The core of a biogas facility is an anaerobe digester, producing methane and carbon dioxide.
The digester is fed with energy rich produce, such as corn silage or other biodegradable waste, such as sewage sludge, produce waste or manure.
The biomass is then processed into, primarily, methane and carbon dioxide within the airtight methane digester.
This gas can be used for heating, electricity and many other purposes. A combustion engine or gas turbine is used to produce electricity and heat from the biogas.
The biogas can also be refined into biomethane, which can be fed into the natural gas grid.
Process Engineering has been entrusted with a variety of projects for these types of facilities. Below is listed a small selection of the projects, we have worked on.
A selection of previous biogas projects:
- Design and engineering of an NH3 and CO2 stripping absorber for a biogas facility
- Design of a slurry separation plant
- Process design of a NH3 stripping absorber on an existing biogas facility
