Processes in a biogas installation
During the process of anaerobic digestion, or microbiological fermentation, the organic matter goes through several processes for controlled decomposition of biogas production. In most cases, this happens in an anaerobic digester: a closed tank, in which the conversion of organic matter takes place, in absence of oxygen. In short: the carbon compounds (proteins, carbohydrates and fats) from the biomass are converted in a mixture of approximately 60% of methane and 40% of carbon dioxide: biogas.
Designing a biogas installation
HoSt does not only design biogas plants, but offers a complete solution: from feasibility studies, advice, and project development to building, assembly, and maintenance. The designing process of a HoSt biogas plant starts roughly with three questions:
The output of a biogas plant basically consists of biogas and digestate. What is done with this after it gets out of the digester, depends on a few things, like:
