  • 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 ...

  • What`s New? Biogas Power

    Technologies that connect the biogas line to the power line include cooling and clean up components, microturbines and reciprocating gas engines and control systems. TOP BILLING on the biogas to electricity stage typically goes to the microturbines and reciprocating gas engines. But in the theater of renewable energy from organics recycling, the show can’t go on without the supporting cast of gas ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biogas cleaning / conditioning - A requirement for optimal functioning of CHP systems

    Biogas is obtained through the anaerobic decomposition (putrefaction) of organic matter. It contains methane (CH4) in varying proportions, ranging from 35% to 70%, a proportion which largely depends on production methods and the materials involved in the process. This methane concentration is what enables biogas to be used as fuel. The release of methane into the atmosphere contributes to an ...

  • Comparison of Impinger and Canister Methods for the Determination of Siloxanes in Air

    Abstract Tliis paper compares canister and impinger methods for the analysis of siloxanes in air by gas chromatography/inass spectrometry (GC/MS). Siloxanes are frequently found in commercial and consume? products such as detergents and cosmetics. Most low molecular weight siloxane compounds volatize quickly into the atmosphere; however, some end up in wastewater or landfills when consumer ...

  • Siloxanes reactor - Siloxanes removal in municipal WWTP - Case Study

    Siloxanes - What are they? Siloxanes are a subgroup of silica compounds containing Si-O bonds with organic radicals attached to the silica molecule including methyl and ethyl groups, among others. These compounds are widely used in various industrial processes and are frequently added to consumer products (shampoos, toothpastes, lotions, paper products, paints, oils,...). ...

  • Energy efficiency in the European water industry: learning from best practices

    Energy costs and climate change challenges the water industry to improve their energy efficiency. The number of examples of energy measures in water production and treatment is growing rapidly. In this paper, best practices of energy efficiency from the European water industry are presented with the objective of learning from each other. The best practices are collected within the framework of ...

  • The Power of Digester Gas, A Technology Review from Micro to Megawatts

    The County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County (Districts) operate and maintain both a regional wastewater treatment and a solid waste management system that provide services to approximately five million people in Los Angeles County. This involves treating approximately 520 million gallons a day of wastewater and managing the final disposal of half of the 40,000 tons per day of ...

  • An optimal energy allocation model using fuzzy linear programming for energy planning in India for the year 2020

    Development of an energy allocation model will help in the proper allocation of the energy sources in meeting the future energy demand in India. In this paper, an attempt has been made to develop a fuzzy-based linear programming optimal energy model that minimises the cost and determines the optimum allocation of different energy sources for the centralised and decentralised power generation in ...

  • What do a brewery and a wastewater treatment facility have in common? More than you think

    You may think that a brewery and a wastewater treatment facility are about as similar as day and night, hot and cold, old and young. But they have more in common than you think. ABUTEC has worked with both to ensure their waste-to-energy systems function at top capacity. Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan, needed a way to save money, ensure compliance and practice sustainability. ...
