Gas Engines - Biogas Solutions
The process of biogas generation is divided into three steps: Preparation of the bio-input fermentation, and post-treatment of the residual material.
At the start, the organic material is collected in a primary pit,sterilized to remove harmful germs in case of food waste and moved to the digester. The biogas produced in the digester is collected in a gas storage tank to ensure a continuous supply of gas, independent of fluctuations in the gas production. Finally, the biogas is fed into a gas engine. For safety reasons, the installation of a gas flare is recommended so that excess gas can be burned off in the event of excessive gas production.
- An alternative disposal of dung, liquid manure and biowaste, while simultaneously harnessing energy—a valuable substitute for conventional fuels.
- High potential for reduction of greenhouse gases.
- Highly efficient for combined onsite power and heat generation.
- Remaining substrate is used as high-quality agricultural fertilizer, characterized by its neutralized acid, higher ph-value, retained nutrients and lack of odor.
