The 1MW Guascor Energy engine will be the next part of the off-grid energy solution at a major customer site in the food manufacturing sector.
Biogas is a renewable energy source that is produced from the decomposition of organic matter, such as animal and plant waste, through a process called anaerobic digestion. During this process, microorganisms break down the organic matter in the absence of oxygen, producing a mixture of gases that includes methane, carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases.
The methane content of biogas is what makes it valuable as a fuel, as it can be used to generate electricity and heat. Biogas can also be cleaned and purified to produce biomethane, which has a similar composition to natural gas and can be used for the same purposes.
Biogas has several benefits over fossil fuels, as it is renewable, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and provides an alternative way to manage waste.
