This is a commercial demonstration plant for Bioplex’s “Portagester” technology, which combines a mobile pasteurisation and digestion unit with a conventional AD unit. This is a modular system which can be scaled according to requirements.
This “2nd generation process” uses pasteurisation and separation and can readily take liquids or solids, even with limited amounts of plastics. The cost per tonne treated is comparable to landfill disposal, with benefits of renewable energy and natural fertiliser production.
