WHAT IS IT FOR?

  • Heat / power on site
  • Electricity generation
  • Waste disposal

 

DID YOU KNOW?

If CH4 levels fall below 50% (typically) it can cause your CHP engine to strain and therefore become damaged over time.

We have a fantastic diagram which visually takes you through the biogas monitoring process. Take a look!

Future Biogas choose the BIOGAS 5000 and GA3000

Equipment BIOGAS 5000 portable biogas analyser and GA3000 fixed biogas analyser for Anaerobic digestion (crop digestion).

Other applications

Agricultural waste AD (large scale)

Large agricultural processors install AD plant to generate revenue and dispose of biodegradable waste, which is usually a single type.

Mixed food waste AD

Local authorities and waste contractors install AD plants to dispose of mixed organic waste and generate revenue.

Sewage / waste water treatment AD

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.

AD Research

Many universities, government departments and specialist operators carry out research. This can be using full-scale pilot AD plants or small-scale laboratory experiments.
