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 electricity and heat are generated and revenue is therefore lost. All plant operators therefore have a crucial interest in running their biogas plant as efficiently as possible. To be able to do this, reliable onsite analysis is needed in combination with continuously operating process instruments.
