Opportunities for Industrial Anaerobic Digester and Biogas Use

Posted by WesTech Engineering on Feb 20, 2017 5:59:00 PM

Livestock production and food processing are two of the many industries that continue to be scrutinized by environmental groups and consumers. Both industries come under fire for their use of resources (energy, water) and production of waste materials. An anaerobic digester that captures biogas combined with a process for utilizing the biogas can help on both fronts.

This increasingly popular approach allows livestock producers and food processing facilities to recycle discarded organics into energy and useful byproducts such as compost, fertilizer, and livestock bedding.
