Materials are prepared and loaded into these tunnels. The specially engineered gastight doors ensure the anaerobic digestion process begins smoothly.
This is where the magic happens: the hydrolysate is fed into these methane digesters where anaerobic bacteria produce biogas. The biogas is then used to generate heat and electricity.
Our top quality compost and compost-based soil products are valued in the region.
