Recycling of organic waste
Fermentation is a biodegrading material process in an oxygen-free atmosphere (anaerobic). The resulting methane-based raw gas is captured specifically, and used for energy. After treatment, it is fed into the gas network as biogas, or it is converted into green electricity and heat in a cogeneration unit.
After fermentation and energy recovery from organic waste, solid and liquid fermentation residue - natural fertiliser - remains. In agriculture, the natural fertiliser promotes growth of plants. This closes the material cycle. The Kompogas natural fertiliser and soil improver are completely sanitised. These quality products help achieve exceptional harvest results.
Fermenting and composting
Composting occurs with the addition of air, by contrast to fermentation (aerobic). The residue is compost. In classic compost heaps, there are always some anaerobic processes as well. This produces greenhouse gases, which are released into the environment and pollute it.
By fermenting organic waste, we contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
