Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic Digestion is the production of methane gas which can then be used in various ways.


Anaerobic Digestion is the processing of biological materials such as food waste or specifically grown energy crops in a sealed airless environment. Doing this releases methane gas which is captured and then used in various ways.

The gas can be used to power a combined heat and power (CHP) engine which produces electricity and heat or the gas can be cleaned up and either exported to the gas grid or used in a normal gas type engine or heat requiring process.

Anaerobic Digestion is an established technology which has very good opportunities for the right processes.
