The leading book on the market just got better: With its unique approach covering all aspects of setting up and running a biogas plant, this new edition has been expanded to include recent advances in biomass processing. The full range of biogas substrates and processing modes is explained, from agricultural and industrial waste to marine algae and sediment. On–site use of biogas for conversion into electricity, fuel and heat is also discussed, as are safety and regulatory issues. many real–life examples of biogas plants already in operation illustrate the contents, as do numerous schemes, diagrams and summary tables.

For this new edition, biogas analytics and  quality control required for feeding biogas into natural gas networks are included, as is a completely new chapter on the  microbiology of biogas–producing bacterial communities.

From reviews of the previous edition:

"This volume can provide a valuable introduction for biogas plant design and operation." – CHOICE, January 2009

"Written as a practical introduction to biogas plant design and operation, this book fills a huge gap by presenting a systematic guide to this emerging technology...Strongly recommended." – Environmental Engineering and Management Journal, July/August 2008

"Subsequent chapters cover the process engineering aspects and the different technology types in great detail." – EnAgri, April 2008
