Modern society produces ever-increasing quantities of waste materials, which (in well populated countries such as the UK) are causing political, environmental and financial concerns.
A new economic and environmentally viable treatment and conversion of wastes containing organic material has been developed. A major breakthrough in the form of the internationally patented Bioplex ® process which is being developed as a commercial, economic and environmentally acceptable alternative to landfill, mass incineration and sea disposal.
The Bioplex process can include the Portagester ®, a revolutionary new pre-composter and anaerobic fermenter for the treatment of farm and horse stable manures; food and catering wastes; trade, garden and local authority wastes. The Portagester can be used as an add-on to conventional anaerobic digesters or supplied as a complete system.
Depending to some extent upon the type of feedstock being treated, the plant is relatively odourless, clean and compact; sealed vessels prevent cross-contamination and disease risk from birds, rodents and insects.
The fermented and composted solid material can be used as organic fertiliser-rich fibre for soil conditioning and as a growing medium, with the environmental and political advantages of replacing peat and petrochemical based fertilisers. Separated liquid can be treated in an anaerobic digester (AD) to produce biogas - an energy source.
After several years of research and development (see news and updates) and extended testing, the final digesters as products will become available later this year or early next.
