Most food and drink processing residues can be treated with AD. By generating biogas you can add value to materials that will otherwise be discarded or removed from site.
Can Clearfleau Make a Difference?
AD Plants installed on industrial sites can generate energy for you. We can show you examples of food and beverage industry sites creating renewable energy from bio-degradable feedstocks. Could you generate renewable energy from your residues? If you face rising energy and disposal costs, on-site digestion could make your site more efficient and more sustainable.
Key features of Clearfleau’s robust on-site liquid digestion process include:
• Modular design on a confined footprint
• Ability to handle fatty and high solid residues
• More biogas than other high-rate systems
• Based on effective mixing of the digester
• Easy to operate and integrate on your site
Benefits to Your Business
Find out if Clearfleau’s on-site digestion system can handle your residues and by-products. To learn how on-site AD can remove up to 98% of COD load from your residues, contact us.
Converting residues into renewable energy cuts treatment costs, reduces energy costs and earns incentive revenue, optimising your return on investment. The benefits of on-site AD – if compared to conventional aerobic treatment or disposal include:
• Generation of renewable energy for your site
• Lower carbon footprint than aerobic treatment
• Reduced treatment / disposal costs for residues
• Lower cost to achieve watercourse discharge
• Limited residual bio-solids for off-site disposal
Discharge of cleansed effluent to watercourse requires further aerobic treatment which Clearfleau can also supply. In addition AD plants will cut your site’s carbon footprint, reducing fossil fuel derived energy costs.
We have operational plants on a number of UK food and beverage sites:
Andrew Griffiths, head of sustainability at Nestlé UK commenting on the success of the Fawdon AD project has said: “The opportunity this facility provides, with the savings and incentives is a key element in justifying financially the overall investment we have made here”
Tom Northway, Director of Lake District Biogas commented: “Clearfleau’s on-site digestion technology has a proven track record in the dairy sector. It will optimise gas output and deliver a solid return on capital invested. This will be the first dairy plant to supply green gas generated entirely from its residues to the national gas grid.”
