Continuous, Fixed position Biogas Methane Analysis, Monitoring & Measurement Geotech

The GA3000 static gas analyser from Geotech http://www.geotech.co.uk uses robust, field-proven technology giving, tight-budget economy to automated monitoring and measurement of methane-rich gas with 4-20mA local data outputs. Easily operator installed and calibrated, the compact, self-contained GA3000 analyzer has gas conditioning as standard. It analyses CH4, CO2, O2 and optionally, H2S at 0-5000ppm. Screen-displayed readings have user-selectable alarm settings. The GA3000 monitors landfill gas or AD biogas from waste food and/or wastewater sludge. More: http://www.geotech.co.uk/ga3000.php The Geotech GA3000 static gas analyser for anaerobic digestion biogas, and landfill fixed-position gas analysis, monitoring and measurement suits tight-budget demand with top-quality design, components and engineering. It uses Geotech's robust, field-proven technology to bring low-cost to automated fixed-position monitoring of methane-rich biogas. Easily operator installed, user field-calibrated and zeroed, the compact, self-contained, single-cabinet GA3000 has gas conditioning as standard. It continuously analyses methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2) and optionally, hydrogen sulphide (H2S) at 0-5000ppm. They are measured, at user-set timings, and supply data via three or four, 4-20mA local outputs. Users also set alarm levels and can see screen-displayed readings on a large, clear, backlit display. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is increasingly being used in waste processing and biogas production to recycle food and farm waste, avoid landfill and generate biogas and energy from waste. These AD installations, large and small, can benefit from continuous gas analysis to optimise AD, maximise output and ensure safety and compliance with environmental guidelines and legislation. Many landfill operators also seek to optimise landfill gas output and electricity generation. For each sector, reliable, proven, economic gas analysis and monitoring technology can be essential. This robust, reliable and cost-effective system provides continuous and accurate sampling of methane, carbon dioxide and oxygen from a single sample point. Hydrogen sulphide sampling is a GA3000 option. User field calibration of the analyser and exchange of the optional hydrogen sulphide (H2S) sensor reduce operational costs. With no training required for operators and with the GA3000 engineered for low ownership cost, this ISO 17025 calibration-accredited unit is designed for quick and easy self-installation in any country, worldwide. User relocation of the GA3000 is just as easy. With gas conditioning included as standard, to ensure top quality gas analysis, the user-replaceable H2S sensor and analyser 'Hot Swap' capability offers zero downtime. The GA3000 adds to Geotech's static gas analysis range which includes the current Automated Extraction Monitoring System (AEMS) Geotech AEMS that has more extensive application options with, for example, multiple sampling points, data inputs and 4-20mA local data outputs, Profibus and Modbus comms options, Ethernet and Internet connectivity, data logging and transfer.

ADBA on recycing drivers for AD

ADBA's chief executive Charlotte Morton outlines why higher recycling targets and a greater emphasis on source-segregated waste collections is important for maximising the biogas output of anaerobic digestion.

Toyota's huge solar array revealed

Toyota and British Gas threw the switch to launch an industry-leading initiative in sustainable energy generation at Toyota's Burnaston car plant this week. A vast solar power system -- the largest installed by any UK vehicle manufacturer -- has officially come on stream at the Derbyshire site, ready to help meet the factory's electricity demand and reduce its carbon footprint.

Energy Aid

Energy Aid launched to boost developing world power access A new charity has been set up with the aim of getting the estimated 1bn people who live without electricity on the grid. Related articles CCS has 'no friends' but must get Britain's backing Dirty biomass could lead to 'carbon fraud' claim green campaigners Drax turbine upgrade will deliver 40% efficiency gain CCS is 'unattractive but vital' to meeting carbon targets Biomass cleaner than coal and could benefit forests Energy Aid, which will be globally launched next week, was showcased last night (December 1) at the London offices of backers IBM. The idea behind the charity is to help the people the UN thinks have no power and the 2.7bn it estimates have to cook with biomass, wood, dung, coal and other solid fuels every year. The charity aims to emulate the success of Water Aid, but will operate through partner organisations on the ground rather than going in themselves. Energy Aid chief executive, Jonathon Steel, told edie energy: "We don't have plans to build infrastructure ourselves. "Water Aid has done a lot of good work on the ground, but it's taken them two decades in some cases to get there. "Our objective is to identify partners, and we're not going to be religious about who we partner with, and find the best solutions for the people." Mr Steel also rejected the idea increasing access to energy in the third world could be detrimental to efforts to cut global emissions, saying adding all the people without power to the gird would increase world-wide emissions by just 0.7%. He added: "Energy can be a route out of poverty for the people who have no access to electricity. "As a result the charity will identify and address issues preventing large portions of the population from using electricity safely such as helping the people who cook using solid fuels to avoid indoor smoke from cooking stoves. "Deaths from this surpasses the death toll caused by Malaria, indoor smoke kills 1.4 million people each year, most of which are women and children." IBM UK and Ireland chief executive and chair of Energy Aid's trustees, Stephen Leonard, said: "Just over a year ago at the IBM Sustainability Summit at Start held in London, one particular idea emerged that has since caught many people's imagination - the idea of Energy Aid. "Providing universal energy access is one of the most important challenges of our time but no one organisation can do this alone and collaborative approaches are now needed." Practical Action chief executive and founding Trustee, Simon Trace, "The creation of Energy Aid was inspired by the work of Practical Action, we have been working for over 40 years with communities providing them with the tools and opportunity they need to lift themselves out of poverty. "Practical Action is an expert in energy solutions for the developing world and we are proud to be involved in this exciting initiative."

Recorded - ESOS: How to turn compliance into a business opportunity

ESOS timescales are tight, and companies that act faster will be able to turn their audit recommendations into cost savings, covering the cost of compliance within year. Watch Inenco’s ESOS experts and hear first-hand from the energy manager of a major energy user about delivering ESOS in a large organization. 10,000 of the UK’s largest businesses have to comply with the new Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and conduct a mandatory energy audit across buildings, transport and industrial operations by December 2015. Anthony Mayall, Managing Director of NIFES Consulting (part of the Inenco Group) explained how businesses should approach ESOS as a chance to go beyond their property portfolio and unlock savings across their operations. Dave Derbyshire, Environmental Manager, Matalan Retail, discussed how Matalan is implementing ESOS and his experience delivering a large-scale Energy Reduction Programme. Businesses can’t afford to ignore ESOS - compliance is not optional, but more importantly, any delay in action could mean potential savings go unrealised, more than covering the cost of compliance. Like any energy saving scheme, savings are solely dependent on businesses taking action. ESOS could identify up to £900m of savings by 2016 - if approached in the right way, this could be a major opportunity for businesses to reduce consumption and cost. Participants will also had the opportunity to put questions to the experts throughout the webinar, you can submit your question on the event via email, after registration.
