The graph above illustrates the enhanced methane production rates exhibited by a pilot-plant Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant when compared to the initial expectations based on laboratory testing of the feed material. The preliminary laboratory biomethane potential (BMP) testing produced an expected methane rate of 0.45 m3 methane/kg VS, however the full-scale plant averages 0.60 m3 methane/kg VS, and may indicate that the multistage system is providing additional efficiencies not expected from standard single-tank operation.

This case study displays to results of an AD trial on both whey and permeate at a semi-commercial level in an Australian setting.

The system in this case study was installed in November 2018 as a 12-month research and development project to establish viability of an anaerobic digestion plant designed to convert dairy effluent to energy and minimise odour.
