Novel anaerobic digestion process for livestock manure management - Innovation @ E2Expo
Updated : December 2020
Anaerobic digestion is a well-known recommended process for sustainable livestock manure management. Recent technology advances have improved the efficiency of the conventional process to produce high quality biogas with improved yield.
In this regard, Sustainable Green Technologies, an Israel firm has developed a patented biological process which has been found to improve the methane yield by about 30% compared to conventional process.
The technology called Integrated Ecosystem Solution (IES) uses innovative microbes which offers a complete solution for livestock farms with no additional chemicals or treatment equipment.
The process facilitates nutrient management and utilization of nitrogen and phosphorus (up to 90 percent removal) from the digestate so they can be sustainably reused. They also comply with the regulations regarding nitrogen/phosphorus loading in arable lands.
The company won the 2019 European Technology Innovation Award.
