BioDigesters

BioDigesters - Waste To Fuel

Biodigesters have been in use in other parts of the world for decades. China is the largest user and at last recorded information had over 30 million in use. The trend is just now catching on in American homes. Farming communities are familiar with their use in recovering methane from their livestock production facilities

Cows are the largest producer of Methane (a greenhouse gas)

Methane could become a viable fuel source in the midwest especially.

A Brief Explanation

The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials. Insoluble organic polymers, such as carbohydrates, are broken down to soluble derivatives that become available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. In Acetogenesis, bacteria convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide. The methanogenic archaea populations play an indispensable role in anaerobic wastewater treatments.

Anaerobic digestion is used as part of the process to treat biodegradable waste and sewage sludge. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digesters can also be fed with purpose-grown energy crops, such as maize.

Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a source of renewable energy. The process produces a biogas, consisting of methane, carbon dioxide, and traces of other ‘contaminant’ gases. This biogas can be used directly as fuel, in combined heat and power gas engines or upgraded to natural gas-quality biomethane. The nutrient-rich digestate also produced can be used as fertilizer.

With the re-use of waste as a resource and new technological approaches that have lowered capital costs, anaerobic digestion has in recent years received increased attention among governments in a number of countries, among these the United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, and the United States.

At True Organic Tech we are utilizing bio-digesters in homes, hydroponic facilities and are finding a huge positive impact on waste material.

Additional Info

Bio Digesters Create (capture) Methane

That statement is a little inaccurate. They capture the methane by creating a process for seprating the gas.
