Fueling the future with waste

What is Anaerobic Digestion?

Anaerobic Digestion (AD), a groundbreaking process that transforms organic waste into valuable resources. What exactly is anaerobic digestion, how does it work, and what is the potential and benefits it holds for our sustainable future.

From waste to watts

Unpacking Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic Digestion is a natural biological process that breaks down organic materials in the absence of oxygen. This anaerobic environment facilitates the activity of microorganisms, primarily bacteria, to decompose organic matter, producing biogas and nutrient-rich digestate.

How Anaerobic Digestion Works

Input Feedstock

AD utilizes a variety of organic materials as feedstock, including agricultural residues, food waste, sewage sludge, and more. The feedstock is introduced into a sealed tank called a digester.

Digestion Process

Microorganisms thrive in the oxygen-free digester tank. These microorganisms break down complex organic compounds into simpler molecules through a series of biological reactions.

Biogas Production

One of the key byproducts of anaerobic digestion is biogas, which consists mainly of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Biogas is a renewable energy source that can be used for heat and power generation.


The remaining material after the digestion process is known as digestate. This nutrient-rich substance can be used as a natural fertilizer, returning valuable nutrients to the soil.

Watch the magic happen before your eyes!

Renewable Energy Source

Biogas produced during anaerobic digestion is a sustainable and renewable energy source. It can be used for electricity generation, heating, or even as a vehicle fuel, reducing dependency on fossil fuels.

Sky's the limit

Potential & Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion

GHG Emissions Reductions

By capturing methane produced during the decay of organic matter, anaerobic digestion prevents its release into the atmosphere. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, and its utilization for energy helps mitigate climate change.

Waste Reduction

AD helps address the growing issue of organic waste by converting it into useful products. This not only reduces the environmental impact of waste disposal but also contributes to a circular economy.

Nutrient Recycling

The digestate produced during AD is a nutrient-rich fertilizer that can enhance soil fertility. This closed-loop system contributes to sustainable agriculture by recycling essential nutrients.

Economic Opportunities

Anaerobic digestion creates economic opportunities by providing a source of renewable energy and valuable byproducts. It promotes job creation and stimulates local economies.
