WHAT IS IT FOR?
DID YOU KNOW?
Siloxanes are used frequently in industrial processes and many consumer products, therefore sometimes they can be introduced into feedstocks and then volatilise into the biogas being produced. These silicon-containing gases can cause damage to gas engines and other AD plant equipment because when they are heated they form hard, glass like shards which damage surfaces and other engine parts. There are various methods for removing siloxanes including activated carbon beds and siloxane removal systems.
We also have a fantastic diagram which visually takes you through the biogas monitoring process. Take a look!
Individual farms install AD (anaerobic digestion) plant and use for on-site heating to generate revenue and dispose of farm waste, which may be a mixture of animal and plant waste.
Local authorities and waste contractors install AD plants to dispose of mixed organic waste and generate revenue.
AD of human waste has been common in many countries for years but increasing energy costs now drive efficiency. Sewage processors are large energy users and AD can offset and help manage this.
Many universities, government departments and specialist operators carry out research. This can be using full-scale pilot AD plants or small-scale laboratory experiments.
