- Consultancy & support – Electromechanical support Once the decision is made to start with anaerobic digestion, important choices have to be made regarding the necessary equipment (valves, pumps, agitators,…) and the most ideal configuration. Also in existing plants, optimization of the electromechanical equipment can lead to a more efficient process. OWS can offers assistance for both new and existing plants regarding: […]
- Household waste The introduction of anaerobic digestion into the treatment of municipal solid waste (MSW) and source separated organics (biowaste) is one of the most successful and innovative technology developments observed during the last two decades in the waste management field. Household waste organics contain energy, and Organic Waste Systems is determined to get it out!
- Introduction Anaerobic digestion, much more than biogas Anaerobic digestion is the process whereby a series of biological and enzymatic processes produce biogas out of organic material, in the absence of oxygen. The biogas consists mainly out of methane (CH4, which has a high calorific value) and CO2. Biogas is a fuel derived from organic material and is […]
- Biogas Consulting & Support (BCS) “All-round consultancy & support of anaerobic digestion projects” General Even though OWS developed several anaerobic digestion processes on its own, the expertise of BCS covers all possible anaerobic digestion processes available worldwide. As a separate department, BCS offers a unique combination of both biological and mechanical/technical knowledge, allowing independent advice and guidance at each level […]
