Development of an innovative tool for monitoring and improving the efficiency of biogas plants based on a process model
Project Duration: 01.12.2017 – 31.01.2020
The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of a development plan for promoting individual business technology. During the duration of the project a model will be developed for industrial-scale biogas plants, which makes the processes that take place in the fermenters “visible” for the operators.
Based on the historical and current plant data it will then be possible to forecast daily process activity – in most cases without additional measurement instruments. This allows for better planning and flexibility in plant operation, which in turn improves the efficiency of the biogas generation process and reduces losses and periods with low performance.
