Biogas Comes From Manure and Food Scraps, and it’s Valuable

When food scraps, cow manure, and bio waste decompose in an anaerobic digester, a surprisingly valuable, stinky decomp gas is emitted. The gas mixture contains both methane and carbon dioxide which are more valuable as separate streams than mixed together, so our membrane separators do the hard work in dividing the molecular streams. Some biogas upgrading customers make money by piping the separated methane into the local natural gas gridline, while others may use the methane to fuel cars and trucks that run on compressed natural gas. For methane and carbon dioxide flow rates and various biogas upgrading configuration ideas, see this data sheet.
