  • COD and FOS/TAC ratio in biogas applications

    Biogas Production As the price of crude oil fluctuates, humans are forced to consider the fact that there is a finite amount of oil on the planet available for our use. Biogas is a secondary energy source derived from renewable resources, which is converted into “end-point energy.”  Biogas is a result of anaerobic bacterial degradation of organic matter. Not only does ...
