Equipment for feedstock streams treatment for a biogas plant by separating different waste types and crushing the feedstock to optimal-sized fractions.
We provide feedstock pre-treatment equipment and feeding solutions for most feedstocks used in biogas plants. The solutions are always based on the characteristics of the feedstock and the required capacity, so they are selected for each project on a case-by-case basis and from the best-known technologies in the industry.
In order for the biogas plant microbial process to work optimally, the feedstock must meet certain criteria:
When municipal organic waste (biowaste) comes from mixed waste separation, through separate waste collection or from food industry, it almost always contains plastics and other impurities. These impurities can cause challenges in the biogas reactor and lower the fertilizer value of the end digestate, so it is recommended to separate them before the biogas production process.
There are a number of solutions for the pre-treatment of biowaste, and the equipment is typically selected according to the amount of impurities, the type of biogas reactor and the quality requirements of the end digestate. Options include:
The feedstock equipment is called a combination of a silo and conveyor assembly that transfers feedstocks after receiving, and possible pre-treatment, to the biogas plant. The feeding equipment can be built on or under the ground and can be located outdoors or inside the building. Already at the budget offer stage, feeding equipment can be measured so that taking into account potential need for biogas plant expansion.
