3 Great Books for Biogas Plants

At the heart of biogas plants is the biogas itself, and biogas production process involves bacterial consortium to work along with.

How best to deal with the microbial groups is the art of making biogas that is fine in quality and moderate in quantity; which is always a trade-off: high quantity biogas is usually associated with poorer quality, i.e lower methane per mass or volume of substrate digested.

The balance between biogas quantity and quality is really the main concern of biogas production operators – and for this, a bit of science is required.

The following three books give a clear guide to the anaerobic process as a whole, its monitoring and how to tackle problems commonly occur in an upset anaerobic process. I would always recommend these 3 books for anyone interested to dive deeper into Anaerobic Digestion (AD) as I found these books to be so useful in my day to day experience working on anaerobic process.

Without further ado, here they are:

Those books—along with thorough field observation—would be sufficient to run a balanced and well-maintained process. I can assure you that these books would make you a more knowledgeable personel in this particular field. 😉

Bacteria Do Talk!

Well, they are using the so-called ‘chemical words’, which are specific chemicals for specific purposes. So, different chemicals for counting bacterial population and for launching an attack. This finding is a real breakthrough, for scientists can then manipulate these ‘words’ for medication, for instance.

How does such communication actually happen? Listen to Professor Bonnie Bassler of Princeton University in her 2009 TED talk below:

Rapid Skill Acquisition

Are you familiar with this phrase, “So much to learn, so little time?

I am sure you are. That, in fact, is a concern of many people. People love to acquire many skills, but not many could manage their way to. In the following video, you may get an insight on how to do exactly that.

Josh Kaufman has written a book on accelerated learning titled The First 20 Hours. For those of you interested to dive into the techniques Josh described in above video, go buy the book online.

O Hai!

Hi everyone! Welcome to The Notes.

My name is Paulinus Pandiangan, father for two amazing boys. I live in central Kalimantan, Indonesia. I have been here since 2013 as I started working at a biogas plant.

This blog would be about things of my interest—related to biogas or other things like music, TED talks, ideas, or simply opinions—that I find worth-sharing. I hope that the posts here worth of your time.

Enjoy! 🙂

As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.
