Stainless Steel in Biogas Production

A Sustainable Solution for Green Energy.

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

Stainless Steel in the Dairy Industry

The modern dairy industry requires the use of cleanable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel equipment to meet the needs of milk product consumers everywhere. The latest brochure in the Sustainable Stainless series explains the role of stainless steels in the dairy industry and how they contribute to a sustainable solution for the human diet.

Stainless Steel in Solar Energy Use

There are many approaches to producing electricity and domestic hot water from solar energy. Whatever the technology, stainless steel has a role to play. It can be used as part of a substrate of amorphous cells or as a collector material in solar thermal panels. It can be found in ancillary components such as frames, fasteners and connectors. Stainless steel can also be an essential element in downstream equipment such as tanks and heat exchangers. Wherever it is used, stainless steel makes a contribution to the sustainability and eco-friendliness of our built environment.
