The technique was developed in the 1940s in the United States, but classical drilling remained the method of choice for many decades. However, over the last decade as classical wells have become depleted, fracking has been […]

A thermal hydrolysis process (THP) plant is essentially a pressure cooker that begins the process of transforming sewage into methane by heating it to about 160 degrees. The resultant substance, akin to coffee granules, is then placed in an anaerobic digester which breaks it down further, with the temperature reaching 800 degrees for several seconds […]
