  • Jubilee bonfire beacon, but no explosion, thanks to methane leak check

    Villagers in Brightwell Baldwin in Oxfordshire celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in style, lighting a hilltop bonfire as one of the nationwide chain of 4000 beacons being lit simultaneously. But the organiser had a background in the gas industry, so he was nervous about lighting a fire above an old landfill site. Leigh Greenham, who has been involved in the gas detection business for many ...

  • NYC closer to turning sewage into energy - by Leon Kaye

    New York City is the only city in the US that never sleeps.  It is also one city that often smells, especially in the summer.  One reason is the city’s aging sewage system, to which the city’s 8 million residents contribute 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater daily. All that wastewater goes through several processes ...

  • At the leading edge of sewage biogas - now and a century ago

    In the city which built the UK's first anaerobic digester in 1895 and had sewage-gas street lighting around the 1900s, today's state-of-the-art sewage biogas analysis equipment is monitoring today's biogas at South West Water's Countess Wear Sewage Treatment Works in Exeter. On watch Countess Wear's sludge reception centre serves more than ...

  • Pre-filtering saves 50% investment in sewage plant

    The Saulekilen Sewage Plant in Arendal, south of Norway, increases its capacity from 45000 p.e. to 80000 p.e. with a new process design. By using a first filter stage combined with compact biofilters, the new plant fits inside the old one. This reduces investments by NOK 25 mill. (USD 4 mill.), which is approximately half the cost of a conventional treatment plant. Filters at entrance ...

  • Green sewage plant could be powered by its own waste gas

    Engineers in the US are using rocket-thruster technology to create a self-powered sewage treatment process that also reduces greenhouse gas emissions.  Using microbes to break down sewage produces nitrous oxide and methane, which contribute to climate change. Now a team at Stanford University in Califronia hopes to increase production of these gases so the methane can be used as fuel and the ...

  • Hey, Doc! Sewage, Beer and Food Scraps Can Power Chevrolet’s Bi-fuel Impala

    Trash to fuel, the stuff of the 1980s sci-fi comedy movie trilogy “Back to the Future,” is now a reality. The 2015 Bi-fuel Chevrolet Impala – not a tricked-out DeLorean – really can run on leftovers, table scraps and, oh, yeah, grains from brewing beer. Cleveland-based quasar energy group uses organic waste to produce a renewable energy source known as biogas, which ...

  • Compost and climate change: a novel mitigation strategy?

    Native soils are thought to take up more of the greenhouse gas methane than land used for farming. This study shows that, while agriculture can exert an adverse impact on soil methane uptake, the application of soil conditioners like compost may compensate for loss of the methane sink function. The researchers propose new land management strategies based on this finding. Agriculture has become ...

  • A garbage /septage cocktail for fuel

    Here’s a frothy brew you wouldn’t want to put a straw into: a not-so-tasty blend of sewage and garbage. As unappealing as it may seem together the two can cut greenhouse gases, help cleanup water supplies and add a new source of green and endlessly renewable fuel, all with the help of a new patented invention by Viridis Waste Control: Septage Bioreactor Landfill (TM) technology.  Left on their ...

  • Biodiesel from microalgae: energy recovery and waste issues

    A recent French study explores ways to maximise the potential of using microalgae to produce biofuels. This includes issues surrounding management of the algal biomass waste, the reuse of the nitrogen and phosphorus inputs as fertilisers in cultivated production and recovery of methane as an additional source of energy from the algal waste. Microalgae contain oils, or 'lipids', that can be ...
