Bio Energy means amongst other things, the production of electricity extracted from the fermentation of plants, usually maize or animal manure, as well as waste from the food industry and other organic materials
Through the fermentation of these products, methane is produced that drives a CHP – Combined Heat and Power plant that subsequently produces electricity.
These Bio Gas Installations are increasing strongly in number, partly because they are seen as a “clean producer” of energy (electricity). After fermentation a product called digistate remains, this is used as a soil conditioner and a (bio) fertilizer for plants, among other things.
Shieer has developed various products for the Bio Digester such as: process optimization, sulphur reduction and the prevention of unwanted odours.
