Organic Waste Digesters
Organic Waste Digesters are devices that compost organic waste in an enclosed chamber where oxygen is limited, leading to the generation of methane and carbon dioxide by microbes in the waste.
While the commercial use of Organic Waste Digesters is not widespread yet, this "green" technology holds promise. Waste digesters are generally used for industrial or agricultural applications to manage waste or to release energy. The Organic Waste Digesters currently in operation are generally used for processing sewage sludge at sewage treatment plants and for processing animal waste on farms.
Most types of organic material can be processed with Organic Waste Digesters, including biodegradable waste materials such as leftover food, waste paper, grass clippings, animal waste, and sewage.
Benefits of Organic Waste Digesters
While treating biodegradable waste and sewage sludge are its main uses today, Organic Waste Digesters show promise and offer environmental benefits:
- Waste (anaerobic) digestion can reduce the amount of organic matter substantially, thus reducing the amount of organic waste that would normally be dumped at sea or in landfills, or burned in an incinerator.
- Anaerobic digestion reduces landfill methane gas emissions into the atmosphere.
- Anaerobic digestion is used as a source of renewable energy.
- Organic waste digesters can be fed with specially grown energy crops for biogas production.
Organic Waste Digester output types varies
There are various types & models of Organic Waste Digester equipment available in the marketplace. The output (finished product) of Organic Waste Digesters depends on the application.
Organic Waste Digesters convert solid waste organics to biogas. Biogas can produce electrical power, used as a transportation fuel alternative, or can be compressed and fed into natural gas pipelines. The use of biogas as a fuel helps to reduce dependency on fossil fuels.
Organic fertilizer pellets
Certain models of Organic Waste Digesters convert food waste into organic fertilizer pellets.
Waste treatment technology
Organic Waste Digesters can help to reduce the energy footprint of waste treatment plants.
