Biogas : Biomethane = Dietary fiber : Waste fibers

How to successfully manage change with waste fibers in your plant.

It is no coincidence that biogas technology is following a development trajectory towards biomethane production. In the energy and climate scenarios, in fact, the use of fossil carbon-based energy sources is under the magnifying glass of all scientists for their enormous impact on the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Many environmental measures will radically change the energy systems of our society in the next decade: we talk about the production of energy from renewable sources such as sun and wind, we talk about smart integration of energy networks, we talk about nations that have already banned starting from 2020 the marketing of cars fueled by petrol and diesel, and then we talk about the fundamental role given to the “king” of biofuels: biomethane.

Biomethane is the result of the conversion of carbon-based biomasses of any type, from the noblest ones, like the dedicated crops typically produced for animal feeding to the less noble as the livestock effluents.

The first thing that any plant culture produces is the “fiber”: fiber to build the texture of the plant with which it will produce its fruit.Producing fiber is much easier than producing grains or oil, and to produce biomethane is not “strictly necessary” conclude the life cycle of a plant, we can think of stopping ourselves at the vegetative development.Once the plant biomass is produced, the most efficient system for converting it into an interesting vector is anaerobic digestion.

Putting first the energy directives for the production of biomethane and the interests of renewables energy producers, the market can now count on two new synergistic strategies: install BioBANG to use the maximum amount of biomass suitable for the production of an “advanced biofuel” (production waste, seconds harvests, crop residues, agricultural by-products).

As all biogas producers know well, digestion of fibrous fractions is one of the most difficult tasks in biogas plants management: mixings, phase separation, hydrolysis phase length, low degradation, digestant dry substance increases, self-consumptions, and difficult pumpings are the main elements that make this road unfriendly.

BioBANG is the only biomasses pre-treatment system to enter the biomethane world from the front door.

Thanks to the controlled cavitation, the heart of the BioBANG technology, you sprinkle all the energy from the fibers because you transfer 100% of energy directly to the mass, and all the biomasses suitable for the production of an advanced biofuel can be efficiently converted into a “biological fuel” low environmental impact.

All BioBANG models are sold in turnkey solutions whether you are:

  1. A biogas/biomethane plants builder that designs and sells all over the world without limits of size, technological complexity, particular skills or requests of very demanding customers;
  2. A biogas producer that switches to biomethane (Repowering, Revamping) and wants to take advantage of the great flexibility in using waste fibers thanks to a tool that is easy to install and easy to use in any situation. Last but not least, with BioBANG you do not have to build additional digesters to increase volumes;

With BioBANG you exploit all the crop plans, optimizing the available lands to the maximum, and efficiently convert the fibers into biomethane. Biomethane that can be introduced into existing natural gas transport networks, or in those ready to withdraw it to transport it where it is more interesting to use it. Fibers for zootechnical uses and fibers for energy, all strictly produced naturally by agriculture and just with the use of the renewable solar source.

This combination will bring all the environmental benefits of this new era to all our farms and end-users, whether industries or drivers or simple domestic users.

The future is now, installs BioBANG and becomes an active part of the energy transition.
