Biogas to replace natural gas in South Africa

Zorg Biogas supplied design docs and biogas plant equipment to South Africa. Biogas output is expected 575 m3 per hour (equivalent of 1.2 MW electric power). Biogas to replace natural gas in boilers of the factory. Substrates are vegetable pulp and silage. 2 steel tanks 4000 m3 are constructed. Material of the tanks is acid- and shock- resistant elamel steel. Biogas will be produced whole the day but consumed only in 12 hours. So it was the task of making gas storage with the increased volume. The solution were 2 on-roof double membrane gasholders with volume 2400 m3 each.
