The patented two-stage digester converts manure and other organic wastes into three valuable byproducts: a biogas, which can be burned in a genset or turbine to create electricity or scrubbed to make natural gas (i.e. CNG for transportation fuels); a biosolid, used as a high-quality bedding for cows or as a soil amendment; and a liquid stream that is non-odorous and can be applied as a fertilizer to growing crops.
DVO's anaerobic digester can process a tremendous variety of commercial and agricultural waste streams – including municipal separated organics, wasted food and food processing waste, and animal manures from dairy, swine, and poultry operations. Many other types of organic wastes can be digested in DVO's digester, such as fats, oils, sugars, starches, etc.
The system can be implemented at agri-businesses with organic wastes such as meat packing plants, dairy plants, and vegetable processors as well as municipal sewage treatment plants and other waste treatment facilities.
Our digesters are designed to be operated by the owner/farmer, are simple to maintain and, above all, are optimized for reliability.
