The implementation of the anaerobic digestion technology to the treatment of agroindustrial waste allows the agri-food industry to increases their competitiveness in the market since by-products with a high added value are produced:
- Biogas. A versatile renewable energy: It can be stored easily and safely and presents the same applications as natural gas. It is possible to produce electricity and thermal energy by a cogeneration engine, generate thermal energy in a boiler or be used as an automotive fuel after being cleaned.
- Compost. Agroindustrial waste treated, once a separation process has been applied, allows the generation of a high quality solid fertilizer and water for irrigation.
