Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion of Food Waste

Food Waste Anaerobic Digestion – The Main Benefits

Food waste anaerobic digestion is often said to be an established “good thing”. This is supported by government policy, but almost no-one seemed to be explaining why! That’s why we made our short video titled: “5 Top Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion of Food Waste”, and we have gone further into more detail in this article. […]

Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion

The Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion are wide and the creation of renewable energy as biogas (largely methane), is just one of them. We provide a detailed lists, of the benefits of anaerobic digestion, below. We think that this is the most comprehensive document available on this subject. Before focusing on the detail, we begin by […]

What is a Biogas Power Plant?

A Biogas Power Plant is essentially another name which has been coined recently for an anaerobic digestion plant, also known as a biogas digester. As any technology becomes more successful and reaches a wider audience, so does it generate new names and the anaerobic digestion technology sector is no exception. To cover the entire topic […]

Disadvantages of Incineration vs Anaerobic Digestion

Hmmm! “Disadvantages of Incineration vs Anaerobic Digestion”; We guess that a lot of visitors will be thinking “Why compare these two processes? Why talk about the disadvantages of incineration versus anaerobic digestion?” That is a good question, and it isn’t something we would have thought of, had not the comparison been made in a report published […]

Biogas Holder Design for Commercial AD Plants

Biogas Holder Design is remarkably similar for most of the common type of commercial AD plants, so here we devote our discussion of anaerobic digestion plant gas storage to gas holders for circular digester tanks and circular gas holders. Most of those are mesophilic type single stage continuously stirred biogas reactors (CSRs). Biogas holders designed […]

Biogas Additives Improving Digester Biology in Anaerobic Digestion Plants

In this article we provide a summary of Biogas Additives which are offered to AD Plant operators. This is all about improving Digester Biology in Anaerobic Digestion Plants for higher biogas yield and greater digester resilience against loss of biogas production when the anaerobic digestion process becomes stressed. There are a large number of products which are […]

Biomethane from Sewage Sludge at Minworth STW Heats 3,000 UK Homes

This is the story of how one UK water utility company is making biomethane from sewage sludge and helping the UK meet emissions reduction targets. They are purifying biogas into pure methane (biomethane) renewable energy, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions substantially. They are doing this by using their own sewage sludge waste product at Minworth Sewage […]

5 Anaerobic Digestion Problems to Avoid When Running Commercial Biogas Facilities

We list 5 anaerobic digestion problems which are common to the biogas process, and are easily and rapidly corrected for and avoided, at AD facilities run by expert biogas plant operators. BUT, the same problems can be disastrous/ cause long digester-downtime in the hands of novice Anaerobic Digestion Plant operators. The 5 Anaerobic Digestion Problems, are: […]
