What is Anaerobic Digestion?

Anaerobic Digestion is simply the controlled breakdown of organic matter without air, used to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is a biological process that produces an energy-rich biogas, principally composed of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), which can be used as a fuel.

CleanWorld’s Commitment to R&D

Anaerobic digestion is an ever-evolving technology. The CleanWorld R&D team continuously strives to develop innovative processes and technologies to improve biogas system efficiency, stability, and usability. The following are examples of some of our R&D efforts:

  • Improved process modeling
  • Dynamic modeling of anaerobic digestion systems
  • Prototype development
  • Pilot-scale digester operation for feedstock evaluation and process enhancement
  • Testing and design of pre- and post-processing equipment
  • Testing of advanced biogas-energy conversion technologies

Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic digestion processThe benefits of Anaerobic Digestion are:

  • Captures 100% of the harmful greenhouse gas emissions from organic waste
  • Reduces odor
  • Produces renewable energy
  • Produces nutrient rich compost and other valuable soil amendments
  • Processes concentrated liquid waste to significantly reduce BOD
  • Diverts waste from landfills
