    Biological support from FM BioEnergy sees AD plant’s output double

    The operator of a crop-fed biogas plant has seen its energy output double in just six months following an overhaul of the digester biology by anaerobic digestion (AD) experts FM BioEnergy.

    Based in Consett, Co Durham, the 1 MW Generation X AD plant was operating at just 40% efficiency and was suffering from biological instability. But after control of the biology was handed to FM BioEnergy, the plant was successfully recommissioned and is now operating at more than 80% efficiency.

    When the Boxford Group commissioned their 0.5 MW AD plant in 2014, everything started well. However, they soon noticed their propionic and acetic acids climbing; this was causing them to reduce their feedstock levels, creating further problems as they are contracted to process a daily amount of apple pomace from an on-site fruit juice factory.

    Enzymes Increase Plant Capacity - Springvale Energies

    In 2014, Nigel Bloom set up Springvale Energies to develop a 499 kW AD plant, built by Binowa, at his farm, log cabin park and fishing lakes in Nottinghamshire. But after six months’ operation, gas production began to fluctuate. And when CHP production dropped from full capacity down to 475 kW – causing Nigel’s FIT payments and electricity sales to reduce by £860 per week – he realised his plant needed help.
