The biogas that is generated is made mostly of methane, the primary component of natural gas. Recovered biogas can be an energy source for electricity, heating or transportation fuel.
Every tonne of food waste recycled by anaerobic digestion as an alternative to a landfill can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, one of the many benefits of anaerobic digestion. Some types of organic matter break down more easily than others. Generally, the more “digestible” the organic matter is, the more biogas can be produced.
To help with the performance process and for anaerobic plants to operate effectively they require a variety of nutrients for the micro-organisms to grow and function properly. See OMEX range of trace element additives.
