Get a Practical Introduction to Biogas Plant Design and Operation.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "Biogas from Waste and Renewable Resources: An Introduction" to their offering.

Written as a practical introduction to biogas plant design and operation, this book fills a huge gap by presenting a systematic guide to this emerging technology -- information otherwise only available in poorly intelligible reports by US governmental and other official agencies. The author draws on teaching material from a university course as well as a wide variety of industrial biogas projects he has been involved with, thus combining didactical skill with real-life examples. Alongside biological and technical aspects of biogas generation, this timely work also looks at safety and legal aspects as well as environmental considerations.
