Organic Power Generation and Utilization Using Anaerobic Digestion Process

Rizwan Tariq, Rao M. Asif, Ateeq Ur Rehman, Muhammad Abu Bakar Siddiqui, Adeel Asad, Shahzad Ashraf


Organic power is produced by using both solids and liquid organic materials like wastage of industries, agriculture fields, and other synthetic materials. In recent days, many developed countries have given incentives for the production of bio-fuel and injected into the natural gas grid. The existing anaerobic digestion plants are upgraded to produce organic power efficiently. The objective of this paper is to introduce an innovative energy system for consuming organic materials. The proposed system is an anaerobic digestion system that consists of a digestion process tank, water tank, temperature controller for the digestion process, and other accessories to complete that process. An anaerobic digestion plant is developed as a function of the percentage of the organic materials sent to the upgrading system and the amount of organic power produced. The end products of the proposed system are biogas, biomethane, carbon dioxide, and clean fertilizer. The optimized parameters are taken as ammonia CODp, sugar TAN, proteins TOC, and organic inserts NORg.  Furthermore, the comparison of organic fuels is discussed with other energy fuels.
