Anaerobic Micro-Digester Projects Guideline
Conventional anaerobic digestion to produce biogas is a proven, well known technology in the renewable energy and waste management sectors. With support and guidance from South Africa’s National Biogas Platform Micro-Digester Working Group's Steering Committee (composed of South African National Energy Development Institute, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy, the South African Local Government Association, the Innovation Hub, United Nations Industrial Development Organization, and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit - GIZ), SA-LED developed the Micro-Digester Guideline for stakeholders involved in the procurement, development and maintenance of anaerobic micro-digesters and their subsequent operation and maintenance. The Guideline details all aspects to consider throughout the lifecycle of a biogas digester project in order to assist the user in project design, planning, procurement, implementation, and monitoring of a project. The Guideline focuses on the major and most commonly implemented digester types, which form the basis and fundamentals of micro-digester design and implementation upon which other designs are developed.
