How often does a disruptive technology arrive in the waste management market place?
We were all excited by Materials Recycling Facilities (MRF’s) and no one fails to be impressed with the ever-growing wheelie bin catalogue. Split bodied REL’s made food and organic waste collection services a reality within the municipal waste market.
So what’s appearing that is about to take the food and organic waste market by storm?
It has to be anaerobic digestion (AD), converting food and organic waste into business beneficial resources and generating electricity and heat and producing fertiliser. AD has a significant following in Germany with 8000 active sites. The technology is emerging in the UK with the construction of a number of 10-40,000 tonne annual throughput sites costing anything between £2M and £10M each.
So what are the options for smaller food and organic waste producers, generating waste in the 200 to 1000 annual tonnage range?
Very few, until SEaB Energy launched their MuckBuster™ and SEaB MB400 compact easy to install turnkey AD systems in shipping containers. MuckBuster™ and SEaB MB400 offer waste producers, waste management companies and anaerobic digestion operators and contractors exciting new options. The systems are modular, easily configured and scalable to address food and other bio wastes directly at the site of waste production.
