A complete kit for industrial scale biomethane production from agricultural by-products to energy. A new sustainable digester concept for the exploitation of agricultural residues
Nowadays, the construction of digesters for biogas plants is made of steel or concrete, which is highly expensive and not eco-friendly. Recent changes in EU directives on lowering incentives for biogas production have excluded sophisticated solutions, promoting the choice of simple, innovative and cost-efficient solutions.
Alvus proposes a new construction philosophy for the digesters based on the eco-friendly solution of mechanically stabilized earth (MSE).
Their solution provides several key advantages: (i) Realization of larger volumes, at a drastically reduced cost (55% CAPEX savings compared to traditional concrete digesters); (ii) Lower CO2 emissions (up to 85%), reduced environmental impact and better incorporation of the plant in the agricultural landscape; and (iii) Easy and quick construction. Alvus will develop, validate and commercialize a disruptive innovation, revolutionizing the entire biomethane market.
