In theory, the mobile anaerobic biogas plant is a feasible project. We are currently searching for United States vendors that are willing to help/partner with AAAA Hyacinth Harvesting making it a Green Project. This is not a “DIY Project” where we put a number of 55 gallon drums together to create a small amount of gas. Their are hundreds of tons of water hyacinths clogging rivers in The Sacramento – San Joaquin River Delta and within the California River Systems.
Light weight, extremely portable, compact, productive, commercial quality harvester for the lake and river home owner, maintenance contractor, property management companies, and resort/marina’s. Our machines cut, pick up, store cut vegetation on board, transport to discharge area, and discharge without ever getting wet.
A process by which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. The process is used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to produce fuels. Much of the fermentation used industrially to produce food and drink products uses anaerobic digestion.
The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials. Insoluble organic polymers, such as carbohydrates, are broken down to soluble derivatives that become available for other bacteria.
Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. These bacteria convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide. The methanogenic archaea populations play an indispensable role in anaerobic wastewater treatments.
It is used as part of the process to treat biodegradable waste and sewage sludge. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digesters can also be fed with purpose-grown energy crops, such as corn.
Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a source of renewable energy. The process produces a biogas, consisting of methane, carbon dioxide and traces of other ‘contaminant’ gases. This biogas can be used directly as fuel, in combined heat and power gas engines or upgraded to natural gas-quality bio methane. The nutrient-rich digestate also produced can be used as fertilizer.
With the re-use of waste as a resource and new technological approaches which have lowered capital costs, anaerobic digestion has in recent years received increased attention among governments in a number of countries.
