Large Scale Biogas Design
Information and planning documents for large scale biogas design. Other plans and information for small scale and community sized installations are available from our Design page.
The construction and large scale biogas design is becoming increasingly important in light of climate change and move towards emission reductions. In a study by BCC Research released in February 2014, it estimated the world market for biogas digesters and landfill gas equipment reached nearly $4.5 billion in 2013. The sector will undoubtedly contiune to expand for many years to come.
In terms of small scale domestic biogas, China and India have an amazing 42.8 million and 4.5 million units installed respectively, driven by coordinated programs to utilise biomass waste for energy production.
