Waste Treatment Benefits

  • Natural waste treatment process
  • Mature technology
  • Smaller physical footprint (vs. composting)
  • Reduces volume of waste for transport, land application, (vs. not using digestion)
  • Very efficient decomposition
  • Complete biogas capture
  • Nutrient recovery and recycling

Environmental Benefits

  • Dramatic odor reduction
  • Reduced pathogen levels
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
  • Platform for reducing nutrient runoff
  • Increased crop yield

Economic Benefits

  • Jobs (temporary / construction and permanent)
  • Turns cost item (i.e., waste treatment) into revenue-generating opportunity
  • Can operate in conjunction with composting operations
  • Improves rural infrastructure and diversifies rural income streams

Energy Benefits

  • Energy Benefits
  • multiple existing biogas end- use applications, including:
  • heat-only
  • electric-only
  • combined heat and power
  • pipeline quality biomethane
  • transportation fuel
  • baseload / dispatchable energy source (vs. intermittent wind and solar)
  • Distributed generation (which means lower transmission / transportation costs and higher reliability)
  • Direct replacement for non-renewable fossil fuels
