Statement of Practice by Seydaland GmbH & Co KG
We have been involved in sustainable biogas production integrated into agricultural structures since 2002. Until 2010, we operated four plants of, on an average, 625 KW each. So we are constantly keen on optimizing our plants. This, however, only works as long as we are having the full load hours, the domestic current and the operating and maintenance costs firmly under control. Besides the combined heat and power plant (CHP plant), the function and the efficiency of the bulk material input is of crucial importance. We realized that the bulk material input element had to be able to meter all components in order to stay flexible over the long term. It needs to ensure a uniform, reliable feeding process at a minimal domestic electricity input and the resulting reduction of mechanical wear and tear.
Our experience has demonstrated that the systems on the market enable machine lives from 20,000 to 30,000 tons. With a plant of 30 t, fed each day, this limit is soon reached. We have always been wondering why we must push, squeeze and mill so as to finally realize that with the dosing of pure grass silage hardly anything works. In addition, there are the irregularities in the gas production after breakdowns lasting longer than 24 hours, which matter even more economically. Thanks to excellent coordination and the implementation of our practice-oriented views by Kranemann Company, we have been able to start up our desired solids dispenser in our fifth plant since January 2011. Right from the beginning, it has has met with all our expectations in an impressive manner. So, we are currently implementing another 65m³ solids dispenser and planning to replace the other systems step by step.
