Aerated windrow composting is ideal for large volumes of waste, typically generated by entire communities or cities and collected by the local governments or high volume food-processing businesses. This process yields a significant amount of compost that is available at a low cost, too.
The Windrow Method
What if you were told that you could get free fuel to run your car and travel as long as you want? Sounds too good to be true? Not with biogas!
If you can harness or cultivate biogas, you can create fuel for automobile and industrial usage. Ready to know how it all works? Read on!
Mailhem is a waste management company that specializes in biogas plants and offers a renewable energy source to many companies across the country. Biogas is basically a gas that’s produced by decomposing organic matter in the absence of oxygen. This occurs due to the…
Biogas technology generates a combustible gas from anaerobic biomass digestion and this is one of the most growing technologies for cleaner and greener futures. In fact, millions of biogas plants are operational across the world. Although using the gas for combustion in home stoves or for gas lamps is common, producing electricity from biogas is relatively new, especially in developing parts of the world. In some industrialized countries like Germany, power generation is the main focus of biogas plants and converting biogas to electricity is a standard technology.
Mailhem’s Efforts towards Power Generation
Portable biogas plants are considered to be the safest option to convert biodegradable waste into biogas and manure. These plants are small units specifically designed for household and institutional purposes to generate energy from waste materials. As a result, it helps create a hygienic environment and clean and healthy surroundings for individuals and the public in general.
Why Consider a Portable Biogas Plant?
Indian cities are now turning over a new leaf with solid waste management. As urban India continues to grow in its infrastructure and population, the waste also increases exponentially. Apart from being a public health issue, the waste also causes serious law issues as people turn to violent methods to protest waste from being dumped in their backyards. In addition, cities are facing major challenges to finding the space to dispose of waste. The urban population is growing at 3–3.5% annually, and the waste is expected to increase by 5% every year.
On the positive side, the government is now…
At Mailhem, we consider it our responsibility to promote waste to energy plants and reduce the amount of waste in India. We constantly promote and support sustainable use of resources. Our ability to deliver anaerobic digestion solutions helps in reducing the waste and producing fuel.
What is Anaerobic Digestion?
We all need to drastically improve our recycling habits — at home, workplaces, industrial setups and more. Reducing the level of waste we produce is crucial to protect our environment in the long term and the key to do this is recycling. While waste management solutions do offer opportunities to convert waste to energy, it isn’t enough. Also, this process is not as easily accessible or convenient as recycling. When you recycle, you are reducing the number of resources you use to make new products and it also vastly reduces the waste in landfills.
We bring you the top ways…
Today, the entire world is promoting renewable energy sources to ease the load on our finite sources. The increasing climate change concern is also leading top environmentalists to focus on other sources like biogas. It is produced when organic material degrades by microorganisms using anaerobic digestion. Biogas has around 50 to 70% methane and 30 to 50% carbon dioxide. It is used for heat, electricity production or even traffic fuel after the purification of biomethane.
India is the 3rd largest petroleum importer of the world and is estimated to cross China in the near future to become the 2nd largest…
The debate on whether to use biogas or natural gas continues for decades together. We bring you the key features of biogas and why it is so environmentally friendly, especially in the current times. Biogas is also heralded by many as an integral element to creating a circular economy and embracing this energy source for all its benefits.
All About Natural Gas
Natural gas consists entirely of methane and the gas is created underground as biomass decomposes. It is considered one of the cleanest fossil fuels and it is also refined into LNG and CNG for multiple uses. It is an…
