Biogas Plant of the Month November - Biogas Plant Bieringen


Built in
- 2010 / Extension 2014
Power - 800 kWel / Extension: 975 kWel (up to 1.2 MWel)
Input material - Corn silage, whole crop silage, grass silage

  • Name: Biogasanlage Bieringen
  • Owner: Biogaspark Neckar-Odenwald (BNO)
  • Built in: 2010 / Extension 2014
  • Power: 800 kWel / Extension: 975 kWel (up to 1.2 MWel)
  • Input material: Corn silage, whole crop silage, grass silage
  • UTS Scope of delivery: Triton® fermenter / secondary fermenter (ring-in-ring) with concrete roof as well as one storage tank with foil roof and gas storage, UTS Service-Boxes, UTS pump technology, UTS solids feeder, UTS control technology and UTS separator, Extension: NEW Hydraulic mixing technology (Blades with Ø 1500 mm)
  • Features: The biogas plant with originally planned 800 kW capacity is now constantly producing 975 kW – and in peak times even 1.2 MW since the plant participates in the German flex-bonus program. The increase in power of the biogas plant is caused by the new UTS mixing technology which can handle the increased amounts of substrate without any problem because of the bigger mixer blade in combination with a special form. The advantages of the new mixers are a higher thrust power (4,0 – 6,0 kN) and the flexibility when it comes to substrates as well as a reduction in mixing times. The biogas plant Bieringen is able to save nearly 50 % of mixing times which means that the mixers are in operation only about 10 minutes per hour – with a substrate increase of only 10 tons per day!

Biogas Plant of the Month March - Victor Valley


Built in
- 2013
Power - 350 kWel
Substrates - Municipal Sludge, External High Strength Wastes (FOG, Food Wastes, etc.)

  • Name: Victor Valley Omnivore Biogas Plant, Victorville, CA, USA
  • Owner: Anaergia / Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority
  • Built in: 2013

  • Features: This plant is a full scale retrofit to an existing 300,000 gallon digester at a municipal wastewater treatment plant. The digester roof was ugraded from a floating cover to a double membrane gas holder. A recuperative thickening system, utilizing Anaergia´s SST 225, was installed as well as a high strength waste receiving skid. The digesters were equipped with hydraulic mixers and service-boxes including platforms. The service-boxes were modified to employ a solid skirt gas curtain to withstand an operating pressure of 35 mbar. By utilizing the existing digester heating, only the recirculation pumps had to be retrofitted. The Anaegia Omnivore concept allows a capacity increase of up to 300 % as the digester is now designed to operate at a loading rate of 4.5 kg VS / m³-day at 6 - 8 % DM of wastewater sludge and external organic wastes. The construction phase is completed, now the plant is in its start-up phase. The project is partially funded by a grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC).

Biogas Plant of the Month April - Glenfarg


Built in
- 2011
Power - 800 kWel
Substrates - Food waste (16,000 tpa)

  • Name: Biogas plant Glenfarg (Scotland)
  • Owner: TEG
  • Built in: 2011
  • Power: 800 kWel
  • Substrates: Food waste (16,000 tpa)
  • Technical info: Reception tank (196 m3), 2 fermenters (1,508 m3), 1 digestate storage tank (2,851 m3)
  • UTS-Scope of delivery: Hydraulic and electrical submersible mixers with patented UTS Service boxes, UTS pump technology, UTS separator, pasteurization units
  • Features: Glenfarg is an 800 kW plant designed to run on food waste only. It is the first UTS plant in the UK, built jointly with TEG Environmental Ltd at the Glenfarg site in Perth, Scotland.  The Anaerobic Digestion treatment technology is co-located with the TEG In-Vessel Composting technology already in place at the site. The food waste treated at the site is from a variety of sources including, Local Authority collected food waste and commercial food waste. The existing Waste Reception Building is utilised for the food waste deliveries, which also houses a depackaging machine to remove any contamination/plastics. The UTS technology provided on site consists of a reception tank, two fermenters and a digestate storage tank. The pasteurisation of the digestate occurs prior to the UTS filter screw press separator. The separator ensures that any small quantities of contamination which has passed through the process are removed from the liquid fraction of the digestate before entering the digestate storage tank, with PAS110 accreditation to be achieved for the liquid fraction of the digestate. The heat produced from the process will all be utilised, some of the heat will be used for the Anaerobic Digestion plant on site and the rest of the heat will be used at the nearby Binn Eco Park. The electricity generated from the process will be used to power the In-Vessel Composting plant on site with any surplus electricity exported to the National Grid.

This concept leads to a very high plant utilization of 95 %. The heat of the biogas plant is used for the farm´s own pig breeding buildings as well as the Frank´s home. In addition, Mr Frank added a dryer for crops and wood to use the remaining heat of his biogas plant.

Biogas Plant of the Month July - Kapuvár


Built in
- 2009
Power - 526 kW
Substrates - Cow manure, cow slurry, milk whey and some corn silage

  • Name: Kapuvár, Miklósmajor
  • Owner: Kisalföldi Mezögazdasági Zrt., Nagyszentjános
  • Built in: 2009
  • Power: 526 kW
  • Substrates: Cow manure, cow slurry, milk whey and some corn silage
  • Technical info - Fermenter (1730 m³), secondary fermenter (5300 m³), hydraulic submersible mixers with Service-Boxes and UTS pump technology, plus 2x 5300 m³ opened digestate tanks with hydraulic submersible mixers that could work later as biological fermenters
  • Features - The biogas plant Kapuvár, Miklósmajor is the first biogas plant in Hungary built with UTS technology. The biogas plant is fed with cow manure, cow slurry and whey. There is only a small amount of corn silage fed (average is 0-3 tons / day). The biogas plant is at the customer´s farm, so he was really interested in using as much manure and slurry as possible. The UTS substrate feeding, pumping and mixing technology gives him the possibility to do so. After one year of operation the CHP efficiency was close to 95 %. UTS also already finished the construction works of the second biogas plant for this customer.
