Real-time Analysis for Biogas production - BMP and FOS/TAC

Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is the process of microbial breakdown of biomass to produce a viable source of methane-rich biogas. The resulting methane gas can then be used as fuel in transport, heating, or the generation of electricity. The biomass source commonly used in the UK  is wastewater sludge, due to its high availability. In this industry, regulations and ongoing monitoring play an import...

FOS/TAC Titration

The FOS/TAC ratio is a commonly used indicator for assessing the fermentation process within biogas reactors, where FOS is a measure of the volatile organic acids (measured in mg CH3COOH/l) and is TAC is a measure of the total inorganic carbon i.e. the alkaline buffer capacity of the system (measured in mg CaCO3/l). In simple terms, this ratio looks at acid vs alkaline in the system which helps...
