Costs of Anaerobic Digestion and the Functions of a Biogas Business

The cost of anaerobic digestion plants varies greatly depending on their size and the feedstocks they use. Small-scale farm-based plants that use manure and are supplemented with purpose-grown crops to produce modest amounts of biogas are relatively inexpensive. They can function well, but as they require constant attention can be time-consuming to operate. Large, commercial […]

The Anaerobic Digestion Process

The anaerobic digestion (AD) process works by bacteria, which thrive in the absence of oxygen, breaking down the bio-degradable fraction of the waste to generate a stable deposit. This consequently aids to reduce hazardous emissions of dangerous greenhouse gases. That’s true, as biodegradable material which is just sent to garbage dump will give off a […]
