Digestion with an industrial digester
Organic co-products make a major contribution to the transition from a fossil-based economy to an economy based on biomass as a raw material.
In an industrial digester, bacteria transform organic by-products into biogas under oxygen-poor (anaerobic) conditions. Compared to other digesters, the diversity of co-products that can be fermented in an industrial digester is broad. Manure may also be fermented in an industrial fermenter, although this is less common in practice.
The gas produced can then be converted into green gas and, via a combined heat and power (CHP) system, also into heat. This recovered energy and heat can then be used directly. Industrial digesters are therefore often located in the industry.
At Looop, we have a large range of co-products suitable for the industrial digester.
