Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is the natural breakdown of organic materials into methane and carbon dioxide gas and fertiliser. This takes place naturally, or in an Anaerobic Digestestion Plant. A digester is a sealed vessel (or series of vessels) in which bacteria act without oxygen. The organic material content(s) needs to be fully mixed and warmed.
Biogas is the name given to the mixture of gases formed during the anaerobic digestion of organic wastes.
Our Anaerobic Digestion Plant converts most of the organic material in food waste into renewable energy – electricity and heat. The remaining material is a liquid biofertiliser containing nitrogen, phosphate, potash and other trace elements which can be spread to farmland, significantly reducing the need for manufactured/inorganic fertiliser. Anaerobic Digestion plants can also process energy crops, farm slurries, crop waste and other organic materials.
Shropshires food waste recycling service accepts loose, packaged and liquid waste contained within bags, skips, compactors, trade waste vehicles, drums, IBC's, tankers, dolav's and on pallets. Loose food waste is fed straight into the Anaerobic Digestion Plant while packaged waste is processed in a special de-packaging machine and then re-used via waste to energy.
