Demetra have a successful day demonstrating their ADBag in Tipperary 

This event took place on the 16 November at the Horse and Jockey in Tipperary with a presentation from Franceso Panzeri (Demetra) who ran through the history of engineering and designing the ADBag. He discussed funding the research and building the pilot plant, interestingly both Enterprise Ireland and SEAI have been heavily involved in getting this company ready for business in Ireland. He also fielded many technical questions from visiting engineers and potential clients. We proceeded to the plant where the pilot ADBag was in situ at Tipperary Cheese. The pilot site was a scaled down version of a type you would buy, the ADbag was around 6m wide but it was working effectively as Francesco demonstrated.  It is designed to allow easy and cheap access to biogas production, ideally for small farms and food processors with a supply of waste. The Adbag solution is a modular system based on a prefabricated plastic bag, which is easy to be installed and maintained. A technical container unit regulates the recirculation, feeding and heating of the digester. The ADbag can be supplied with or without the CHP, whatever the client prefers but it is at an extra cost. The system is fully automatized and can be controlled remotely. It was a very informative day and we would like to thank Francesco for sharing  his knowledge and Donal Hayes (Tipperary Cheese) our host who graciously allowed 25 delegates to visit his farm to see the ADBag in action.
