In the UK, since 2011, there have been two main policies, pushing forward anaerobic digestion UK implementation. Anaerobic Digestion UK policy to collect and digest food waste, and to raise renewable energy production to achieve a target output.
Anaerobic digestion and biogas news and developments, plus general informational articles on the subject.
“Define Anaerobic Digestion”, said a student to me recently. No doubt because I discovered anaerobic digestion back in the 1990s via my background of environmental biochemistry originally, I quoted the original Wikipedia definition. That one is all about breaking down organic material without oxygen present (ref: 1) and is all about the chemistry involved. I thought […]
Anaerobic Digestion Microbial Fuel Cell Systems – Will these become the New “Super-Biogas Process”? Could Anaerobic Digestion Microbial Fuel Cell Systems, become the next “big thing”! With many thousands of large commercial anaerobic digestion plants in use throughout the world, and literally hundreds of thousands of small household and community biogas plants providing energy to their […]
The UK’s On-farm Anaerobic Digestion Community has been working in the last few days to publicize the many benefits of their process which produces biogas. Government seed funding of biogas plant projects can help in a big way, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fuel use, in provides jobs, and reduces waste sent to landfill. All […]
Dry anaerobic digestion can be seen as a well-kept secret. It is seldom mentioned in most AD industry circles. In the rush to develop anaerobic digestion plants so far, most biogas project promoters have stuck to the most familiar methods of wet anaerobic digestion. However, in many countries the profitability of biogas projects will soon […]
Anaerobic digestion is turning not only cow – well you know – dung, into environmentally-friendly energy to heat and power your home, but also tannery (leather making) wastes, and even rejected chocolate.
Scotland’s anaerobic digestion (AD) industry has grown by nearly 70%t in the last year, according to 2015 figures.
The anaerobic digestion story continues to become bigger as new sources of biomass feedstock are identified and the biogas technology used improves
There has been a rapid rise this year in biomethane production. Anyone who takes an interest in the anaerobic digestion industry and the renewable energy scene will have seen a rash of announcements of new AD Plants which will from the outset be equipped with biogas upgrade equipment, and existing AD facilities where upgrading equipment […]
The anaerobic digestion of kitchen waste (also known as food waste anaerobic digestion) makes a lot of sense for urban communities which culturally have always prepared a lot of their food, especially where much of it is from vegetables they prepare themselves at home. In these circumstances there is a lot of organic vegetable kitchen waste […]
