Research project NEOBIO

Scientists and developers from Budelmann Elektronik collaborate with the University of Applied Siences in Münster and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf in the context of a new research project. The aim of the project NEOBIO (co-funded by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture) is the significant increase of the efficiency of biogas plants through the fluidic optimization of the mixing process. Thus the energy demand can be lowered while the gas output can be augmented.
For this purpose the consortium develops measurement technology: small, submersible multi-sensor capsules collecting information within the biogas plant and sending them outside. Thus, influences on the stirring process can be empirically tested for the first time. Afterwards, the project partners can develop customized stirring strategies that are optimized with regard to the specific needs and the respective substrate mix in the biogas plant.
The project started in May 2019 and will last 3 years.
