  • 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 ...

  • DECC: Financial support for anaerobic digestion

    The Government has announced ambitious plans to provide financial support for anaerobic digestion technologies through feed-in-tariffs (FITs) and the “world’s first” renewable heat incentive scheme. The schemes are designed to bring about a significant increase in the amount of locally produced green energy and help the UK meet its renewable energy targets. FITs is a financial support system ...

  • Kirk’s Insight into an Anaerobic Digestion Tank

    Anaerobic Digestion Tanks are the most noticeable part of any Anaerobic Digestion plant and in most cases this is where all the action takes place, getting the right base material, coating type, size and design of the tank is a vital part of any AD project. Tanks come in a variety of sizes which will vary depending on the expected throughput of the proposed plant and the material (feedstock) it ...

  • NuReSys-P applied DIRECTLY on Digested Sludge

    While up to now NuReSys-P has been applied on the centrate line, a test-run directly on the digested sludge line, showed an interesting extra ROI. The removal of PO4-P prior to hydro extraction, seems to show an improved dewater ability together with a decreased consumption of poly electrolyte. During the test-run on 5m³/h of digested sludge the original DM of 22% increased to ...
