Process

Biogenic waste is recycled in a purely bacterial process under exclusion of oxygen. The material spends approx. 10 - 14 days in the fermenter at 55 degrees Celsius. This process produces raw gas. The raw gas, which is later refined into biogas, can be fed directly into the gas network or used for electricity and heat production. The material leaving the fermenter at the end of the fermentation process is separated into a solid and a liquid part. Both are suitable as natural fertilisers owing to their high nutrient content. The use of the natural fertiliser in agriculture completes the natural ecological cycle.
