Another Gaia EnviroTech Anearobic Digester installation was officially signed off including full gas certification in northern Victoria this week, marking a huge milestone for the project.
Following installation and commissioning of the equipment, the system was seeded with 120,000L of dilute sludge and is currently the unit is accepting approximately 30% of the site’s DAF sludge volume.,
The automated modular 3 bio-cell system will now ramp up capacity so it can accept 100% of the organic waste from the host site, whilst also contributing valuable renewable energy to supplement the requirements of the site.
“It is an exciting time in the bioenergy space at the moment, and this is another great example of how businesses are turning to anaerobic digestion as a viable solution for managing their organic waste in an environmentally friendly and economical way” says Sandy Gray, Technical Director at Gaia EnviroTech.
Based on the success so far, the team is exploring the possibility of incorporating the site’s other organic wastes into the feed stream of the biodigester.
