C-Tech Innovation has recently successfully completed work on the Greenius project. Housed in a shipping container, the Greenius plant is designed to sterilise and homogenise organic waste so it can be used as feedstock for anaerobic digestion (AD) systems. The combination of in-house planning, design, modelling, building and testing of the plant makes it a great showcase of the integrated capabilities that C-Tech Innovation can offer.
As it is able to process up to 300 kg of organic material in an hour, Greenius is ideal for preparing low-grade organic waste (animal carcasses, discarded or rejected vegetable matter) for use in a biogas installation. The material is deposited in a hopper, after which it is macerated, heated to 180 °C at 10 bar, and then cooled to around 30 °C for injection into the AD system, with waste heat recovered. Greenius was funded by the UK Deputy Prime Minister’s office under the SBRI (Small Business Research Initiative) scheme.
