Processing horse manure in biogas plants - a showcase project in Germany
The biogas plant is also coming back into focus, especially when it comes to the energetic utilisation of residual materials. By fermenting stackable dung from animal husbandry and other organic waste materials, biogas is obtained, which is converted into electricity and heat during the combustion process in a combined heat and power plant. Horse manure, which is produced in large quantities, especially on larger farms, and cannot be optimally utilised in conventional liquid biogas plants, causes costs for disposal.
With approx. 1.2 million horses throughout Germany, slightly more than 10 times as much horse manure is produced annually. This enormous potential is currently not yet used for energy generation. In addition to energy, an organic fertilizer with good plant availability is produced. This unique problem solver for horse manure is a beacon project for the entire industry with international appeal.
The team of farmers at Adrian Bartels' farm with its innovative solid fermentation plant shows how successful this recycling can be.
In solid fermentation as the core technology, the process liquid percolate is circulated and thus the decomposition process of the stackable biomass in the fermenter boxes to biogas is started and maintained. This percolate cycle ensures that relevant microorganisms, moisture, heat and essential nutrients are evenly distributed in the biomass. In addition, the percolate with its buffer substances stabilises the entire biogas process. Thanks to the robust plant technology and stable anaerobic degradation (without oxygen), impurities have no influence. As a technology leader in the field of solid fermentation, the Swiss company RENERGON stands for highest plant safety, optimal process flows and high gas yields.

China's largest Dry Anaerobic Digestion Facility in Operation
Over the last months, Renergon has been busy with the completion and commissioning of probably China's largest dry anaerobic digestion facility on Chongming Island, near Shanghai. The plant on Chongming Island treats 65,000 t/a of organic material. About 19,000 t/a wheat straw together with 46,000 t/a liquid pig manure are being processed. The plant has a zero water concept, which means that all liquid animal manure is consumed by the process,
Biogas from Waste for Energy Security
The current crisis clearly shows that there can be no "business as usual" in the energy sector. Not only because of climate protection but also because of rising raw material prices and dependence on fossil imports, rapid conversion of our energy sources is required. The order of the day: domestic production of renewable energy, and in relation to the gas grid as an ideal, cost-effective storage facility, the production of

Laparoscopic surgery uses a special instrument called the laparoscope. The laparoscope is a long, slender device that is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision. It has a camera attached to it that allows the obstetrician–gynecologist (ob-gyn) to view the abdominal and pelvic organs on an electronic screen. If a problem needs to be fixed, other instruments can be used. These instruments usually are inserted through additional small incisions

How safe is Germany?
A few weeks ago, alarmist coverage of a fight which took place during a festival in the small town of Mügeln (Saxony) was featured in newspapers throughout Germany. The incident consisted of a violent confrontation between Indians and Germans, resulting in speculation that the fight was racially motivated.
