Clarke Energy are delighted to be sponsoring and taking part in the World Biogas Summit 2021, taking place virtually from 6th to 8th July. The summit will discuss how to efficiently capture the 105 billion tonnes of organic wastes produced annually around the world, recover the valuable gases and nutrients they contain and recycle them into clean energy and natural fertilisers.
Clarke Energy is a distributor of INNIO Jenbacher gas engines which are designed for robust operation on difficult gases such as biogas, landfill gas or sewage gas. Clarke Energy is also a distributor for TPI’s biogas upgrading plants. The biogas cleaning technology at the plant consists in treating the biogas in order to obtain biomethane, similar to natural gas.
Alex Marshall – Clarke Energy Group Business Development and Marketing Director will be joining the Energy Transitions panel at 4pm on 8th July to discuss flexible generation and turning the liability of landfill gas into an asset.
Biomethane; today’s transition fuel, tomorrow’s green gold – 8th July – 4PM
Spearheading The Transition To Net Zero
It’s All About Methane – Organic Wastes, Recovery And Recycling
Humans directly or indirectly generate over 105 billion tonnes of organic wastes globally each year, all of which release harmful methane and other greenhouse gas emissions directly into the atmosphere as they decompose.
These organic wastes include food waste, sewage and garden wastes, food and drink processing wastes, and farm and agricultural wastes. Today only 2% of these are treated and recycled.
Over the first decade in the atmosphere one tonne of methane is the equivalent of 86 tonnes of CO2. If we do not cut methane emissions from organic wastes immediately, then climate catastrophe is unavoidable.
By managing all organic waste as important bioresources through anaerobic digestion and the generation of biogas we can cut global GHG emissions by 10% by 2030, starting now. Untreated organic wastes are a problem. Anaerobic digestion not only solves this problem, but also delivers the greatest value from these bioresources.
