The BiNoLiquifeed
The biogas process under anaerobic conditions takes place in two phases which
request different conditions in terms of ph-value and temperature.
1. Short phase in which under alternating aerobic and anaerobic conditions
2. Long phase in which the biomass is further split up into acids, alcohols and
acetic acids.
Common procedure is to combine the two stages in one digester.
The BiNoLiquifeed technology enables a speeding up of the biogas process by
dividing the stages in two separate tanks.

The BiNoLiquifeed
Increased efficiency

Reduced energy consumption from agitation, pumping and feeding


Reduced retention times (without BiNoLiquifeed: 40-100 days; with BiNoLiquifeed: <30 days)
Increased loading rates
Process stability
Fibrous materials such as grass, straw and hay can be easily digested
The technology can handle frequent changes in types and qualities of substrates
Reduced risk of floating layers

The benefits of BiNoLiqifeed

Increased biogas production when using the same digester volume

The same volume of biogas with a reduced digester volume

The BiNoPerformanceGuarantee

Guarantees a minimum level of energy production.

The BiNoPerformanceGuarantee forms part of a


service and maintenance agreement with Biogas Nord. Other
conditions are available upon request.

The BiNoPerformanceGuarantee ensures a constant stream of income


for investors and financers.

The BiNoPerformanceGuarantee provides security and reliability.
