Biogas Cogeneration (CHP) Articles

  • Multipoint systems measure flare gases – Case Study

    To mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, many companies reuse their biogas for cogeneration, but the amount of biogas produced often exceeds the amount needed for cogeneration. In such cases, it is often not economical to purify, compress and store the gas for later use, so it is flared off. Accurate mass ...

  • Tamar Energy’s Basingstoke Biogas CHP Plant - Case Study

    Tamar Energy’s Basingstoke anaerobic digestion (AD) facility is located in Hampshire. It was commissioned in 2013. The AD plant converts food waste into biogas. This renewable fuel generated is used on-site (power and heat) and the electricity is exported to the national grid, reducing carbon emissions while improving the environment. The Basingstoke site is one of Tamar Energy’s ...

  • Biogas cleaning / conditioning - A requirement for optimal functioning of CHP systems

    Biogas is obtained through the anaerobic decomposition (putrefaction) of organic matter. It contains methane (CH4) in varying proportions, ranging from 35% to 70%, a proportion which largely depends on production methods and the materials involved in the process. This methane concentration is what enables biogas to be used as fuel. The release of methane into the atmosphere contributes to an ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
