The new Pushige Biomass Energy Center in Hualien County on the east coast of Taiwan is the first biogas plant in the nation to make use of livestock manure as its feedstock, using a digester mixing system made by Landia.
The plant features six of Landia’s externally mounted GasMix methods, which enhance biogas yields. The 18.5 kw items are helping generate what is going to amount to approximately 876,000 kWh of electricity every year for the Taipower grid (equivalent to the electricity capability of 250 households) from 300 tonnes of livestock manure wastewater daily within the breeding space of Sanmin, Yuli Town where eight livestock farms are house to nearly 10,000 pigs and near seven hundred cows.
Benefitting from the Landia Chopper Pump, the digester mixing system draws thick liquid from the underside of the 6,000 m3 tank, where solids are chopped to accelerate the digestion process and forestall clogging of pipes and nozzles. In the first stage of the mixing process, the livestock wastewater is injected into the upper half of the digester, while biogas is aspirated from the top of the tank and blended into the liquid. เกจวัดแรงดัน250bar reduces buoyancy on the floor of the liquid, and the rising fuel bubbles proceed to mix after the pumps are switched off.
