There is a wide variety of digesters as well as applications of this technology. Each should be carefully designed around the feedstock and business objectives. There is no one digester that will work for every application. A digester designed for a wastewater treatment plant is not the same digester that we would deploy in a dairy operation. For this reason, Renewable Energy Innovations seeks out the right technology partner that best fits the project's needs.
One of our technology partners is BIOFerm Energy Systems. They have operating plants and a wide variety of digesters all over the globe producing a range of end products from a seemingly endless list of resources.
The U.S. is currently home to over 2,200 operational biogas-producing sites, according to the American Biogas Council, including:
Cattle, poultry and swine manure, dinner scraps, wastewater treatment plant sludge, vegetable canning and potato processing waste, beer-making residuals, landfilled trash and the list goes on indefinitely. Materials that most people would seek to dispose of are becoming hot commodities in the developing U.S. biogas industry. While seemingly infantile when compared to other countries’ mature methane-derived energy sectors such as Germany, recent years have seen a development boom inspired by a variety factors, including the U.S. renewable fuel standard.
Renewable Energy Innovations typically converts the biogas produced by digesters into power or biofuels utilizing our Gas-to-Liquid Technology. This allows us to meet local market needs whether it be electricity, gasoline, diesel or jet fuels. Other typical commodities from digesters also include fertilizer and recycled water once cleaned.
