The Economizer is a turn key solution for the AD industry. The technology reduces reliance on crop feedstocks and allows utilisation of low value residue materials. This could allow AD plants to save several hundreds of thousands of pounds a year.
Working as a feedstock pre-treatment system The Economizer uses a process of steam explosion to break down previously indigestible organic materials by removing the lignin coating. This means for the first time that materials such as straw, husks, shells, wood waste, reeds, biogas digestate and many animal manures can be used efficiently in the AD process.
