Advetec, specialist in the use of advanced environmental technologies for the treatment of solid and liquid organic waste, has launched an industrial scale Bio-Thermic Digester (BTD), designed to rapidly process and reduce high volumes of municipal waste.
The BTD can turn municipal, food and industrial liquid waste quickly into distilled water and a dry powdery by-product, to be sold as high quality, refuse derived fuel (RDF). Advetec claims this RDF powder is dry and quick to burn.
Advetec’s technology has been trialled, tested and installed in applications over the last four years in the UK, the US and the Middle East. Chief executive Craig Shaw said: “With our new industrial sized Bio-Thermic Digester’s we can truly make zero organic waste to landfill a reality. We can turn commingled waste and anaerobic digestate into a valuable resource.
“Since this technology is completely scalable, banks of digesters can be linked to handle ever increasing volumes of waste, or each digester can be moved from site to site.”
