Biogas is gas produced from organic materials like plant waste, animal excrement etc.
I intend to build a biogas plant on my farm - can I use biogas to run my diesel engines?
In its usual form you cannot use low pressure biogas to power diesel engines.
There are experiments going on to do this, but to date the results have not been good.
In America and Europe biogas is getting converted to RNG (Renewable Natural Gas) on a very large scale.
RNG and LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) can both be used to run diesel engines.
Some garages in Sweden and Germany only sell RNG while others only sell LNG.
In short, you cannot use biogas to run your diesel engines, but you can use RNG if you can produce it from your biogas.
If you run on gas here, probably it'll be LNG from Sasol,
but there's no reason it can't also be RNG from your farms.
World Shipping Fair in Hamburg - Sept. 09 - 12, 2014
The biennial Ship Building, Machinery and Marine Technology International Trade Fair will be held in Hamburg, Germany.
We hope to bring you more news about it but especially of the diesel engines
to be exhibited at the fair, and of the engines to be used in the boats on display.
