Anaerobic Digestion

RDD 99. ADbag - Demetra LtdRDD 77. Low Temperature Anaerobic Digestion (LtAD) Technology - NVP Energy

Demetra Ltd is an innovative company based in Dublin, designing and developing biogas plants for the Irish market (targeting agricultural and animal farmers and small food processor companies). This project aims to design and manufacture a pilot demonstration AD tank made by plastic based fabric. The ADbag aims to provide a simpler, less expensive option to traditional AD systems, allowing for the exploitation of potential biomass feedstock currently wasted in the farming and small food processor sector.

NVP has worked with SEAI in 2014/2015 on the development of a low temperature anaerobic digestion (LtAD) technology where funding was previously used to optimise the design of the AD reactor and piloting its trial in Carbery Mills, Aarabawn Dairies and the Kerry Group.

The proposed project in 2016 will carry out monitoring and testing to validate the LtAD technology to ensure its efficient operation as this innovative technology is the first of its kind.

High volume, low strength industrial effluents represent a great potential for innovation in biogas production. This project aims to develop process technology, design criteria and operational strategies for biogas production from such effluents. The project outputs will allow for wider uptake of this technology for both energy production and environmental protection.
