  • Biomass and Integration in Future Energy Systems and the Bioeconomy

    Biomass was the primary source of materials and energy until the industrial revolution set off a series of major changes around two hundred years ago. In the industrialized world fossil fuels became the primary source for energy in the forms of electricity and heat and provided almost all fuels for transport. However, biomass continued to maintain an important role in the economies in both ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
