optimising biogas generation in the UK and Germany

    Methane makes money. It generates energy revenues, carbon credits and is part of bio-treatment sludge processing. In most of the world it has only just begun. Measuring what we are doing and being responsible with this potentially damaging greenhouse gas makes good sense. With gas production for revenue, measurement is essential. While landfill gas analysis has been required for compliance with ...
