These days everyone is talking about sustainable energy, but actions speak louder than words. Using biogas from the fermentation of organic waste, INNIO's reciprocating engines can create heat and power as a reliable energy source to power your business today, tomorrow, and in the future.
How it works?
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.
Features & Benefits
- 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.
