Anaerobic digestion with biogas production has both economic and environmental benefits. 25% of all bioenergy in the future could potentially be sourced from biogas. Although anaerobic digesters have seen wide applicability, they typically perform below their optimum performance as a consequence of the complexity of the underlying process. This work involves the development of a generic advanced process control system to optimize the performance of anaerobic digesters. There is a requirement for a configurable monitoring and optimization system with associated sensors to optimize the production of biogas, combined with a degree of flexibility for quality and content of the digestate.
