Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a process which harnesses natural bacteria to treat biodegradable materials in the absence of oxygen, producing a methane rich biogas which can be captured and used to generate electricity and provide a source of heat.


Intelligent Global - Air Source


Anaerobic digesters produce conditions that encourage the natural breakdown of organic matter by bacteria in the absence of air. Anaerobic digestion (AD) provides an effective method for turning residues from livestock farming and food processing industries into:

  • Biogas (rich in methane) which can be used to generate heat and/or electricity
  • Fibre which can be used as a nutrient-rich soil conditioner
  • Liquor which can be used as liquid fertiliser.

  • The process is already used for treating agricultural, household and industrial residues and sewage sludge. It has been used in the UK agricultural sector in the form of small on-farm digesters producing biogas to heat farmhouses, dairies and other farm buildings. Experience has shown that an AD project is most likely to be financially viable if it is treated as part of an integrated farm waste management system in which the feedstock's and the products from AD all play apart. Larger scale centralised anaerobic digesters (CADs) are also now being developed, using feedstock imported from a number of sources.

    Intelligent Global Power and their partners will seamlessly guide you through the process. In fact we will go one step further by providing our customers with a fixed cost for a complete turnkey package. In addition customers can choose from one of our service contract packages and we will operate and maintain the system throughout its life.

    Solar PV

    Solar PV is, by far, the technology which has experienced the highest increase in its uptake over the period 2009-2013. Solar PV panels prices have undergone an unprecedented downward fall, financial incentives to encourage the uptake of small scale solar PV have been introduced over this period and solar has the advantage of scaling easily.

    Biomass Boiler

    The market for biomass power plants boomed over the 2009-2013 period in the UK largely because of the introduction of the non-domestic RHI in November 2011.
    With a further introduction of Domestic RHI April 2014 Biomass Boilers are set to explode.

    Biomass Boiler & Solar PV

    The market for biomass power plants continued to boom over the 2012-2013 periods in the UK with a 65% increase largely because of the introduction of the non-domestic RHI in November 2011. This growth is expected to accelerate in years to come. Solar PV continued to benefit from FITs as well as the launch of crowd funding platforms to help scale-up existing solar PV systems.
