  • Compost and Biogas from Organic Waste Materials

    Type: 
    Product

    A researcher at the University of California Davis working in cooperation with an outside collaborator have developed a multi-stage process and system for treating organic waste materials. This process produces a high-quality compost derived from food waste and other organic materials while avoiding the environmental problems of traditional composting methods such as emissions of odors volatile organic compounds and other noxious gases.

  • System for More Efficient Anaerobic Digestion of Waste

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: Traditionally landfills have been a common method of waste disposal. Unfortunately landfills produce large amounts of hazardous gasses and tend to pollute underground water supplies surface streams and wells. Furthermore due to the slow stabilization of waste landfills may not be used for other purposes for long periods of time and are thus a large waste of land particularly in metropolitan areas. Other approaches to waste disposal use anaerobic digestion of organic waste. Current methods of anaerobic digestion involve pumping liquid between bioreactors.
