Anaerobic Digestion Making Biogas Making Energy

The new Earthscan Expert Series book Anaerobic Digestion – Making Biogas – Making Energy by Tim Pullen is now out. It is the 12th book in the series.

The book is an easy-read illustrated introduction to all aspects of running an anaerobic digestion plant and producing biogas, either to use directly as a gas or generate electricity for sale to the utility grid.

The complete Earthscan Expert Series can be viewed at

"A biogas production system must be specially designed and requires regular attention by someone familiar with the needs and operation of the digester. Associated manure handling equipment and gas utilization components are also required. The digester does not remove significant nutrients and requires an environmentally responsible manure storage and handling system.
A well designed and operated digester will require modest daily attention and maintenance. The care and feeding of a digester is not unlike feeding a cow or a pig; it responds best to consistent feeding and the appropriate environmental (temperature and anaerobic- oxygen free) conditions. The earlier a problem in operation is identified the easier it is to fix and still maintain productivity." (PSU, 2014)
