Biogas Equipment

The equipment used in anaerobic digestion and biogas plants, including its design, installation, maintenance and operation. This includes innovative new developments in biogas equipment, pumps and gas engines. Dosing equipment and biomethane upgrading technologies are also included in this category.

Pig Farm Biogas Plant Output Increased 10% While Reducing Impact

We welcome this news that an innovative US Pig Farm Biogas Plant operator has raised its biogas output while all else remains constant by more than 10% simply by installing more efficient pumps. We have written previously on a number of occasions about these pumps. These days hardly a week goes by without another technology […]

Biogas from crop residues, not the grain/ food crop.

Use a Biogas Extruder to Make Biogas from Straw Not Food – Biomass Bioextruder™

The Biogas Extruder: Until now making biogas from straw and other similar grain crop residues has been considered uneconomic by the AD industry. But, that was before the advent of bio extrusion technology, and specifically the biomass Bioextruder™. The use of any food crops for energy production often attracts public criticism. This is despite the […]

Combined Heat and Power Systems (CHP) – 3 Important Considerations for Design

Combined heat and power systems (CHP), are also known as co-generation systems, and they greatly improve the usable energy output from electricity generation systems. When a gas engine or turbine is used to generate electricity without CHP, after the electricity leaving the site, there is also hot “cooling water” that is used to keep the […]

The Biogas Engine Defined and How it Generates Electricity

We have defined what we mean by a biogas engine and how such engines are used as a biogas generator, including discussing what cogeneration means in terms of secondary heat ultilisation and CHP

Biogas Analysis and Gas Quality Monitoring of Anaerobic Digestion Processes

Biogas analysis and maximizing the efficiency of anaerobic digestion plants is gaining more attention as the anaerobic digestion industry matures. If you are seeking to find out more about this topic, read-on, because this article is for you! With the rapidly increasing global awareness that the world must decarbonize or suffer huge problems and costs […]

Future Biogas Borger pumps separators

Future Biogas Orders More Borger Pumps and Separators

Even if Borger (Börger) the specialist pump manufacturer wasn’t one of our sponsors we still would publish this as we think it is of interest to our readers to know when a company like Future Biogas (one of the largest biogas companies in the UK, which every year produces over 400GWh of biogas, and enough […]

Landia and Plant Operator rest after Biogas digester crust removal by the Landia GasMix mixer.

Biogas Digester Crust Re-dissolved by Landia GasMix Mixer After Propeller Mixing Failure

Biogas digester crust formations floating on the surface of reactor tanks may sound to be of little consequence, but that’s not so according to anaerobic digestion tank operators. furthermore, breaking up and re-dissolving a biogas digester tank surface crust was defeating the best efforts of one AD plant operator recently after a propeller mixer suffered […]

Vertical Long-Shaft Pump Will Blend Cow Slurry At AD Plant

Vertical long-shaft pumps have been around since the earliest days of sewer installation, however, never before did they run this long and deep for biogas plant pump company Landia. Read on to find out more about this case study and how this pump will blend cow manure slurry at an AD Plant in Northern Ireland. […]

Landia Chopper Pump Chops Knives – Robust Pump Survives Knife Attack!

A Landia Chopper Pump when serviced recently was found to have been chopping on knives apparently left in waste-food. Chopper pumps are so named because a rotating “blade” and 3 fixed “knives” (scroll down to see illustration) at the pump casing entry point. These are positioned to chop through fibrous material (even cutting through rope […]
