Anaerobic Digestion is used to generate fuel (Biogas) from a sites wastewater and waste to provide onsite heat and electricity and reduce running costs.
Combustion engines are used to generate the electricity using the Biogas, which is generated from sewage sludge in an oxygen free tank or digester. Because the process is oxygen free the process is said to be anaerobic.
There are a large number of constituent gases in Biogas and listed below are the more significant ones:
Carbon Dioxide 40%
Hydrogen Sulphide 3000ppm
Our portable gas monitors help protect workers from these significant gas risks. From one to five gases in a single portable we have the monitor to alert the user to dangerous gases.
