Biogas Group

Main goals for the biogas group : Increase the usage of biogas from organic matter

 - organic municipal wastes
 - industrial wastes
 - agricultural wastes
 - agricultural residues
 - wood

This will lead to substation of fossil fuels, and reduced environmental effects of uncontrolled anaerobic degradation of organic matters.

Sub goals:

1. Technology for Norwegian conditions
     - climate
     - size of plants
     - low cost
     - usage of biogas

2. Co-fermentation including pre-treatment methods to increase biogas production

    - Steam exploitation
    - Micro Wave pyrolysis
    - Thermal hydrolysis
    - Ensilage

3. Process control and optimization

    - Energy input/output
    - Controlling parameters
    - Reactor technology

4. Post-treatment and resirculation of process water for reduced transportation of biowaste

    - Magnesium ammonium phosphate
    - Absorbents
    - Ammonia stripping
    - Filtration

Projects

  - Biogas as part of the agricultural value chain
  - From biomass to biogas
