Anaerobic digestion is a commercially proven technology that uses a natural biological process which stabilizes organic waste in the absence of air and transforms it into biofertilizer and biogas.
Anaerobic digestion is widely used for recycling and treating wet organic waste and waste waters. It is a type of fermentation that converts organic material into a reliable technology for the treatment of wet, organic waste.
Organic waste from various sources is biochemically degraded in highly controlled, oxygen-free conditions circumstances resulting in the production of biogas which can be used to produce both electricity and heat.
Almost any organic material can be processed with anaerobic digestion. This includes biodegradable waste materials such as municipal solid waste, animal manure, poultry litter, food wastes, sewage and industrial wastes.
