The food industry produces tremendous amounts of waste at food production facilities, distribution centers, grocery stores, restaurants, and homes. About 40-50% of all food never gets eaten due to damage during transit, lack of sale, consumer wastage. There is a need for an organic waste to energy solution to separate and beneficially transform this into a renewable energy feedstock, reducing greenhouse gas emission.
The Global Water & Energy’s Raptor system is a waste to energy process using micro-organisms to break down biodegradable material in waste, such as unused feedstock or stubble to digest it. It transforms almost any organic residue into biogas using a robust, liquid-state anaerobic digestion process. It uses an enhanced pre-treatment method followed by multi-stage biological fermentation. These advanced measures that improve conversion efficiency include enzymatic, chemical, thermal, biological, and mechanical techniques.
The cycle concludes with harvesting the unconsumed digestate residue for soil improvement, refining the biogas, and using it to generate heat or electricity. The Global Water & Energy’s Raptor system processes food waste, agro-industry / industrial residues, and energy crops grown for the purpose, such as corn silage, various grasses, and algae. Moreover, the undigested by-product may be used as compost or agricultural fertiliser as part of the recycling solution.
