In the tour that we took via our last article, we journaled the need for generating biogas at large scale and its efficient benefits. Now let us get a little technical on what are the methods followed in producing the biogas at an industrial scale.
The role of biogas generators
Large scale biogas generators operate solely on anaerobic digestion of the waste materials that we provide as the input feed. With predefined and customized setup of diverse parameters to induce the digestion process, generating biogas takes place pretty rapidly. This gives us an abundant amount of biogas that in turn, can provide us with electricity. On the whole, these plants or biogas reactors function on the basis of anaerobic digestion but at a faster rate.
Using thin stillages
Stillage, in colloquial terms is a form of industrial waste, that is energy-rich. Generally, you can obtain stillage from fermenting processes and from bio-ethanol production in specific. This waste material has the potential to generate an abundant amount of methane from the wastes that the industries dump. Thus, now a days they catch up to the trend and combine bio-ethanol production with the biogas production by bringing benefits to economic and environmental facets.
The efficient way to generate biogas at an industrial level
When we list out the pros and cons from both the types of generating biogas, going the classic way is the advantageous one. Because, you have to consider a fact that the stillages are abundantly rich in nitrogen and may break the ammonia-nitrogen ratio of the waste bulk. This in turn, will affect the digestion cycle.
Thus, using of biogas generators with the input feed being the simple organic wastes is a better option. Moreover, with plants like VNS Enviro’s “Bio igniter”, they consist of customized accessories like spring floating dome with higher digester volume. Thus, you will be assured of experiencing the benefits in the form of quality end product. Also, the slurry management system of the plant ensures that every waste product is recycled.
