Re: Need help with pig poop power

If you have not found a solution yet, let me know how to reach you.

 

We provide EPC for biogas projects and had designed systems with pig heads as high as 200,000 average daily population...

Re: Need help with pig poop power

If you are using a rich-burn or lean-burn natural gas engine run on ag-gas/digester-gas, you still need to be aware of air quality regulations. Although no particulate is produced by using ag-gas, emissions of NOx, HC and CO are still present and may be regulated. Any rich-burn engine (generally under 500 kW) manufactured after July 2008 comes under EPA New Source Performance Standards and most likely will need a three-way converter to reduce emissions.

Need help with pig poop power

Friend of mine runs a pig operation, and wants to look at harvesting methane from the pig manure. Where can I get more information on the equipment needed, and how to do this? And how many hogs are needed to make this worthwhile? Anyone have a pig-to-kw conversion calculator? Smiley Very Happy
