Material Flow Analysis of Biogas Systems "An Example of Nitrogen and Sulphur"

C. Dornack
Different parameters are used to assess the efficiency of biogas plants. The most common parameters used in practice are VS destruction and COD reduction. Both parameters indicate the mass conversion of organic matter into biogas. During anaerobic operation more parameters need to be balanced e.g. nitrogen and sulphur. The mass flow balance can be used to assess the quality of the operation process based on sampling and analysis. In principle a quantification of mass transfer...
