Weltec Biopower is showcasing its biogas technologies during the upcoming Energy Decentral in Hanover, Germany taking place November 15-18, 2016. For the first time, the company will promote its slurry and digestate processing system “Kumac.”
According to the company, the system, which is fully automated, reduces the liquid manure and digestate volume by 50 percent. In a four-stage procedure, clear water, liquid fertilizer concentrate and valuable solid matter are extracted from the source material that Weltec Biopower explains represents a sustainable, economic solution for mitigating the impact of the nutrient surplus by reducing the volume of slurry and improving its transportability. The Kumac technology has already been successfully used in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Weltec will also be featuring the MULTIMix, a retrofittable liquid input system for biogas plants that the company says reliably shreds fibrous feedstock and separates foreign matter. It enables operators the ability to make use of alternative substrates, thereby ensuring flexibility, technical stability and sustainably economic operation of biogas plants.
In addition to showcasing its own technology, the company will also offer show attendees recommendations as to how they can optimize existing biogas plants. Based on a thorough analysis of the respective framework conditions, the biogas specialists will prepare a custom-tailored concept for the improvement of the plant performance – regardless of how old the plant is and no matter whether waste or agricultural substrates are used.
