Anaerobic digesters are an ideal solution to reduce waste streams and
provide clean energy. Sustainability leaders in the animal agriculture, food and
beverage manufacturing, and food retail industries have benefitted their operations
by creating a closed loop; and benefitted their brands by catering to the
triple bottom line — people, planet, and profit.
This waste-to-energy approach works by using a biochemical process to
convert organic waste (food scraps, manure, etc.) into methane gas which can
then be used for electricity, heat, or biofuel. Waste that would normally be sent
to a landfill is now used to help businesses manufacture energy. Excess natural
gas that is not used onsite can be sold to the power grid and ultimately the
We in the water management industry believe waste-to-energy initiatives
can greatly benefit communities because they aid in mitigating various
environmental concerns like pathogen control, odor control, and groundwater
contamination. Water management experts can help digester owners get the most
out of their investment by offering the following expertise and support:
Chemical — Watertech has the hands-on
