Anaerobic Digestion

SMARTFERM Dry Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Technology

Zero Waste Energy can design anaerobic digestion facilities for 5,000 TPY to 100,000 TPY of almost any organic material utilizing SMARTFERM proprietary technology.  SMARTFERM is a state-of-the-art dry anaerobic digestion system for organic waste processing. Like other dry fermentation, it is well suited for the production of biogas from stacked solid organic waste in a non-continuous batch process.

Unlike other dry fermentation technologies, SMARTFERM offers a sub-grade percolate tank, which significantly reduces percolate and biogas process piping runs as well as the size of motors and fans to move them.  The sub-grade percolate tank also greatly enhances the overall thermal efficiency of the process.  The SMARTFERM design allows for a thermophilic mode of operation and is offered on two platforms: a shop fabricated steel digester system or a cast-in-place concrete digester system. Our technology is built in the US specifically for the waste industry.

 All SMARTFERM systems can be designed to include biogas-processing technology for combined heat and power (CHP) generation for onsite or export use as well as compressed natural gas (CNG) for use to fuel waste transport vehicles.  In addition, in-vessel composting (IVC) options can provide partial or complete sanitizing of compost for the wholesale or retail market.
