As more mandates for a minimum of ethanol in gasoline and biodiesel in diesel come into effect, major oil companies are blending higher percentages of biofuels at their terminals. A quick analytical measurement method to assess the blend ratio can be a valuable asset for fuel distributors, engine manufacturers, fleet operators, and regulatory agencies. The InfraCal Biodiesel and Ethanol Blend Analyzers offer a quick way to verify that fuel blends are on spec. They are ideal for use for non-technical personnel and...
Biogas plants produce considerable surface water from silage and traffic areas that is highly contaminated with COD and nitrogen. Converted into population equivalents for wastewater treatment plants, add as comparative value the freight rates of the existing approx. 8,500 biogas plants across Germany amount to a total freight estimated at 8 million - 10 million PE. The pollution loads of these surface waters represent an enormous risk for our receiving waters and our groundwater if the current practice of...
Biogas is a renewable energy source created during Anaerobic Digestion (AD). It is a natural process that takes place within digesters where organic matter is broken down in the absence of oxygen. Production generally takes place within agricultural or industrial plants, such as breweries or food processing sites and creates a gas rich in carbon dioxide and methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
Combining industrial performance and sustainable development while remaining competitive requires that the biofuels and biogas industry ensure industrial process safety, reduce operational costs, implement solutions providing significant savings and comply with environmental regulations, which ultimately lead to the public’s acceptance of a site.
Cogeneration plants with Turboden ORC can produce heat from biomass and electrical power from biomass with high efficiency and user friendly operation. The generated power usually ranges between 200 kW and 15 MW electric.

Energy will have more influence in the future than in the past, not only in the economic field, but also in social and individual behaviours. VITONE ECO supports its customers in this important sector supplying with plants, which assure great efficiency and whose use fits into an idea of sustainable development. VITONE ECO offers solutions for the treatment of mineral oils and fuels from refineries and lagoons, dehydration of plants producing biogas, production processes of non-fossil fuels, such as biodiesel and...
ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel Technologies is a global leading supplier of technologies, production plants, systems and services for the animal feed, aqua feed, and pet food industries and for the biomass pelleting industry.
MDF production requires large amounts of energy. Most of the demand of energy is thermal: steam for the cooking and refining process, hot gas for drying and thermal oil for the continuous press. VYNCKE offers customized energy solutions, burning a wide variety of process fuels and external fuels (all types of biomass). The energy plant can be designed to produce steam in a direct way (through an integrated steam boiler) or in an indirect way via a thermal oil-steam heat exchanger. The system can be adjusted to...
Companies or medium-large industries have to do with different types of organic by-products coming from their production processes, as coffee, sugar, ethanol, fruit juice, soft drinks, dairy products, oil, rice and other cereals. These by-products are a cost for the company, both from environmental and economical point of view: the leftovers need to be stocked and then disposed. The construction of a biogas plant represent the most efficient solution, eliminating the cost of disposal and at the same time, utilizing...
The hierarchy of waste management places resource recovery as preferred over incineration or landfilling. Pyrocal CCT systems allow recovery of resources that traditional waste to energy (WTE) processes do not.
The significance of Compressed Natural gas (CNG), as alternative fuels in natural gas-powered vehicles (NGV) to petrol and diesel, has recently increased a lot . Alongside high fuel prices, the reasons for this include in particular the pollution our environment suffers when mineral oil products are burned. The use of CNG reduce a lot the CO2 emissions.
Testing and evaluating the quality of solid fuels, biofuels or secondary fuels are extremely important for the development of the industry. This applies both to their production, and to matching to different technologies. Thanks to modern scientific-research facilities, the laboratories of the Central Mining Institute have a comprehensive offer in this area, containing also the consulting and training services.
Being driven by new legislation, the production of substitute fuel/alternative fuel will be gain momentum in the next few years, as well as the expected increase of recycling rate in municipalities. This means a lot of waste streams can be turned into alternative fuel for the coal fired power plant, cement and lime industry, biomass power plant, or other industrial boiler systems that still burning fossil fuels.
Farming operations that require heat also benefit from the CHP system. The return on investment will vary dependent on whether there is low or no cost access to wood chips and whether the 45 kWh of power can be fully utilized on site or, if not, what rate the power can be sold to the grid.
Small rural communities or work camps are ideal applications for the Borealis wood power plant. Its application fit is best when the heat can be used to support a micro-heating-network for 25 homes or fewer in conjunction with a community centre as base load. Power needs must exceed the 45 kWh or it can be sold to the grid.
