  • Where To Find Money In Biogas

    On the surface, wastewater treatment operations don’t appear to be handling precious material. But these facilities are actually processing a great deal of value every day. Sludge, a byproduct of wastewater treatment, turns out to be an entity worth cherishing. “Depending on treated sludge quality, the final product can be land applied, landfilled, incinerated, or composed,” ...

  • From the biogas to vehicle fuel

    The biogas consists mainly of methane and carbon dioxide. Other components can be water and sulphur, mainlyhydrogen sulphide. To be able to use the biogas as vehicle fuel or to distribute it in natural gas grids the gas has to becleaned and upgraded. The biogas is upgraded by removing carbon dioxide to raise the calorific value and create a gaswith constant quality. One of the techniques to ...

  • How big is the distributed energy opportunity for water and wastewater utilities?

    Energy costs for water utilities are large, and growing Energy is a significant cost for many water utilities, and costs are growing as more energy-intensive forms of water supply, including desalination, are being used. Energy is typically the second-largest utility budget item in developed countries, after labour. In many developing countries, energy can account for 70% or even more, of ...

  • Sewage biogas fuels public transport buses in Oslo

    Bimethane produced by the Bekkelaget sewage treatment plant in Oslo, Norway, will begin fueling B0 public sector buses in 2009, marking a major step towards meeting its goal to reduce climate gas emissions 50% by the year 2030. Another 250 buses will be fueled by biomethane produced from two wet-organic waste separation plants scheduled to start up in 2011. Norway signed the Kyoto Protocol, an ...

  • Biogas upgrading to green gas and vehicle fuel

    Abstract More and more effort is being put in the utilization of bio-solids. Bio-solids can be an important source for useful products like fertilizers and biogas. DMT has been developing biogas treatment plants for over 20 years following the market developments ...

  • Biogas in Asia

    The development of biogas production and monitoring has had many twists and turns, from its early days in Germany to the heady days of support through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).   The fall in the price of carbon credits, which rewarded reduction in emissions of methane (CH4) - a potent greenhouse gas - and use of methane from waste as renewable energy, has hit Asia ...

  • From biogas to natural gas - A new renewable fuel supply line

    Continents and countries that depend on fossil fuels, such as Europe, and within Europe, northern Europe, are increasingly looking with interest at renewable energies and are committed to developing such energies as a source for future development. Biogas from different sources is a valuable material for the production of energy, chemical products and bio-fuels. Because it is a renewable energy, ...

  • Portable biogas bottling plant: a practical approach for using biogas as transportation fuel in rural areas

    Biogas contains about 65% methane, 30-35% carbon dioxide, traces of hydrogen sulphide and moisture. It has been observed that diesel engines get severely damaged when operated on biogas for long duration. Presence of these corrosive gases make biogas unsuitable for transportation application. By removing CO2 and trace acidic gases like H2S and moisture, biogas can be converted into natural gas ...

  • Diagnosing the effects of pilot fuel quality on exergy terms in a biogas run dual fuel diesel engine

    This work presents the exergy balances of biogas dual fuel combustion modes using two different pilot fuels in a single–cylinder diesel engine. The main focus is on the use of biodiesel (BD) as a pilot in place of fossil diesel fuel. The results reveal that the important exergy loss recovery sources are the exhaust gas and cooling water exergy. By accessing these losses, there is an increase of ...

  • Focus on Biogas Plants

    To meet the domestic fuel and bio-fertilizer needs, 3,680 biogas plants are planned to be set up in rural areas by June 2012, according to Pakistan Centre for Renewable Technologies. The Centre says that over 2,100 family-size biogas plants — against the target of 2,500 — have already been set up throughout the country. The programme, supported by NGOs, farmers’ bodies and the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biogas as an option for industrial applications

    Biogas is typically burned to produce electricity or used as vehicle fuel. This case study analyses possibilities to utilise biogas directly in industrial applications to replace current fossil raw materials. True industrial cases are analysed by considering economic impacts of using either landfill gas or gas produced from biomass. Utilisation of biogas is economically viable and technically ...
