Farmers, Monetize Your Waste! Yes, Now You Can.

BIOGEST AMERICA INC., US arm of the leading European biogas plant manufacturer, introduces a brand-new integrated biogas technology that turns stover into electric power and heat at the World AG Expo, the world's largest agricultural trade show.

TULARE, Calif. and DENVER, Feb. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The World AG Expo was the perfect stage for Biogest, operating out of Denver, CO, to present their innovative biogas technology allowing the economic utilization of stover. For the very first time, the market was introduced to an integrated system capturing the entire stover process beginning with the harvest, to the special pre-treatment, to finally generating electric power and thermal energy in the biogas plant.


Biogest is a single source provider of technological solutions for the exacting customer from the agricultural industry, delivering the optimal process line and an overall leveraged solution for processing stover.

A first timer at the World AG Expo, Biogest works in the US on stand-alone client projects as well as biogas plants jointly developed, operated and owned by Biogest and its local agricultural partners.

Biogest is a leading international manufacturer of biogas plants headquartered in Austria, with operations in Great Britain, Italy, the Czech Republic, Romania and Serbia. A young and agile company established in 2007, Biogest has more than 130 successfully operating biogas plants, spread throughout Europe, delivering power and biomethane to reinforce the company's compelling technological footprint.

Biogas is a renewable energy source with technological, ecological and economic benefits that allows energy production 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Thus Biogas will play an important role in the sphere of renewable energy sources along with small-hydro, wind and solar. On top of its contribution to achieve global climate protection goals, biogas helps to cut energy imports. The decentralized production of biogas energy improves rural infrastructure and diversifies rural income streams.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
