Biogas Production – Industrial Biogas and Syngas
In the industrial sector, anaerobic digesters are used as a primary treatment unit in the effluent treatment chain. Gasification technology has its place as well.
An anaerobic digester presents the following advantages:
- Cost effective organic load reduction (BOD) of industrial waste effluent
- Reduction of energy expenses through on-site biogas utilization
- Reduction of greenhouse gases and selling carbon credits for revenue
BIOGAS Equity 2 is a turn-key provider of design, project management, digester start-up, digester optimization services to industrial owners and operators.
Industrial organic solid waste
Industrial organic solid wastes (slaughterhouses, fruit and vegetable from food processors, etc.) are often hauled at great cost and are generally disposed in a landfill or at composting sites. Hauling costs are unpredictable and methane is still released into the atmosphere.
Anaerobic digestion of solid effluent on site is often desirable to stabilize waste management cost and take advantage of the biogas energy utilization. Anaerobic digesters can offer cost advantages to other biosolid disposal alternatives such as incinerators.
Industrial liquid waste
Anaerobic digesters have been used for years as a primary treatment in industrial wastewater plants. They are very efficient at reducing high organic load at a relatively low operational rate.
Profound knowledge of the effluent characteristics and available technology is essential to ensure effluent and proposed technology compatibility and to guarantee long-term viability of the system.
BIOGAS Equity 2 offers such biogas engineering services to industrial owners and operators willing to integrate anaerobic digestion as part of their wastewater treatment solution. Waste fluid from breweries, slaughter houses, softdrink
Wet gasification of the rest
If the industrial waste consists of non organics such as PVC pipes and rags or cellulose and lignin waste such as saw dust, bark, forest and construction lumber, fruit shells and stones, this patented technology is appropriate. Even toxins like mercury from batteries can be converted into a non soluble salt that can be added to concrete as filler. The advantage of this system is that the created syngas is free of tar and only contains hydrogen, carbon monoxide and air. The CHP exhaust is clean.
