Abstract

The organic waste of the agriculture and food industry can be a potential resource for bioenergy and the potential of biomasses from different origins in the Russian Federation is significant. Biomass annual growth is comparable with traditional organic energy consumption, so the introduction of modern biotechnology is important.

The performed study of the effect of various factors on the biological treatment processes for a certain type of biomass (cattle manure) shows that it is possible to reduce processing time and to increase the biomass conversion degree at moderate energy consumption.

A biogas plant (BGP-100) was developed with a high level of thermal protection and heat recovery to make the biological treatment process of organic waste effective, even in areas with severe climate conditions.

A further development of biogas technology effectiveness may be the use of more active bacterial cultures and cogeneration plants combined with some types of thermal energy produced to recover technology needs.
