This new publication co-authored by EBA gives a complete and accessible introduction to the digestion of biowaste.
Digesting organic waste and by-products from different sectors such as agriculture and municipalities is essential to protect our environment from soils and water degradation as well as to counter the effects of climate change. Moreover, applying waste digestion at a large scale can bring clear benefits to the economy via the production of sustainable products. Within this context, the booklet aims to give concise and practical information on how the anaerobic digestion process is done, the technology and science that is behind it, safety measures that are to be taken into account and the results that can be expected.
This booklet tables not only the possibilities for waste digestion in Germany and Europe, but its focus is worldwide, as the challenges that we face in waste management and farming are fairly similar across the globe. The end of the booklet contains a set of state of the art Reference Plants operating in four continents, followed by an up-to-date Company Directory with plants digesting different kinds of wastes.
The booklet can be accessed free of charge here.
