Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas

Biogas Plants

Turn today’s organic waste into tomorrow’s green energy.

Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas Production

The growing public and political call for resourcefulness and climate protection drives the interest of recovering organics material. Advanced technologies such as anaerobic digestion turn green waste and food waste into biogas – a clean, reliable and renewable energy source. The biogas can be converted to electricity, heat or renewable natural gas and therefore provides additional revenue streams. The options with anaerobic digestion and biogas production provide a lot of flexibility and play a key role for the future of renewable energy.

What is Anaerobic Digestion?

Anaerobic digestion is a series of biological processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material – such as manure, waste water solids, food waste, green waste, fats, oils, greases – in an oxygen free environment, generating a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide called biogas. The biogas can be combusted to generate electricity and heat, or can be processed into renewable natural gas and transportation fuels. The separated digestate can be composted or converted into other fertilizing products.
