MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE

Anaergia’s Approach for Waste Revalorization

Organics Extraction Line | Municipal Solid Waste | California, USA
Anaergia delivers innovative, proprietary, cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and proven solutions that are setting new global benchmarks. The Anaergia approach maximizes municipal solid waste recycling and recovery, and recycling plastics, papers, and metals, before capturing biodegradable organic material for conversion to renewable energy and fertilizer. A small portion of the rejected material is transformed into a sustainable refuse-derived fuel (RDF). Anaergia provides robust, cutting-edge, and economically viable solutions for organics and energy recovery from waste sources. Unlike traditional approaches, our solutions recover 90% of organics without limitations on in-feed contamination levels. The recovered organic material is a nutrient-rich feed for anaerobic digestion and can be used in co-digestion plants to increase biogas production, including renewable natural gas.

BENEFITS

  • Highest municipal food waste diversion efficiency.
  • Control over food waste extraction; Does not require customer behavior change.
  • Does not require additional collection routes.
  • Highest organic fraction quality.
  • No dilution water for organic extrusion required.
  • Anaergia’s municipal solid waste to energy solutions can be integrated in existing transfer stations.
  • As the organic fraction recovered from municipal solid waste is not diluted, transportation to digestion or compost sites is relatively low.
  • Landfill Diversion: Our facilities convert mixed municipal waste streams into valuable products, diverting over 90% of material away from the landfill.
  • Food Waste Recovery and Use: Our proprietary technology extracts over 95% of the putrescible organics from even highly contaminated waste streams. The organics are sent to proprietary systems which maximize the amount of energy recovered.
  • Municipal Solid Waste Recycling: Anaergia’s facilities recover recyclables including plastics, papers, glass, and metals.
  • Fertilizer production: Residuals from our facilities are low in physical contaminants and can be used as fertilizer on local farmland, providing a cost-effective alternative to chemical fertilizers for local farmers.
  • Increased value of refuse derived fuel, including RNG (renewable natural gas), for thermal processes like incineration or gasification.

APPLICATIONS

  • Mixed municipal solid waste.
  • Source separated organics.
  • Co-digestion with municipal wastewater.
  • Increase energy value of refuse-derived fuel for incineration.
