How Anaerobic Digestion Processes Are Applied To Municipal Solid Waste For Biogas And Waste Diversion

Increasingly Anaerobic Digestion Processes are being Applied To Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) for the production of biogas as a renewable energy source, and also for Waste Diversion. Waste Diversion in this context means the diversion of waste (especially organic waste) away form landfill. Anaerobic digestion (AD) of MSW is often part of an MBT Plant […]

It will ferment naturally, in a landfill, which even when lined and capped is at comparatively little cost. But, landfills do bring with them considerable environmental and safety hazards. They require extensive gas abstraction and leachate control systems […]
