Product Description

An Extensive Experience with Feedstock Supply for Biogas and Biomethane

MBP has an extensive track record and experience with a variety of substrates for biogas and biomethane production and is one of the major players in the area of industrial (non agricultural) feedstocks. MBP provides a large range of substrates for biogas and biomethane plants, also known as anaerobic digestion plants. The substrates originate from food/feed or oleochemical producers where they are generated as inevitable by-products. They are typically used as co-substrates in combination with other agricultural substrates.

MBP ensures that these substrates are analyzed and then registered for use in biogas plants. They calculate their gas potential and monitor that the substrates comply with legal requirements and product specifications. Their people’s excellent technical knowledge enables them to evaluate how substrates proposed for any individual plant would interact with the rest of the substrate and how the substrate can be managed within the biogas and biomethane plant in order to get an optimized output of biogas or biomethane.


Feedstock Supply: A Challenge for the Biogas & Biomethane Industry

MBP Solutions - Example of a biogas plant - Feedstock supply for Biogas and BiomethaneIn today’s market, it is important to choose an established, experienced and professional supplier. Industrial substrates and co-substrates for biogas and biomethane are difficult to source on long-term contracts. Many customers want long-term supply contracts which give supply security however a large part of the market for substrates is a short-term market only.

Often industrial substrates and co-substrates for biogas and biomethane have poorly defined quality profiles and technical characteristics with regard to how they can integrate into a biogas or biomethane plant. This is often due to lack of focus and knowledge by the industrial producers and by the scarce general knowledge on the biological processes that are at the base of the biogas production.

The biogas and biomethane industry is still a young industry – and thus an industry with teething troubles stemming from many new and small players; lack of product standards; and suppliers’ and customers’ lack of experience with the products. This is why it is so important for buyers to make sure they are working with established providers like MBP.

MBP has unique long-term relations with an increasing number of suppliers of industrial residues and by-products that can be used as substrates for biogas and biomethane generation. This puts MBP in the unique position of being able to guarantee long-term contracts. When you buy substrates from MBP, you can be confident that MBP will honor the contract, as you are not just dealing with the middleman.

  • Quality

MBP is dedicated to supplying products with a defined quality profile as specified. A stringent quality control program ensures that all orders are produced to defined quality standards before delivery to the customer. This guarantees the customer a problem free application. RSI Laboratories (LINK), part of the MBP Group, offers dedicated analytical services to assess the full profile of all substrates.

  • Logistics

On a daily basis our team in charge of logistics management and customer service ensures that our products are delivered on time and according to all agreements. This is particularly relevant for biogas and biomethane plants as they often rely on local networks for their material supply

  • Unique Technical Skills

Customers have very specific and technical requirements. Our deep chemical knowledge combined with solid technical competence ensures that by-products from various industries can be matched to plants in order to optimize individual substrates. ReSource Labs, for example, offers specialized analyses that allow a precise evaluation of feedstock.
