Are you looking for a storage solution for Anaerobic digestion (AD)?
Do you want to turn your waste into a resource? Instead of sending waste to landfill, you can use it to produce energy and fertilizer.
Anaerobic digestion is not a new technology, it has been used in the UK since the late 1800s, but an increasing number of anaerobic digestion plants are being built to generate clean renewable energy. Anaerobic digestion is also used to treat waste produced in homes, farms, supermarkets, and industry which helps divert waste from landfills.
DB Contracting can help you answer whatever questions you might have.
Questions to consider
- Do you have access to sufficient feedstock?
- Do you have a market for the digestate?
- Do you have good access, storing and handling facilities?
- Are you willing to take on a high capital project with a capital-rich initial period (i.e. can delay returns be absorbed in your cash flow model)?
- It produces fuel. Biogas can be used instead of fossil fuels.
- It produces fertilizer. Fertilizers are made from fossil fuels. The digestate from this can replace some synthetic fertilizers.
- It reduces our carbon footprint. The methane produced during anaerobic digestion is burned as fuel and therefore releases CO2 into the atmosphere. Because it comes from biomass, this does not contribute to climate change. However, if the same waste was left to degrade in a landfill site, the methane produced could escape into the atmosphere: methane has a global warming potential 23 times larger than that of CO2. Therefore, harvesting and using methane from biomass can help to prevent climate change.
- It can benefit many different people. AD potentially benefits the local community, the environment, industry, farmers and energy entrepreneurs and government.
