Biogas

Our biogas consulting services cover full project cycle from preliminary design, permit applications and EIAs to detailed design, tendering, construction management, commissioning and performance testing.

Sustainable Energy has undertaken plant sizing and design of heat offtake and electricity connection for a number of biogas CHP plants and provided technical support for the design of metering arrangements and management of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) accreditation process.

Our work covers investigation of composition and potential volumes of biogas, consideration of feedstock security and evaluation of potential plant energy production levels, energy value and digestate output. We have experience of biogas cleaning technologies and the removal of CO2 for biomethane production, to meet suitability for injection into the gas network or use as a vehicle fuel.

Our biogas and biomethane services include:

  • Calculation of nutrient loading and prediction of biogas yield
  • Determination of space required for the plant
  • Identification of utility constraints or service supplies needed
  • Planning, environmental and permitting support
  • Heat offtake considerations
  • Client’s Engineer role for design and construction support
  • Commissioning
