Low Pressure Storage of Biogas

low-pressure-biogas-storage

Selection of an appropriate biogas storage system makes a significant contribution to the efficiency and safety of a biogas plant.  A biogas storage system compensates fluctuations in the production and consumption of biogas as well as temperature-related changes in volume. There are two broad categories of biogas storage systems: Internal Biogas Storage Tanks are integrated into […]

Process Description of an Anaerobic Digestion Plant

AD Plant

An anaerobic digestion plant (or AD plant) is a decentralized energy system, which not only helps in sustainable management of organic wastes but also helps to attain self-sufficiency in heat and power requirements. The major components of an anaerobic digestion plant are waste collection system, anaerobic digester, effluent treatment plant, biogas holder, and power generating […]

Output from a Biogas Plant

A biogas plant produces two outputs, biogas and digestate; both can be further processed or utilized to produce secondary outputs. Biogas can be used for producing electricity and heat, as a natural gas substitute and also a transportation fuel. A combined heat and power plant system (CHP) not only generates power but also produces heat […]

Anaerobic Digestion and Rural Development

The rural population of developing countries exhibit unique resource optimization capabilities as compared to urban populations. Tracts of land are cultivated and cattle are reared and the produce is sold off in the market or consumed. The wastes generated from crop cultivation and rearing animals are also utilised domestically. While the dung of animals is […]
