    Biogas leakage surveys


    Our gas leakage detection service is key to avoiding financial losses and also reducing health & safety risks and damage to the environment through fugitive emissions. The service covers a full survey of the AD plant including:

    • Digesters, CHPs, biogas upgrading equipment, foils, pipes and flanges
    • Analysis of emissions from CHP and double foiled covers
    • Analysis of diffusion through biolene membranes
    • Report with images, videos and repair priority table
       

    Detection methods

    The survey is conducted using a methane sensitive camera and infra-red devices to detect every leakage on the biogas plant.
     

    When should you conduct a survey?

    • At the start of full operation
    • After significant maintenance work
    • If you can smell biogas at any points around the plant
    • If your feed to gas conversion is lower than expected (and the biology remains stable)
       

    In our experience, based on over 200 audits

    • 25% of plants had significant leaks causing serious financial losses and safety concerns
    • 60% of plants had minor leaks; fixing these results in a payback on the survey cost within 12 months
    • Only 15% had no leaks
