What is anaerobic digestion & biogas?

Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a process where organisms and microbes break down organic wastes in the absence of oxygen to produce biogas. Biogas is rich in methane and can be used to provide heat and power, a valuable by-product of the process is digestate. Digestate is rich in nutrients and can be used as a compost or to replace traditional fertilisers.

Energy Farmers Australia specialises in anaerobic digestion & biogas project development and can help you develop your project, large or small.
