Affirmative biogas action with right pumps and mixers

landia.jpeg

As California takes affirmative action to address climate challenges, including the 23 million tons of organic waste that it produces annually, the environmental services industry is also taking positive steps to ensure that the unwanted material is put to the best possible use.

This includes upgrades of the important mixing process at anaerobic digestion facilities to boost biogas yields from material that would have otherwise been destined for landfill; releasing harmful methane, rather than converting it into clean, green renewable energy.

‘First anaerobic digester’

In May 2023, Republic Services, a leader in the environmental services industry, made a significant expansion of its organics recycling operations when it acquired North State Bioenergy, a biogas facility at Oroville; its first anaerobic digester. The site, located some 70 miles north of Sacramento, was once home to a rendering plant, from whom the AD plant received organic matter, but it now mainly uses commercial food waste from across Northern California as feedstock for its principal, 64’ high, 2200m3 (580,000-gallon) digester.

With Republic Services wanting to optimize the biogas operation at Oroville, a new submersible chopper pump has been introduced for the facility’s 20,000-gallon Receiving Pit; from the same company whose equipment still works efficiently and effectively on the main digester.

‘Minimizes safety risks for our operators’

Dave Meyer, Operations Manager at Republic Services, explains:

“We made a calculated investment when we chose the Landia GasMix system for the main digester. It is a highly dependable system, with external accessibility, which simplifies maintenance and avoids costly downtime associated with internal components. Unlike other systems with moving parts inside, Landia's design minimizes safety risks for our operators and ensures a seamless, efficient, and profitable process without the challenges of shutting down a delicate biological operation.”

Ten years on, and the GasMix Chopper Pumps on the main digester are still going strong. When Republic Services decided to replace the pump for the Receiving Pit at Oroville, it chose Landia again for the demanding food-waste application that runs 24/7, 365-days a year. The new Landia Chopper Pump is stainless-steel, 30HP, with an external 5-blade knife system that continuously reduces the particle size of the feedstock. Using the original site drawings that Landia had safely archived, it meant that the new submersible could be integrated with the original pump and mix system, dropping the new Chopper Pump straight into the Receiving Pit. It now blends up all the incoming food waste (25-30% solids; some of it pre-processed at a Republic Services’ facility in Sacramento), ensuring that there is a continuous, consistent flow of homogenized feedstock going into the digester.

From the Receiving Pit at Republic Service’s Oroville facility, the food waste now homogenized by the Landia Chopper Pump is transferred into two tanks (40’ diameter by 24’ high), where the first acid-forming phase of the biogas production process takes place.

These heated tanks contain bacteria that break down the material and prepare it for its onward process. When the feedstock is ready, it is then pumped into the main digester where the biogas-producing bacteria get to work.

Ken Jacobs, Landia’s Aftermarket Manager, added: “It’s fair to say that we had some fun and games at first with the install of the new Chopper Pump. Sometimes, nothing seems straightforward when upgrading a biogas plant (!), but Dave and I worked closely to make everything right. We have a fully-stocked inventory in the US, so can always provide back-up, without delay.”

In 2022, Republic Services recycled 2 billion pounds of organic waste. Diverting this organic material from a landfill provided a climate benefit equivalent to removing the annual emissions of 22,000 passenger vehicles. Organics recycling directly supports Republic Services’ sustainability goal to increase the recovery and circularity of key materials from the waste stream by 40% by 2030.

Transforming waste into energy is a vital global issue

Talking to an industrial door company in Newcastle upon Tyne may appear to lack immediate synergy with a global issue but Hart Doors is well ahead of the pack when it comes to climate change.

Research suggests that the global Energy from Waste market will reach an investment level of 50 billion dollars by 2027. That is three years’ time.

Doug Hart, chairman, Hart Door Systems, says that the energy from waste sector has some unique challenges such as strict planning conditions for Energy from Waste plants

Noise is a factor, escaping odours and vermin infestation are two more. The actual process of managing the waste creates humid environments and corrosive atmospheres so the door type and installation have to be to the highest standards.

Typically for an Energy from Waste site in Moscow we supplied 22 doors, 11 high-speed ‘Speedor Storms’ and 11 manually operated swing doors. We also recommended 4m x 6m Speedors which were efficient and cost-effective.

Considering the challenges faced by those in the Energy from Waste sector, we know that soundproofing and durability are desirable features – which is why multilayer PVC is used in our Speedor Storms to ensure their strength, as well as providing tear resistance, which extends their life spans. The multiple layers, which trap air, also mean the door can be used to contain sound.”

Nearer home Hart has completed a contract to supply seven insulated shutters and one high-speed Speedor Storm at the Dundee and Angus Energy from Waste facility at Baldovie, north east of Dundee.

To illustrate our broader approach, like many of its contracts we addressed the technical challenges first by working with the design consultants throughout. After all a typical new build project which will use around 110,000 tonnes of residual waste per year to generate electricity.

In the important global dimension there is an urgent need to maintain and accelerate sustainability in the light of climate change/global warming acceleration. This is seeing growing demand for Waste-to-Energy facilities across the world with the global market forecast to grow by nearly 7% by 2025.

Not only does this create energy in the process but it uses waste created by growing populations across the Globe. Accordingly Hart regards Energy from Waste as a developing sector which from the beginning the process of getting rid of waste and generating electricity is not straightforward.  

As a result Hart has adapted its existing door brands such as Speedor and purpose-designed doors that can operate alongside in potentially hazardous environments. To cope with these  environments is extremely challenging.

As an example Hart has developed a series of enhancements to its standard roller shutter specification. These significantly extend the life and the operational reliability of these essential doors.

High humidity, corrosive atmosphere and vermin damage are particular problems and lead to unreliable installations without preventative design enhancement. Hart’s expertise in developing custom doors to maximise performance in any environment is widely acknowledged.

Hart’s solutions can be found at some of the world’s major Energy from Waste projects. Hart’s global presence will increase significantly as the need to convert waste to energy becomes more urgent.
