From organic waste to sulphur free biogas.

Converting waste into energy and more specific agro waste like manures and high-quality energy crops is an established renewable energy option through-out the world.

Typically, biogas plants are characterized by large capital investment due to long retention times that require large plants with high operating costs.  This means that as an investor large portion of investment is skunked into fixed assets leading to high risk.  Further up to 50% of the substrate is never converted by tradition AD (anaerobic digestion) process, these materials are cellulose and hemicellulose.

         

Looking to nature it can be noted that all ruminant animal (cows etc) consumes large quantities of material high in celluloses and convert this into protein, water and bio-methane gas.  This conversion happens in very short period hours rather than weeks.  

By back-engineering this process the various step can be isolated allowing bio-methane production and proteins as by product under very controlled conditions.

Rapid Cellulose Biorefinery or iRCB for short is a technology specifically develop to achieve just that.

Product – RaCBio

Key factor of RaCBio

  • Converts all cellulose and hemi-cellulose typically all material that can be eaten by a ruminant animal, food waste related material (grass, maze, corn, organic municipal waste garden and landscape waste and fesses). no need for manures of high-quality feedstock
  • Produce sulphur free Bio-methane 
  • Very short retention time due to selection and rapped conversion process
  • Produce protein rich slurry that can be used as an animal feed 
  • Process water is a nutrient rich 100% organic liquid fertilizer containing phosphor, potassium, calcium and magnesium
  • Technology is containerised thus simplifying transportation and operations
  • Completely off-grid self-sufficient plant
  • Plant is movable from feedstock to feedstock increasing production cycle
  • Plant is modular and variable different size of generators can be connected in hybrid configuration producing biogas and electricity
  • No permanent structure or fixed asset – total flexibility and security of ownership

The European Union Is Helping These Islands To Go Renewable

With an aim to help make islands more self-sufficient, prosperous and sustainable, the European Union has recently launched its Clean Energy for EU Islands project. Twenty-six islands across 10 European nations have been selected due to their potential to successfully establish a high-quality energy

What is the different between ruminats and non-ruminants

Ruminants are animals which chew the cud. Cud is un chewed grass taken into the rumen which is returned to the mouth for chewing (regurgitation). Examples include Goats, Sheep, Cattle, Antelopes and Buffalos. They have a complicated stomach consisting of four chambers. Other animals like termites eat wood, dry leaves etc which also contain cellulose. …
