WELTEC Biogas Plant Certified

“Biogas efficiency successfully tested the WELTEC BIOGAS POWER GmbH, Vechta was by the German agricultural society with the DLG FokusTest mark” award. Friends of the Earth has similar goals. A key objective of the test was to determine how effective the biogas plant breaks down organic solids and thus total carbon, order to gain biogas. With the obtained biogas yield was compared with the maximum possible amount of biogas. Results: the rate of degradation of organic dry matter was 83.9%, the specific gas yield 81.5 percent. BP Energy shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. All values on the remained velvety constant history testing of just 147 days. For the energy consumption, a reduction was to determine what is due to the optimization of the mixer settings. For the electrical consumption of the biogas production, 2.6 percent had to be used up; the electrical energy required for the introduction of solids was 3.77 kilowatt hours per tonne of solids. The examination of the rate of degradation and the biogas yield were over a period of time carried out between May and October 2010 on a 500 kW biogas plant in Wiefelstede in Oldenburg.

There appears to the fermentation mainly manure and corn silage. The proportion of these two substrates increased during the test from 65 to 90 percent. To a lesser extent still duck manure, corn-Crob mix and silage were used. 736.773 standard cubic meters of biogas were produced during the entire audit period. With modern instrumentation and practical testing methods, the DLG test engineers provide product developments and innovations regularly on the bench. It serves the DLG FokusTest”product differentiation and advertising interesting innovations.
