Energy from Biogas

ENER-G designs, installs and operates biogas combined heat and power (CHP) systems for a variety of digestion plants.

Turnkey delivery of individual biogas CHP projects hinges on our unique in-house resources that include a specialist design team, production facilities and dedicated team of service engineers. Thanks to our flexible engineering approach all our solutions include bespoke system design.

Our people have a vast experience and technical expertise which enables us to deliver our solutions to a wide range of clients. Our advanced technology utilises the biogas from the digestion plant and provides green energy.  

Biogas is predominantly a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide (CO2). This composition makes biogas well suited for combustion in gas engines. The biogas serves as a high-energy, renewable fuel that can be used as a substitute for fossil fuels. Biogas-fuelled gas engines improve waste management while help maximise the use of an economical energy supply.

Compared to fossil fuels utilising biogas in the engines avoids any additional greenhouse gas emissions. Due to the organic nature of the components of biogas, burning it in a gas engine for power generation emits the same amount of CO2 into the atmosphere as was originally absorbed during the process of photosynthesis in the natural CO2 cycle.

 

The ENER-G concept

We use biogas in the ENER-G CHP unit, where it is burned in a reciprocating engine. The ENER-G cogeneration technology enables customers to realise the maximum economic and ecological benefits available from using biogas for power generation.

The unit can be:

  • Internal
  • External, in a fully mobile, containerised unit

 Energy generated

  • Electricity
  • Low temperature hot water (90°C) or
  • Medium temperature hot water (120°C) or
  • Steam up to 220°C

Typical biogas installations

  • Waste Water Treatment (WWT) works (paper mills, industry)
  • Sewage treatment works
  • Farming consortiums
  • Industrial manufacturers of organic products
  • Breweries, distilleries
  • Food processing and manufacturing
  • Waste management facilities
  • Chemical and pharmaceutical industry
