  • Capturing biogas energy to increase your business profits while safeguarding the environment

    Methane is a biogas produced from swine or cow manure, as well as food processing and meat packing waste. Methane is a natural gas, that when left uncollected, contributes to the harmful greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. When biogas is captured under a cover and becomes concentrated, it creates a corrosive and toxic byproduct called hydrogen sulfide. The gas generates a rotten egg ...

  • Case study - Covering lagoon stops odor complaints

    Problem: United Liquid Waste Recycling of Watertown, Wisconsin, recycles food and beverage waste into valuable byproducts such as fertilizer. Odors from the anaerobic treatment process needed to be stopped to enable the company to expand. Two lagoon anaerobic digesters needed an affordable odor control system, which had to function whether the lagoons were full or empty. ...

  • Tax Credit Tips For Biogas Projects

    With the end of 2016 in plain view, anaerobic digestion (AD) projects in the development phase should examine what has to happen by December 31 in order to tap into available federal tax credits. Under current law, Section 45 of the federal tax code makes AD projects eligible for a Production Tax Credit (PTC), which can be converted into an Investment Tax Credit (ITC), if the projects are used to ...

  • Anaerobic digestion of sludge differing in inorganic solids content: performance comparison and the effect of inorganic suspended solids content on degradation

    High inorganic suspended solids (ISS) content of sludge in many areas (especially with combined sewage systems) results in low VS/TS (volatile solids, VS; total solids, TS) levels and raises concerns about its effect on anaerobic digestion. The performances of sludge anaerobic digestion with different feeding VS/TS levels as well as the effect of ISS content on the anaerobic degradation ...
