In the AD process the putrescible waste is converted, in total absence of oxygen, into biogas which is mainly made up of methane and CO2 and is eligible as renewable energy. AD really produces Green Energy and it is ultimately an industrial plant in itself.
The AD process has considerable advantages:
- It makes it possible to produce valuable renewable energy (electric power or vehicle fuel)
- Allows for efficient odor control
- Improves the energy balance of the plant
- Requires a very limited footprint
The AD is the natural complement of a composting plant as composting is the best way to recycle the solid part of the digestate.
In truth AD can replace the active phase of composting.
For anaerobic digestion Entsorga offers the COW proprietary solution to the market, which can be achieved by applying two alternative treatment technologies:
– the semi-dry method, developed in collaboration with Zenviro Tech
– the patented Florawiva wet system, developed in collaboration with Acea Pinerolese
AN INNOVATIVE GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP TO PROVIDE INTEGRATED BIOGAS SOLUTIONS
The founding members of the IBA include AB Energy (Italy), Zenviro Tech (USA), Entsorga (Italy), Greenlane Renewables (Canada), and Tietjen (Germany), all internationally recognized technology companies with long track records of success in the biogas industry.
These companies have joined forces on a non-exclusive basis to provide the global biogas industry with a unique, fully integrated organic waste to renewable energy platform solution. This platform solution will lower the inherent risks facing developers, investors and EPC’s in developing biogas plants, lowering project execution risks and improving their bankability.
With its global footprint, reach and supply chain, the IBA has the capability to process virtually any organic waste including livestock, food and green waste, generating both renewable natural gas as well as compost and other organic fertilizers for projects anywhere in the world. Extracting biogas from organic waste means not only producing bio-energy and other fuels from renewable sources, but at the same time drastically reduce CO2 emissions in compliance with the targets set by the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement to fight climate change.
