Burn it no more!
The other day I came across an old news article from 2008 about a Dutch energy plant that burns 485,000 tons of poultry litter each year, converting it into renewable electricity. Wow, I thought. That is an old-fashioned way of getting rid of poultry litter – they must be releasing some 14,550 tons nitrogen gas into the atmosphere. All this to produce 270,000 MWh of electricity, 890,000 MWh of steam plus an ash-based phosphor- and potassium-rich fertilizer product. Why waste good nitrogen and release it...
Biogas desulfurization and siloxanes abatement - Case Study
MCFC project by CETAGUA (Mataró – Spain) Reducing the carbon footprint of our society is imperative. This can be achieved by capturing and confining anthropogenic CO2 emissions as well as by replacing fossil-based fuels with renewable or waste-derived fuels. MCFCs (Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells) are unique in being able to do both these things. Thanks to their operating principle, CO2 can be extracted from a gas stream on the cathode side and hydrocarbon fuels like biogas can be converted to electricity...
Going Further with Food: The Rise of Channelling Food Waste for Biogas Production
Almost 50% of the total amount of food thrown away in the UK comes from our homes, representing over seven million tonnes of food and drink wasted from British households annually. Wasting this food costs the average household £470 a year. In fact, if we all stop wasting food that could have been eaten, the benefit to the planet would be the equivalent of taking 1 in 4 cars off the road (1). Food waste is indeed an untapped resource with great potential for generating energy. Diverting even just a portion...
