  • Busting Biomethane Myths

    Over the past few years, more and more companies have woken up to the financial and environmental benefits to be gained by making the most of their organic waste streams. In fact, the anaerobic digestion (AD) industry – which converts millions of tonnes of food, sewage and farm waste into renewable energy (biogas) and biofertiliser – has been one of the UK’s biggest success ...

  • Biogas-to-biomethane upgrading plant

    Chesterfield BioGas (CBG) supplied the UK’s first biogas upgrading plant to produce clean biomethane for direct injection into the national gas grid for use by all consumers. The project was successfully completed and gas injected into the national grid at the wastewater treatment site of Thames Water site at Didcot, Oxfordshire in October 2010. This achievement was a benchmark moment for ...

  • Towards a standardization of biomethane potential tests

    Production of biogas from different organic materials is a most interesting source of renewable energy. The biomethane potential (BMP) of these materials has to be determined to get insight in design parameters for anaerobic digesters. Although several norms and guidelines for BMP tests exist, inter-laboratory tests regularly show high variability of BMPs for the same substrate. A workshop was ...

  • Biomethane enters the gas grid article for energy world

    The Carbon Plan, published in 2011, aims to reduce UK carbon emissions by a quarter from 1990 levels. With the current policies in place, the UK is on target to reduce emissions by over a third by 2020 and with the introduction of new technologies this should increase to an 80% reduction by 2050. However, currently around half the UK’s carbon emissions result from heat related processes and ...

  • Biogas upgrading: Membrane separation takes over

    Abstract Due to governmental incentives and growing environmental awareness, it becomes increasingly attractive to upgrade biogas to natural gas quality and inject it into the natural gas grid or to use it as transport fuel. In this way, the biomethane can be utilized with the highest energy efficiency. Progressively, effort is being put into the utilization of organic waste streams in ...

  • SGBI opinion article: shale gas

    Government perceives electric vehicles to be a panacea that will solve problems surrounding air quality and CO2 emissions simultaneously. The EV has two main selling points: reduced CO2 emissions and high efficiency. However, these are only valid at a superficial level and the argument disintegrates under any level of scrutiny. In terms of CO2 emissions, EVs replace ‘average’ cars to ...
