Crop digestion plant chooses portable biogas analysers
Future Biogas creates opportunities for its farming customers to generate income streams by delivering reliable renewable energy. For success, it is vital for customers to know and monitor methane (CH4), oxygen (O2) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) levels. Accuracy with those readings is incredibly important.
David Allan of Future Biogas said, "We bought the Geotech BIOGAS 5000 portable biogas analyser after seeing it at a trade show. We had tried a similar unit from Germany, but we preferred the Geotech. I find the unit to be robust, accurate and easy to operate. It is a great improvement to its predecessor, one of which we also own. The increased portability is its best feature for me. The Geotech GA3000 fixed position biogas analyser came as part of an engine contract, and seems to work really well."
Crops to gas to cash
The customer's farm generates CH4 by anaerobic digestion of crops, then stores and uses the biogas in an engine to generate electricity. A minimum level of CH4 is required which the analyser measures and Future Biogas sets up the engine based on the CH4 level. A maximum level of O2 and H2S is controlled on the system based on the readout from the analyser.
Future Biogas (http://www.futurebiogas.com) specialises in the construction and operation of biogas plants. These plants operate on a range of locally sourced biomass feedstocks, generating clean, renewable and reliable energy mainly through anaerobic digestion of crop biomass.
