Sugar cane-waste biogas plant

Concept for an integrated sugar cane-waste biogas plant (March 2020)

North of Sao Paulo there is a sugar cane farm that is combined with fattening of cattle. Atmove developed a feasibility study to evaluate the potential for biogas production from manure and sugar cane. The technological and economical evaluation of the utilization of the various feedstock and sugar cane in anaerobic digestion plants was the goal. The results showed that not only the biogas production for different use cases like energy&heat supply to substitute the existing costs and BioCNG production to substitute the diesel costs are relevant, but also the supply of the farm with fertilizer from own production improves the business radically. Additionally the methane emissions of the manure can be avoided and carbon credits can be generated in a future biogas project.
