Book Excerpt :

In recent years, the importance of biogas energy has risen manifold and has become universal. This is due to the realization that biogas capture and utilization has great potential in controlling global warming. By capturing biogas wherever it is formed, we not only tap a source of clean energy, but we also prevent the escape of methane to the atmosphere. Given that methane has 25 times greater global warming potential than CO2, methane capture through biogas energy in this manner can contribute substantially towards global warming control.

Book Short Summary:

The International Conference on the State of the Art on Biogas Technology, Transfer and Diffusion was held in Cairo, Egypt, from 17 to 24 November 1984. The Conference was organized by the Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASR T), the Egyptian National Research Centre (NRC), the Bioenergy Systems and Technology project (BST) of the US Agency for International Development (US/AID) Office of Energy, and the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). A number of international organizations and agencies co-sponsored the Conference. More than 100 participants from 40 countries attended. The purpose of the Conference was to assess the viability of biogas technology (BGT) and propose future courses of action for exploiting BGT prospects to the fullest extent. The Conference emphasized a balanced coverage of technical, environ mental, social, economic and organizational aspects relevant to biogas systems design, operation and diffusion. It was organized to incorporate experiences that are pertinent, for the most part, to developing countries. In addition to the wide spectrum of presentations and country programs, structured and non-structured discussions among the participants were strongly encouraged in thematic sessions at round-table discussions, and through personal contacts during poster sessions and field trips. It was clear from the enthusiastic response of most participants that the Conference, in large measure, succeeded in fulfilling its mission. Although draft papers were distributed to all participants, it was felt that the results obtained were worthy of organized and refined documentation. And this is precisely what this book intends to do.

Book Short Summary:

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Agrarian Studies, grade: Very Good, , course: Tropical Land Resources Management, language: English, abstract: Abstract The study was conducted in North Wollo, Mersa-Chekorsa village, Ethiopia in 2006/2007, where animal dung for biogas production is available. The overall objective of the study was to introduce economically feasible, technically acceptable and environmentally friendly biogas plant to the farming community and other potential users in Ethiopia. The research was carried on two types of biogas plants of 3m3 capacity (1) geo-membrane plastic (two single and two double layered) biogas plants constructed below and above the ground surface and (2) fixed-dome biogas plant. Each bio-digesters was fed with a mixture of 75Kg of cow-dung and 75Kg pure water at equal volume and proportion. Amount of gas and slurry were measured using calibrated biogas burner and weight balance respectively. The quality of the slurry (i.e. total-N and organic matter content) were analyzed in the laboratory using Kjeldahl and ash method respectively. The bio-digesters were compared after gas has completely produced at the end of 40 days of fermentation with respect to amount of gas and slurry produced, quality of slurry in terms of total-N and organic matter content. Economic analysis of the bio-digesters was carried out using cost-benefit analysis. The social aspect of using biomass and biogas technologies and environmental impact assessment of the new geo-membrane plastic biogas technology was also assessed. The emissions of CO2 and CH4 were computed by measuring the production of biogas in the two models of bio-digester. Fermented slurry contained larger nitrogen content than fresh cow dung in both models of bio-digester. The geo-membrane plastic biogas plant gave higher net benefit than fixed-dome biogas plant. So, from this, investment on geo-membrane plastic bio-digester is economically feasible. Environmental impact assessment of the technology was studied and found that 360.04 m3 of CO2 and 600.06 m3 CH4 was prevented from emitting in to the atmosphere and save 0.562 hectare of forest per year. Generally, it was found that, the geo-membrane cylindrical film bio-digester technology was found cheap and simple way to produce gas in the study area and it was recommended to introduce the technology into the rural areas having even and high temperature which is similar to the study area more preferably to an area having mean daily temperature greater than 20 OC. Key words:Geo-membrane ,fixed-dome bio-digester, biogas, quality of fermented slurry,economical feasibility

Book Short Summary:

Biogas has the potential to be part of the transition towards a more sustainable energy system. Biogas is a renewable energy source and can play an important role in modern waste management systems. Biogas production can also help recirculate nutrients back to farmland. Besides all this, biogas is a locally produced energy source with the potential to increase global resource efficiency, since it can lead to more value and less waste, as well as decreased negative environmental effects. However, biogas production systems are complex, including different substrates, different applications for biogas and digestate, and different technology solutions for digestion, pre-treatment and for upgrading the raw gas. To increase the development of biogas production systems, knowledge sharing is a key factor. To increase this knowledge sharing, comprehensible analysis and comparisons of biogas production systems are necessary. Thus, studies are needed to verify the resource efficiency of biogas production systems from different perspectives. The aim of this thesis is to perform a systems analysis of biogas production systems and to explore how to analyse and compare biogas production systems. An additional aim is to study biogas production systems from a systems perspective, with a focus on environment, energy and economy. Studying biogas production systems from different system levels, as well as from different approaches, is beneficial because it results in deeper knowledge of biogas systems and greater opportunities to identify synergies. Systems studies of biogas are important, since biogas systems are often complex and integrated with other systems. In this thesis, biogas systems analyses are performed at different levels. In the widest system study, classifications of different biogas plants are analysed and classifications in different European countries are compared, with the prospect of paving the way for a new common classification for biogas plants in Europe. Today, classifications vary between countries, and hence comparisons of plants in different countries are difficult. In the narrowest system study, a new methodology for analysing energy demand at different biogas production plants has been developed. The aim was to develop a methodology that is applicable for all kinds of biogas plants with energy inputs. The methodology describes the process of analysing energy demand and allocating energy to sub-processes and unit processes. Further, an approach for assessing the resource efficiency of different treatment options for organic waste was designed. The approach includes environmental, economic and energy perspectives, and was applied to five different regions with several food manufacturing companies. A study of treatment options for organic waste from a single food company was also conducted. The results showed that biogas production is a resource-efficient way to treat waste from the food industry. The approach enables a wider analysis of biogas systems, and the results from the applications show the complexity of assessing resource efficiency. It is also shown that it is important to understand that the resource efficiency of a system is always in relation to the substituted system. In this thesis, three different approaches to analysing biogas production systems are presented: categorization, resource efficiency analysis and energy demand analysis. These approaches all contribute to the understanding of biogas systems and can help, in different ways, to increase knowledge about biogas systems in the world. If knowledge about different biogas systems can be easily disseminated, more of the unused potential of biogas production may be realized, and hence more fossil fuels can be replaced within the energy system. Biogas har potentialen att vara en del av övergången till ett mer hållbart energisystem. Biogas är en förnybar energikälla som kan spela en viktig roll i moderna avfallshanteringssystem. Produktion av biogas kan även hjälpa till att återcirkulera näringsämnen tillbaka till jordbruksmark. Förutom allt detta är biogas en lokalt producerad energikälla med potential att öka resurseffektiviteten i världen, eftersom det kan leda till ökat värde och mindre avfall samt minskade negativa miljöeffekter. Dock är biogasproduktionssystem komplexa, inklusive exempelvis olika substrat, användning för biogasen och rötresterna, olika tekniska lösningar för rötresterna såväl som förbehandling av substrat och uppgradering av rågas. För att öka utvecklingen av biogasproduktionssystem är kunskapsdelning en nyckelfaktor. För att öka kunskapsdelningen är tydliga analyser och jämförelser av biogasproduktionssystem nödvändiga. Därför behövs studier för att verifiera resurseffektiviteten för biogasproduktionssystem från olika perspektiv. Syftet med denna avhandling är att utföra systemanalyser av biogasproduktionssystem och att undersöka hur man analyserar och jämför biogasproduktionssystem. Vidare är syftet också att studera biogasproduktionssystem ur ett systemperspektiv med fokus på miljö, energi och ekonomi. Det är fördelaktigt att studera biogasproduktionssystem på olika systemnivåer och utifrån olika tillvägagångssätt, eftersom kunskapen om biogassystem fördjupas och möjligheterna att hitta synergier ökar. Systemstudier av biogas är viktigt eftersom biogassystem ofta är komplexa och integrerade i andra system. I denna avhandling utförs analyser på olika nivåer av biogassystemen. På den högsta systemnivån analyseras klassificeringar av olika biogasanläggningar. Klassificeringar i olika europeiska länder jämförs, med förhoppningen att bana väg mot en ny, gemensam klassificering för biogasanläggningar i Europa. Idag varierar klassificeringarna mellan länder och därför är jämförelser av anläggningar mellan länder svåra. På den lägsta systemnivån utvecklades en ny metod för analys av energibehov vid olika biogasproduktionsanläggningar. Syftet var att utveckla en metod för alla typer av biogasanläggningar. Metodiken beskriver processen för att analysera energibehov och fördela energin till delprocesser och enhetsprocesser. Vidare utformades en metod för att bedöma resurseffektiviteten hos olika behandlingsalternativ för organiskt avfall. Metoden inkluderar miljö, ekonomi och energi och tillämpades i fem olika regioner med flera livsmedelsindustriföretag. En studie av behandlingsalternativ för organiskt avfall från ett enda livsmedelsföretag genomfördes också. Resultaten visade att biogasproduktion är ett resurseffektivt sätt att behandla avfall från livsmedelsindustrin. Metoden möjliggör en bredare analys av biogassystem och resultaten från tillämpningarna visar komplexiteten i att utvärdera resurseffektiviteten. Det visas också att det är viktigt att förstå att ett systems resurseffektivitet alltid är i förhållande till det substituerade systemet. I denna avhandling presenteras tre olika metoder för analys av biogasproduktionssystem: kategorisering, resurseffektivitetsanalys och energibehovsanalys. Dessa tillvägagångssätt bidrar alla till att förstå biogassystem och kan på olika sätt bidra till att öka kunskapen för biogassystem i världen. Med bra system för att sprida kunskap om olika biogassystem kan mer av den outnyttjade potentialen för biogasproduktion realiseras och därmed kan fler fossila bränslen i energisystemet ersättas, samtidigt som de övriga fördelarna med biogas också kommer samhället till nytta.

Book Short Summary:

Solid waste management is currently a major issue worldwide with numerous areas reaching critical levels. Many developing countries and countries in transition still miss basic waste management infrastructure and awareness. It is here that many of the solid waste management problems and challenges are currently being faced. As such, waste-to-energy (WTE) consists of a proven and continuously developing spectrum and range of technologies in a number of (mostly) developed countries. However, it’s integration in developing countries and systems in transition is often faced with scepticism and a complex set of barriers which are quite unique and differ greatly from those where WTE has been validated and applied over the years. Waste-to-Energy: Opportunities and Challenges for Developing and Transition Economies will address this issue both theoretically and using concrete examples, including: · contributions from numerous scholars and practitioners in the field, · useful lessons and rules of thumb, · both successful and failed cases, and · real-life examples and developments. Waste-to-Energy approaches this dynamic aspect of environmental engineering and management in a methodical and detailed manner making it an important resource for SWM planners and facility operators as well as undergraduate and post graduate students and researchers.
