Biogas plants as part of the future energy mix

Biogas plants are significant regarding the gobal energy revolution, the sustainable treatment of agricultural wastes or renewable raw materials and the establishment of a secure decentralized energy supply.

AKUT designs and plans installations for biogas production.
Industrial-sized NAWARO plants with more than 300 kWe including the suitable district heating systems.
Industrial biogas plants for anaerobic treatment of agricultural wastes , eg from the tea , sisal and flower production.

Small agricultural plants, for example “AKUT Fixed Dome” with dimensions of 16-124 m³ for small farmers in developing and emerging countries using the gas directly for cooking and lighting.
Agricultural plants, for example ”AKUT UMEME®” biogas plants providing 30 to 100 kWel for medium-sized agricultural producers in developing and emerging countries.

Installations for the anaerobic treatment of wastewater with high COD, e.g. from the dairy industry.

Finlay Biogas Plant

Kericho, Kenya, 2014

The first out of four expansion stages of the anaerobic digester complemented with a combined heat and power system (CHP) was finished in April 2014.  The digester serves Finlays´tea producing industry in Kericho, Kenya to save operational costs, energy and improve it´s eco balance significantly. The well adopted system is optimized for the in-plant exploitation of organic wastes from tea production thus reducing energy dependency.
