Extracting value from waste
We are all very good at creating waste and then see it as a problem to dispose of.
The residual organic matter from food processing and agricultural production that we waste can be a valuable feedstock for the production of energy or the extraction of biochemical etc. Landfills are an inefficient means of processing municipal solid waste into biogas. Sewage treatment facilities produce biosolids which can be used to produce biogas. Methane produced from landfill and sewage treatment facilities is a significant greenhouse gas emission. Bioenergy Association promotes that our municipal and trade wastes should be seen as valuable and is keen to assist anyone interested in using the waste to make new products and/or energy.
Modern municipal waste disposal methods separate the solid organic matter from landfill and sewage treatment facilities and processes it into biogas which can be used to produce electricty or heat, or used as a vehicle fuel.
