RE: Reader question from article: Floating geomembrane cover improves biogas collection, heat retention, and odor control

I am interested to install cover lagoon digester at my farm. I search some material from Internet for this project. If you share with me some material related to design and installation of cover lagoon anaerobic digester for biogas, I will be thankful.


Reply: The installation of floating covers for biogas capture (as well as other uses) follows the traditional methods of floating covers for potable water, surface impoundments, and related applications. There are many papers in the geosynthetics literature some as far back as 1984. The textbook “Designing With Geosynthetics” 6th Edition covers the topic on pages 605-613. [We] will scan the pages and send them to you. It should help you get started.
