Biogas plants

Biogas plants generate electrical energy by means of fermentation substrates of agricultural origin, among other things.

In accordance with DWA -A 793 (TRwS 793) and the WHG regulations, all wastewater pipes that discharge substances hazardous to water must be friction-locked, i.e. welded or bonded. Storage tanks must in many cases be double-walled and above 25 m³ volume must be equipped with leakage monitoring or overfill protection. All accessories such as inlets and separating shafts must also comply with the regulations and be welded or glued on.

Defective JGS facilities, such as silo facilities, repeatedly lead to contamination of the groundwater or the receiving waters, streams and rivers located in the neighborhood. Fermentation juice can reach pH values between 4 and 5 due to acid formation during the fermentation process. The components used must therefore have an appropriate acid resistance.

In the design of these plants, of course, many different designs are possible.

The company SABUG will be happy to assist you with the design of your drainage system and make suggestions for execution that will support the work of the planning offices. The documentation of all plant components is, of course, part of the delivery.

Which version of wastewater discharge or water storage is used is ultimately determined by the operator. But in all cases, the responsible water authorities (lower water authority or the district office) must agree and issue a permit under water law. For this purpose, some documents such as site plans must be submitted. Please also note that not all designs shown here are approved by all lower water authorities and district offices. Please check with your local authority first. However, the binding planning of the plant can only be carried out by the operator himself or with the help of architects and/or engineering offices.
