From organic waste to sulphur free biogas.
Converting waste into energy and more specific agro waste like manures and high-quality energy crops is an established renewable energy option through-out the world.
Typically, biogas plants are characterized by large capital investment due to long retention times that require large plants with high operating costs. This means that as an investor large portion of investment is skunked into fixed assets leading to high risk. Further up to 50% of the substrate is never converted by tradition AD (anaerobic digestion) process, these materials are cellulose and hemicellulose.
Looking to nature it can be noted that all ruminant animal (cows etc) consumes large quantities of material high in celluloses and convert this into protein, water and bio-methane gas. This conversion happens in very short period hours rather than weeks.
By back-engineering this process the various step can be isolated allowing bio-methane production and proteins as by product under very controlled conditions.
Rapid Cellulose Biorefinery or iRCB for short is a technology specifically develop to achieve just that.
