Biogas

JENBACHER gas engines can produce energy from biogas.

Biogas is a source of heat, electricity and fertiliser. Biogas can be produced from agricultural and livestock waste. Oxygen-free fermentation allows a lot of organic waste from the agricultural, food and feed industry to be recycled. This makes it possible to use the generated gas in INNIO Jenbacher plants for energy production. The proven solutions of the INNIO Jenbacher plants over the years guarantee a stable power generation based on biogas. The energy produced can feed the public power grid, industrial facilities, and provide for personal energy needs. Thermal energy can be a source of district heating or heating for private facilities.

How does it work

Biogas consists of methane and carbon dioxide. The composition of biogas can vary between 45-87% methane and 13-55% carbon dioxide, and there are usually impurities of hydrogen and hydrogen sulphide. After cleaning the biogas from carbon dioxide, biomethane is produced, which is absolutely analogous to natural gas, differing only in its origin.

The process of producing biogas is divided into three steps: Preparation of the organic material, fermentation and further processing of the residual material.

First the organic material is collected in a special pit, which is sterilised to remove harmful microbes, and transferred to the bioreactor. The biogas produced in the bioreactor is collected in a gas storage tank to ensure an uninterrupted supply of gas regardless of changes in gas production. Finally, the biogas is fed into a gas-fired plant, which generates electrical and thermal energy.

Benefits and special features

  • Generating profit from waste. Alternative disposal of manure, slurry and biowaste with simultaneous electricity generation, solves both the waste issue and generates additional profit by selling electricity to the grid.

  • Efficiency and reliability. INNIO Jenbacher plants are processing biogas all over the world and are the industry benchmark for reliability and efficiency when operating on the most difficult gas types.

  • Environment. Reducing the greenhouse effect.

  • High efficiency. High local cogeneration efficiency. Generate electricity with an efficiency of 47% and together with heat up to 90%.

  • High-quality fertiliser. The remaining substrate is used as a high-quality agricultural fertiliser, characterised by its neutralised acidity, higher pH value, preservation of nutrients and absence of odour. Digestor sludge is a high-quality agricultural fertilizer that can be used in your farm or sold.
