Anaerobic digestion (AD) technology that can combat rising water effluent and energy costs is being made available to the food and drink industry at no capital cost by Biogas specialist Ener-G

The firm has launched an outsourced AD service that includes the design, installation and operation of AD renewable energy facilities.

Energ-G will finance the project and recover the investment by sharing savings with the customers it works with. Customers will receive 20–50% of the annual savings, says Energ-G.

The AD process generates renewable energy from the organic by-products of production. Biogas created fuels a combined heat and power engine to create renewable heat and electricity. This reduces energy costs and carbon footprint.

It can also cut the chemical oxygen demand content of effluent, cutting effluent costs and offering potential for water recycling once solids are removed.
