Organic waste streams, agricultural by-products and manure are valuable resources for the production of biogas. HoSt offers a total biogas plant solution for the anaerobic digestion of organic waste streams. But what is biomass, anaerobic digestion and biogas? What has to happen to convert the one into the other? And last but not least: what are the characteristics of a HoSt biogas plant?
Biogas is a renewable alternative for the fossil fuel natural gas, since the energy in biogas can be turned into biomethane, electricity and heat. Biogas is the gas that is produced during the decomposition of organic materials, such as: vegetable and fruit waste, manure, straw and sludge, by several subsequent chemical and biological processes. This method is known as digestion or fermentation.
Fermentation is another word for digestion. Besides digestion for production of biogas, fermentation takes place in various other situations, such as:
HoSt offers a total biogas plant solution for the anaerobic digestion of organic waste streams. With extensive experience, in-house knowledge and expertise since 1991, HoSt successfully realized hundreds of biogas projects worldwide.
