Anaerobic Digestion Services 

Sustainable Waste Management Solutions

Re-Source Recycling proudly offers anaerobic digestion services as part of our commitment to sustainable waste management solutions. Anaerobic digestion is a biological process that breaks down organic materials in the absence of oxygen, producing biogas and nutrient-rich digestate. With over 25+ years of experience in the industry, we leverage anaerobic digestion technology to convert organic waste into valuable resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote a circular economy.

Anaerobic digestion is primarily suitable for the disposal and treatment of organic materials, particularly those with high organic content. Some common materials that can be effectively managed through anaerobic digestion include:

  1. Food Waste: Anaerobic digestion can efficiently process food scraps from residential, commercial and industrial sources, including restaurants, grocery stores and food processing facilities.
  2. Agricultural Residues: Crop residues, manure and other agricultural by-products can be digested anaerobically to produce biogas and nutrient-rich digestate, offering farmers a sustainable waste management solution and a source of renewable energy and fertilizer.
  3. Wastewater Sludge: Anaerobic digestion is commonly used in wastewater treatment plants to treat sewage sludge, reducing its volume, stabilizing its organic content and producing biogas for energy generation.
  4. Organic Industrial Waste: Various industries, such as breweries, dairies and paper mills, generate organic waste streams that can be effectively treated through anaerobic digestion, helping to minimize waste disposal costs and environmental impact.
  5. Organic Municipal Solid Waste: Anaerobic digestion can be integrated into municipal solid waste management systems to divert organic waste from landfills, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce renewable energy and valuable by-products.
  6. Animal By-products: Animal carcasses, slaughterhouse waste and other animal-derived by-products can be safely and efficiently digested anaerobically, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional disposal methods such as incineration or landfilling.
  7. Organic Residues from Bioenergy Production: Residues from bioenergy production processes, such as bioethanol production or biodiesel manufacturing, can undergo anaerobic digestion to recover additional energy and nutrients from organic materials.


Anaerobic Digestion Process

Our anaerobic digestion process involves several key steps:

  1. Feedstock Preparation: Organic waste, such as food scraps, agricultural residues and wastewater sludge, is collected and prepared for digestion.
  2. Digestion: The organic material is introduced into anaerobic digesters, where bacteria break down the waste in the absence of oxygen, producing biogas and digestate.
  3. Biogas Recovery: Biogas, primarily composed of methane and carbon dioxide, is captured and can be used as a renewable energy source for heat and power generation.
  4. Digestate Treatment: The nutrient-rich digestate remaining after digestion can be further processed and used as fertilizer or soil amendment, closing the nutrient loop and promoting soil health.

Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic digestion offers numerous environmental, social and economic benefits:

  1. Green Energy Production: Biogas produced during anaerobic digestion can be used to generate renewable energy, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and mitigating climate change.
  2. Waste Diversion: Anaerobic digestion diverts organic waste from landfills, where it would otherwise contribute to methane emissions and soil contamination.
  3. Resource Recovery: Nutrient-rich digestate can be used to improve soil fertility and agricultural productivity, reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers.
  4. Economic Opportunities: Anaerobic digestion creates jobs, stimulates local economies and provides revenue streams through energy sales and by-products.
  5. Environmental Stewardship: By closing the organic waste loop and promoting resource efficiency, anaerobic digestion supports sustainable development and environmental stewardship.
