What is Biomethane and Anaerobic Digestion Gas to Grid Definition

It is a good question to ask; “What is biomethane and anaerobic digestion gas to grid”, but for the first part (biomethane) don’t expect always to get the same answer! Many people use the term biomethane interchangeably as if it means the same as biogas. In fact, when the term “biomethane” is used correctly the […]

Septic Tanks: Are they Anaerobic Digesters?

We have been asked the question of whether Septic Tanks are Anaerobic Digesters several times recently. The short answer is yes. They utilize the anaerobic digestion process for the treatment (albeit only partial at a slow rate, and not to watercourse discharge standards) of sewage. They are used from isolated locations where inhabited dwellings are […]

Biogas Production in China – Agricultural, Domestic and at Community Scale

Biogas production in China from agricultural organic waste is extensively utilised already and has potential to be developed further, to provide additional energy, and this is also highly sustainable energy for the nation. Most speak of Chinese biogas for the Agricultural, Domestic and Community uses. This article is limited to those applications. Introduction Even as […]

Biogas Plant Construction and Working Stages

The secret to understanding the most common biogas plant construction and working stages, is explained here for he most common AD plant type. By far the most common biogas plants are those based upon one single anaerobic digestion tank, and they are often known as “Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors” (CSTRS). They are often called single […]
