News

This category is the place for anaerobic digestion and biogas news and developments.

Today anaerobic digestion (AD) news is all about is the environmentally-sustainable way of generating biogas from plants and wastes.

Many news items stem from the fact that anaerobic digestion systems can be very different for example material may be fed into a reactor in distinct batches, or in a continuous flow.

Anaerobic Digestion News

News and analysis of anaerobic digestion markets, facilities, projects, technologies, companies and government policies.

There are a number of news items that have been posted for a variety of UK food waste anaerobic digestion projects which show that Anaerobic Digestion UK is growing. This news seems to confirm the gradual growth of business in the AD sector.

There will be more news of the UK ETS Scheme as final deals are made. Bioenergy and EfW investors say the move is the next “logical next step”.

Many people love cooking with gas, but what if you could make your own supply, using leftover food waste? Look out for more news of developments in this area as well.

In principle it is simple; you put organic matter into a reception vessel with bacteria and it will produce gas. That is why it is often, not always correctly, likened to a concrete cow. The more you seek to optimise this living structure and its gas production, however, the more complex and sophisticated the system becomes. While the feedstock delivers the gas, it needs the right environment to maximise results and that means paying attention to tank design. As with all things practical, form reflects function.

There are a number of news items that have been posted for a variety of UK food waste anaerobic digestion projects which show that Anaerobic Digestion UK is growing. This news seems to confirm the gradual growth of business in the AD sector.

A few years ago there were UK biogas plants starting construction at the rate of at least two a month, and the industry was even then disappointed and thought the rate should be higher. The news must get better on that over the next few years.

The news is that AD benefits many different groups; including the local community, industry, farmers and energy entrepreneurs, government and the environment.

There is also a demand that in future there will be better AD of solid waste, and by that, we mean smaller, more compact digesters which create much higher gas yields. There is progress being made with a number of promising technologies being used and we will be expecting news on this subject.

We will no doubt also be reporting on how sustainable is an anaerobic digestion biogas plant? The increasing substitution of fossil fuels, such as natural gas, by biogas, would dramatically improve the climate balance.

A THRIVING anaerobic digestion industry is vital for the development of a truly circular economy in Scotland, according to the chief executive of the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association.

“Returning nutrients from food and other organic materials to the soil, so they can improve soil quality and support food production, is the kind of closed-loop approach we need.

About to come is news of a big increase in recycling and reuse, more food waste being recycled, less waste going to landfill, and especially less climate-harming biodegradable waste,” said Iain Gulland, chief executive of Zero Waste Scotland.

“This has been achieved with hard work from local authorities and others, as well as the growing understanding of the importance of recycling and waste reduction in homes and businesses.”

Increasingly, waste has value. The AD process recognises that and turns things we don’t want, like food waste and farmyard slurry, into something we desperately need – clean, affordable electricity what could be more newsworthy than that!

Waste Food: Recycling Food Waste from Fish Morts Using Anaerobic Digestion

There are many sources of waste food, and ways to recycle food waste, but one of the most unusual must be to recycle fish morts by anaerobic digestion. As the world’s population continues to grow so will the amount of this type of waste grow, the main source of fish morts is from the aquaculture […]

Anaerobic Digestion UK: Reducing Biogas Cost & Raising AD Yields 20 Fold – A Revolutionary Vision

The Anaerobic Digestion UK industry needs to drastically reduce biogas production cost, and bring about a revolution in digester yields raising them by an astonishing 20 fold. That’s the vision of many in the UK industry, who also point out that without a revolution in AD technology productivity there is little chance of the process […]

More Ways to Make Money from Farm Biogas Plants

In this article we list and describe the many: “Ways to Make Money from Farm Biogas Plants“. The remarkable thing about anaerobic digestion (AD) plants, also known as biogas plants, and as “digesters” is the number of ways they can create an income, and save money, for their owners. We think that many people fail to appreciate […]

Breaking News! 2nd Crowdfunded HomeBiogas Plant Will Be Portable

A second innovative portable HomeBiogas Plant appears to be achieving the funding needed, and this time it will be a portable anaerobic digestion plant. It is astonishing the extent to which that the public will spend money on crowdfunding websites like IndieGigo, which claim 15 million visits monthly. It was at first understandable that web visitors might buy […]
