ADI® CH4 Generating Reactor (CGR)

Description

In-ground, low-rate anaerobic digestion process used predominantly for bioenergy production.

Biogas comprised primarily of methane, a reusable energy source, is generated as a by-product of the anaerobic digestion process. The ADI® CH4 Generating Reactor (CGR)(should CGR be with ADI above? ADI-CGR is a registered mark) system is ideal for applications such as organic food waste, waste streams high in starch, animal manure, and waste from palm oil mills, cassava plants, sugar refineries, and distilleries.

The reactor’s design facilitates efficient mixing between the anaerobic sludge and the feedstock and separates the hydraulic and solids residence times to enhance biogas production and solids breakdown. The large volume of the CGR(samecomment as above) system offers extended biomass contact and good process stability. The settlement zone is designed to collect sludge with a built-in recycling/wasting system that enables the sludge to be recycled to the distribution zone or wasted, when required.

  • Consistent effluent quality
  • Convert organic waste to recoverable green energy (heat and power)
  • Waste sludge suitable for land application as liquid fertilizer due to high nutrient content
  • Liquid effluent can be irrigated onto farm land as a nutrient supplement
