The project focuses on the development of a competitive metrological solution for online data capture of important process data to be used as control variables for process control in biogas plants designed for the processing of biogenic residues and organic waste.
The project aims to apply measurement solutions, based upon newly developed sensor technology for the online measurement of key process data. The goal was to increase the degree of automation in biogas plants and to propose new approaches for process optimization. Additionally, it was envisioned to include other materials into the digestion process as a result of the process optimization.
Exploration of the complex microbiological processes occurring in biogas plants and their optimization through the development of highly sensitive measuring systems, for a long-term stable direct use in the various liquid and solid phases present in multistage biogas plants. This can be carried out in the form of spatially distributed sensor arrays for the measurement of pH, ORP, dissolved gases and volatile fatty acids.
