  • Biogas in Asia

    The development of biogas production and monitoring has had many twists and turns, from its early days in Germany to the heady days of support through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).   The fall in the price of carbon credits, which rewarded reduction in emissions of methane (CH4) - a potent greenhouse gas - and use of methane from waste as renewable energy, has hit Asia ...

  • CHP efficiency for biogas

    Combined heat and power plant efficiency is a function of the conversion efficiency of the energy in the fuel gas to useful energy in the form of electricity and heat. A combined heat and power (CHP) plant is typically a reciprocating gas engine that uses the energy in the gas to drive a crank shaft. The crank shaft turns an alternator to ...

  • Cleaning biogas with bacteria

    Organic materials added to an anaerobic digester commonly contain sulphur components. During the anaerobic digestion process, the sulphur is converted into hydrogen sulphide (H2S), which is absorbed by the biogas. When the biogas produced in an AD plant goes on to be combusted in a gas engine or boiler, the H2S will give off sulphur dioxide (SO2) and sulphuric acid ...

  • Easy payback from biogas monitoring

    There is a strong business case for biogas monitoring and CHP protection. A fixed biogas analyser may cost some £6-10,000 and monitor gas every few minutes day and night. By comparison it can save its own cost many times over by protecting CHP engines from expensive unplanned downtime, biogas engine ...

  • National brewery benefits from biogas

    Anheuser-Busch has installed anaerobic digestion systems at 10 of its 12 large breweries in the U.S., with an 11th system in design. Primary drivers are cost-avoidance for wastewater treatment fees and fossil fuel purchases. ANHEUSER-BUSCH, owner of 12 large breweries in the U.S., has committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 5 percent from 2005 levels by 2010. The company is well ...

  • Diagnosing the effects of pilot fuel quality on exergy terms in a biogas run dual fuel diesel engine

    This work presents the exergy balances of biogas dual fuel combustion modes using two different pilot fuels in a single–cylinder diesel engine. The main focus is on the use of biodiesel (BD) as a pilot in place of fossil diesel fuel. The results reveal that the important exergy loss recovery sources are the exhaust gas and cooling water exergy. By accessing these losses, there is an increase of ...

  • A Summary of Available Analytical Methods for the Determination of Siloxanes in Biogas

    ABSTRACT The importance of measuring siloxanes has increased with the recent growth of the landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) market. Siloxanes and other biogas impurities can form a residue upon combustion in engines that may increase maintenance and reduce engine lifetime.  A siloxanes analysis can assist with either determining if a bioaas purification system is needed, or if a system is ...
