Anaerobic Digestion

Utilising anaerobic digestion Energy360 can provide complete systems to capture biogas, which can be used as a replacement for natural gas. Partnering with Wiley and Ökobit we can provide turnkey systems. Our Australian designed and supported system is guaranteed and delivers simple capital paybacks of approximately 6 years. A significant improvement on paybacks offered by our competitors.

Biogas is the by-product of anaerobic digestion (Energy 360 CASE STUDY) which can be used as a replacement for natural gas.

Biogas can aslo be stored without conversion to another energy source and used as needed to generate power. The electricity produced can be grid connected or used behind the meter.

Biodigesters have been used around the world for decades and the process is well proven.  It is a simple and valuable method of capturing the carbon energy within the waste stream, allowing the separation of energy, used for heat and power, An organic fertiliser and soil conditioner is also produced as a by product enabling carbon storage.

BENEFITS OF A BIOENERGY SYSTEM

  • Food and agricultural waste a part of the circular economy
  • Organic (non-synthetic) fertiliser will enhance soil carbon capture
  • No phosphate run off from fertiliser which reduces bluegreen algae
  • Renewable electricity
  • Naturally derived carbon dioxide for industry use
  • Prevents carbon dioxide emissions process, called digestate, can be used as high quality, valuable fertiliser

oekobit-biogas – Anaerobic digestion     As a major manufacturer and planner of biogas plants with over 200 national and international projects, ÖKOBIT is one of the most sought-after full-service suppliers within the biogas industry. They develop and build technically intelligent, substrate-flexible biogas and biomethane plants which perfectly correspond to the specific local conditions of our clients.

About Biogas
Biogas is a renewable, reliable and local source of energy. Biogas is a source of energy that can be converted into heat, electricity or used as a transport fuel. Biogas can also be upgraded into biomethane: a gas with a chemical composition very similar to natural gas. Biomethane can be injected into the gas grid and serve several uses for consumers such as heating, industrial purposes or fuel for gas vehicles.
Biogas is produced from the anaerobic (oxygen free) digestion of organic matter. It can be made from a large variety of organic resources, including industrial waste, agricultural waste, energy crops, sludge from waste water treatment and biowaste (co-digestion or mono-digestion of food waste and other types of biowaste).
In addition to energy production, anaerobic digestion also produces digestate – the material remaining after anaerobic digestion of biodegradable feedstocks. Digestate is a nutrient-rich material that can be used as a fertiliser and applied on agricultural land instead of chemical fertilisers.
