What is Biogas?
Biogas is a type of biofuel that is produced by the fermentation of organic raw materials. When organic matter is processed in an anaerobic environment (absence of oxygen) primarily methane is released. Because this process happens in an anaerobic environment, it is also known as anaerobic digestion.
On the industrial scale, it is a controlled conversion process of solid biomass to biogas. Agricultural residuals, animal manure, food scraps, sewage, sludge and energy crops are all examples of organic matter that can be processed to biogas.
Biogas is the most versatile among the renewable energies, it can be used diversely for the production of:
Bio- plastics and other chemical products
Moreover, biogas has countless benefits, such as:
Runs 24 Hours
Broad Variety of Raw Materials
Most Versatile among Renewable Energies
Closed Cycle Process
Success in Germany
Processes & Technologies
JBG Power is integrated into a global network of leading technology providers, engineering companies and biogas experts. Our technical concepts are characterized by advanced, proven technologies, closed material and energy cycles and highly efficient biogas and electricity production processes. Special pre-treatment processes of the raw materials guarantee optimum biogas yields. Highly efficient combined heat and power plants produce electricity and heat with a total energy efficiency of more than 80%, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The output of our fermentation residuals treatment plants are fertilizers, heat and process water. The fertilizers, Ammonium-Sulfate and Calcium-Carbonate, substitute mineral fertilizers made from fossil gas or oil. The process water is recycled to the fermentation process. Modern biological air cleaning technologies avoid odour immissions. Last but not least, most advanced detection, safety and alarm systems, a professional operational system and a 24/7 staffed control center ensure health protection and avoid equipment damages.
