Biogas is the production of methane through the digestion of mostly waste materials such as agricultural waste, food scraps or manure. Biogas is a widely used form of alternative energy in Europe and growing elsewhere. The technology was developed cooperatively with Three-Es, HDI’s Milan, Italy based European partner. Together they have adapted the longstanding SPR technology specifically for biogas and now have many European commercial installations.
The BioSPR equipment uses the physical phenomenon of cavitation, normally known as destructive force, and controls it rendering it non-damaging to equipment. This BioSPR uses the pressure fluctuations and extraction ability of cavitation to makes the fats, sugars, proteins and starches more accessible to the bacteria which increases methane gas yield. The BioSPR has a small footprint and easy to install device that can increase gas production by 20% or more while simultaneously reducing viscosity.
