Food processing industry
With Xergi's biogas technology, the food industry has the potential to convert waste products into green energy and fertiliser. This can be an asset both to the company's supply and its green profile.
Treatment of products from the food industry
A Xergi biogas plant can treat all types of easily convertible organic waste, such as:
• By-products from dairies and breweries
• Vegetable waste
• Waste from slaughterhouses
• Organic residue from the food processing industry
Pasteurisation of waste
Xergi's FLEXFEED® technology ensures that slaughterhouse waste, for example – or other types of waste that could potentially contain pathogenic substances – is pasteurised (according to the EU Animal By-Product Regulation), so that the treated waste product can be used as a safe fertiliser product.
Mix of different types of feedstock
FLEXFEED® also takes into account the mix of different types of feedstock, so that the biological processes in the biogas plant are stable and provide a high gas production.
Xergi's technology gives the opportunity for waste products from the food industry to be mixed with e.g. manure, energy crops or waste products from other industries with a view to ensuring an adequate capacity and supply of biomass to the plant.
We will be happy to invite you to an introductory meeting to discuss your potential project. Among other things, we can assist with calculating the gas potential in the feedstock you have available. The gas potential is used to calculate the size of the biogas plant. We can then assist with moving the process forward.
Xergi works with biogas projects throughout the entire process: Project development, project design, permits, construction, commissioning and operations.
