An opportunity for Waste Management Companies
With increasing public demand for green and sustainable solutions, biogas technology has a lot to offer to a waste management company.
• Increased opportunities to handle wet organic waste streams
• Utilization of energy content in an existing dry waste stream
• Increased value of the output
• Increased profit for the company
• A greener image
Increased opportunities to handle wet organic waste streams
Existing facilities are often limited to handling dry or semi-dry compostable waste streams. Many clients would like to have just one business partner to manage their waste and an improved facility in the form of a biogas plant capable of handling both dry and wet organic waste will meet this need. The new service will expand the relationship with existing partners as well as attract new clients.
Utilization of the energy content in an existing dry waste stream
The composting process often used for dry waste does not take advantage of the energy potential. Some of the dry waste can be processed in biogas plant to produce energy in the form of heat and electrical power.
Increased value of the output
Anaerobic digestion of the waste material combined with pasteurisation will eliminate the risk of spreading diseases from the digestate to farmland, thus increasing the value of the digestate and broadening the potential markets for it.
Increased profit for the company
The potential to process additional waste streams with possible higher gate fees while producing green electricity will increase the turn-over and profit of the business.
A Greener Image
Production of renewable energy will promote a greener image for the waste management company which is an important factor in this day and age.
