  • Co-digestion - is it worth the biogas?

    A seminar on co-digestion is to be held on 20th May in Glasgow, UK. In the UK, co-digestion is almost always considered to involve a mixture of sewage with another waste type such as food waste or source-separated household waste. However a vast range of organic materials can be co-digested including animal manures, silage, paper wastes and other industrial organic wastes. Studies undertaken both ...

  • Go-live for 45th biogas plant from EnviTec Biogas in Italy

  • Germany lowers biogas formaldehyde emissions

    The renewable energy sector has grown enormously in Germany in recent years and there are now large numbers of plants producing energy from biogas/anaerobic digestion. The emissions from these plants are regulated, but the measurement of formaldehyde (a carcinogen) is being reduced as a result of a financial incentive system. However, the measurement of formaldehyde is challenging and in order to ...
