In this article we identify the five top Advantages of Digestate Separation using the Borger Bioselect digestate separation technology, available from manufacturer Börger GmbH
What is Borger Bioselect Digestate Separation?
With the Borger Bioselect Digestate Separator separation is achieved using the proven system for digestate pumping, storage, and separation offered by this well-established company.
The Borger Bioselect separator brings to all AD Plant Operators the ability to separate solid fibrous digestate leaving the biogas reactor from the liquid, reliably and cost-effectively.
List of 5 Advantages of Digestate Separation Using the Borger Bioselect Digestate Separator
1. Separating the solid fibres which leave the biogas reactor, from the liquid portion of digestate means that overall digestate storage capacity needed at the AD plant is reduced during the maturation period.
2. New uses emerge for both liquid and solid digestate. The separated solid is used by some as an energy source, but usually it is left in windrows for a period before being used as a soil improver and spread back onto the land
3. The Solid Phase can be dewatered to an optimum water content for use as bedding for cattle
4. Liquid Phase is most often used as a fast-acting crop fertilizer, and is easier to sell off-farm after separation.
5. The Liquid phase can then be injected into the soil, meaning no possibility of etching damage to the plants.

What Others Are Saying About the Borger Bioselect Digestate Separator – A Web Roundup
The Bioselect BS is a combination of the separation machine and two Rotary Lobe Pumps. These three drive units are joined with a special control unit with various control and safety components.
The separator is load-triggered. The feed pump only conveys the volume which the Bioselect BS is able to process. The high density solids discharge pump determines the degree of thickness. via Pandct.com
“We had a great response to this new product at last year’s show”, said Borger UK’s Managing Director, David Brown, “so it’s time now to give it centre stage. AD operators and farmers seem to like it for the throughputs (up to 60m3/h) and because it can be very easily integrated into an existing system or used as a mobile separator”.
Combining a separator and two Maintenance-In-Place (MIP) Borger rotary lobe pumps, the Bioselect separator is load-triggered, whilst the feed pump ensures that volumes do not exceed capacity.
The high density solids-discharge-pump determines the degree of thickness, so the user can (for example) thicken 4 per cent dissolved solids (DS) content liquid into 12 per cent DS to make it suitable for a tanker.
The Börger Bioselect Separator provides efficient separation technology. Using a purely mechanical process, liquid parts are separated from solid parts in the medium (such as digestate or liquid manure).
The installation options of the Börger Bioselect are as versatile as their requirements.
Whether attached to:
- a simple wall bracket,
- installed on a movable frame with an upstream macerator or
- as a mobile version with a conveyor belt,
the application options of the Bioselect are unique.
