Biogas plant given a new lease of life

Nordmethan, a company in the Weltec Biopower Group, has taken over an insolvent biogas plant in Germany. The company says it will modernise the 2,2 MW plant and return it to full operation as a going concern. The original plant had been set up in 2009 for the digestion of horse manure and the sale […]

Innovative analysis procedure for biogas substrates

  Weltec Biopower is developing a quick test for identifying inhibitors in biogas substrates. Input mass may contain substances that prevent efficient biogas production such as ammonium, copper, zinc, drugs and disinfectants which are often identified as inhibitors in slurry and manure. Even traces of these substances are detrimental to the bacteria in the digester […]

Lightning protection systems for biogas plants

  Complex and cost-intensive plants with fully automated processes are required to generate useable final products from biomass. A volatile mixture of gas and air is formed in the vicinity of fermentation and gas tanks, which can therefore be classified as potentially explosive atmospheres. Consequently, reliable protection concepts are required to ensure permanent availability and […]

Success of biogas in Africa

  Biogas has huge potential in Africa. It can be deployed in remote areas in order to provide stable supplies of power. Due to the high cost of diesel and the unreliability of many African electricity distribution networks it is becoming a viable alternative for stable clean power. Biogas can be generated from a variety […]
