- Biomass gasification
- Landfill gas
- Anaerobic digestion of waste waters containing bio waste materials
- Sewage sludge digestion
Such gases can be used for either power generation or producing heat and steam for process use.
Biogases can be used for heat or steam raising in convention boilers for nearby process needs or for power generation using the following technologies:
- Gas engines
- Boilers with steam turbines
We have experience of working with these technologies.
Mott MacDonald's experience ranges from market studies of biogas feedstock to due diligence and feasibility studies to technical support and guidance on the design and development of biogas plants.

Biogas represents an opportunity to use liquid waste or byproducts to generate heat, steam and power for local use.
Savings/value added demonstrated
The additional revenue from clean development mechanism, joint implementation mechanism and carbon credits can be a bonus.
