Anaerobic Digestion / Biogas Production

Anaerobic digestion is a biological process, whereby organic matter is converted primarily into methane, carbon dioxide and water, in the absence of oxygen.

The methane has an energetic content that allows its use as a gaseous fuel in several applications.

This process thus allows to treat the organic waste, producing a renewable energy source - biogas - that can be harnessed for the production of electrical and thermal energy.

Anaerobic digestion technology, when integrated into a pollution control system through integrated waste management, has some important advantages, among which the following stand out:

  • Reduction of treatment costs compared to conventional aerobic systems;
  • Energy recovery of resources, namely biogas;
  • Large reduction of COD (about 75%);
  • If the fuel produced is recovered, it provides a reduction in energy costs;

Anaerobic digestion can be designed from scratch or adapted to existing equipment at the customer, such as covering the ponds or reusing existing tanks at the facility.

Atlas Seis designs and monitors anaerobic digestion treatment systems according to the needs of each client.
