The GTI cover at Melbourne Water collects biogas worth over $3,500,000 AUD per year, and contributes to generating over 40% of the site’s electricity requirements for treatment processes. It also helps minimize odors and greenhouse gas emissions.Read More
The gas collection cover that GTI provided for Rothenbühler Cheesemakers has helped the cheesemaker make better use of biogas from anaerobic digestion. The cover also controls odor and temperature, and minimizes harmful emissions.Read More
Slave Lake Pulp decided to explore biomethane for power generation for its environmental and its cost-saving benefits. GTI designed and installed a cover to help the mill harness the power of biogas from its new anaerobic digestion system. It has helped reduce electrical costs by 43 percent, as well as minimize greenhouse gas emissions.Read More
Biogas Energy Recovery
The anaerobic treatment process produces biogas, a gaseous fuel consisting mostly of methane that can be converted into green, renewable energy. This valuable resource can be used to generate process heat or electricity, helping to offset energy costs. In addition to the attractive cost savings, preventing methane from escaping into the atmosphere with a tank or lagoon cover helps the environment by reducing greenhouse gases.
If biogas at your plant is currently disappearing into thin air, it’s time to consider a GTI cover solution to make better use of wasted biogas. Perfect for waste-to-energy initiatives, GTI covers are designed to be gastight for safe biogas handling. They are made with strong, long-lasting materials to resist tears, punctures, chemicals, and UV rays.
Gas collection covers are typically used for lagoon and large tanks, while structurally supported covers or modular floating covers are used on smaller tanks and basins. GTI also offers biogas control systems to protect the cover while reliably supplying methane gas at the appropriate pressures.
