Working with a partner, we have developed a technology where we can use briquettes from straw in a biogas plant. As a result of the briquetting process, a small steam explosion is created and the cell structure is opened making access to bacteria and thus being able to increase biogas production.
We have installed a testing facility at the biogas plant at the University of Aarhus in Foulum, Denmark. The briquetting press is a BP5500 and the line is complete with straw handling plant producing approx.. 800 kg per hour of straw briquettes with a diameter of 75 mm. The testing plant has enabled us to get documentation for the concept, which is now patented.
