Stainless steel in biogas production

Energy from biomass is among the cheapest forms of renewable energy. The equipment to produce biogas comes into contact with corrosive elements. The correctly specified stainless steel can withstand the corrosive materials in a biogas plant. Stainless steel is typically used in digesters, pumps and valves, agitators, pipes and fittings and purification applications.

Key advantages of stainless steel tanks for biogas production 

  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • No need for protective coatings or a corrosion allowance 
  • Low maintenance which minimizes lost revenue due to process downtime 
  • Long service 
  • Quick installation 
  • Residual value at end of life
