Biogas from manure and renewable raw materials

“Biogas typically refers to a mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas can be produced from regionally available raw materials such as recycled waste. It is a renewable energy source and in many cases exerts a very small carbon footprint.

Biogas is produced by anaerobic digestion with anaerobic bacteria or fermentation of biodegradable materials…. It is primarily methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes.

The gases methane, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide (CO) can be [remark: stored – in contrast to electricity (!!)] combusted or oxidized with oxygen. This energy release allows biogas to be used as a fuel; it can be used for any heating purpose, such as cooking. It can also be used in a gas engine to convert the energy in the gas into electricity and heat.”

Expertise since 2000

We were able to support a number of entrepreneurs in the conduct of plant approvals, structural or functional tenders, as well as in the preparation of policies and plans for agricultural biogas plants since 2000 and gained a wealth of experience itself.
