Biogas as fuel

  • More Biogas Småland AB

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 

    More Biogas Småland was formed in February 2011. The Company has 22 co-owners of which 18 are farmers in the near region of Kalmar. More Biogas has a fermentation plant, the plant produce compressed vehicle fuel for local use. Raw material is manure from farmer´s farms and food waste from households in the neighboring municipalities. The biogas plant is in Mosekrog, about 10 km north of Kalmar

  • Käppala - an efficient water treatment plant

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 

    Käppalaverket is one of the world's most efficient water treatment installations, with the entire northern Stockholm as a catchment area. Apart from the fact that the installation treats water for over 500 000 people, it also produces biogas, running 100 busses.

  • Gasendal – A world class biogas plant

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 

    When opened in spring 2007, the Gasendal plant, was the largest biogas upgrading facility in the world.

    The plant receives biogas from Gryaab, a local wastewater treatment plant, and upgrades it to natural gas quality. The gas, which is injected into the natural gas grid, is used primarily as vehicle fuel in accordance with the green gas principle, in a way similar to the trade in green electricity. By replacing petrol with biogas in vehicles, carbon dioxide emissions is cut by up to 15,000 tons per year.

  • Biogas plant Tuvan, Skellefteå

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 

    The municipalty of Skellefteå collect waste from homes and workplaces and produces there own biogas fuel for use in the municipality cars and in the public buses.

  • A combined fossil fuel free process of lignocellulosic pretreatment with biological hydrogen production

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 

    As the price of fossil fuels increase with diminishing reserves biofuel production for transportation is seen as a viable alternative for current as well as future energy demands. Microbial biofuel generation from lignocellulosic plant materials holds great promise with H2 being regarded as the gold standard since only water vapor is emitted when burned. Although the potential exists for this to be an economically viable substitute several issues are still to be resolved. Lignocellulosic plant material contains cellulose hemicellulose and lignin.

  • Compost and Biogas from Organic Waste Materials

    Type: 
    Product

    A researcher at the University of California Davis working in cooperation with an outside collaborator have developed a multi-stage process and system for treating organic waste materials. This process produces a high-quality compost derived from food waste and other organic materials while avoiding the environmental problems of traditional composting methods such as emissions of odors volatile organic compounds and other noxious gases.
