  • Monitoring of digesters in biogas plants

    Renewable sources of energy are gaining steadily in importance. Leading the way is the use of methane gas obtained from fermentation processes in biogas plants. Overloading such plants with excessive biomass may have drastic economic consequences and may even inactivate the biomass, necessitating a cost-intensive restart. Adding too little biomass also has financial consequences, as less ...

  • Biogas-to-biomethane upgrading plant

    Chesterfield BioGas (CBG) supplied the UK’s first biogas upgrading plant to produce clean biomethane for direct injection into the national gas grid for use by all consumers. The project was successfully completed and gas injected into the national grid at the wastewater treatment site of Thames Water site at Didcot, Oxfordshire in October 2010. This achievement was a benchmark moment for ...

  • Easy payback from biogas monitoring

    There is a strong business case for biogas monitoring and CHP protection. A fixed biogas analyser may cost some £6-10,000 and monitor gas every few minutes day and night. By comparison it can save its own cost many times over by protecting CHP engines from expensive unplanned downtime, biogas engine ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ethanol by-product raises biogas output

    In 2007, the City of Fergus Falls, Minnesota undertook a study to evaluate adding thick corn stillage to the anaerobic digesters at its wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). The goal was to determine the potential for codigesting syrup with biosolids to increase biogas production, while avoiding operational and regulatory problems. The Fergus Falls WWTP operates three digesters in series, two ...

  • 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 ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • Latest analytical technology ensures biogas efficiency

    Anaerobic Digestion (AD) relies on the ability of specific micro-organisms to convert organic material into a gas that can be used to generate electricity. However, these bacteria require specific conditions if they are to function effectively and instrumentation specialist company HACH LANGE has developed a range of online, portable and laboratory instruments that have enabled a large number of ...

  • CH4E 25m3 DIY Biogas Holder - Case Study

    CH4e have a simple mantra; they are “singularly devoted to creating energy independence and increased wealth for farmers”. Being one of a very few UK companies offering an entirely British designed and built AD system to the UK farmer, the Ch4e solution is proving to be far more relevant than the imported European equivalent. On a typical UK farm with more than 300 cows, the CH4e ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
