Established Organic WTE Results

Anaerobic digestion is a collection of processes by which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. The process is used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to produce fuels.  It is used as part of the process to treat biodegradable waste and sewage sludge. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere.  Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a source of renewable energy. The process produces a biogas, consisting of methane, carbon dioxide and traces of other ‘contaminant’ gases. This biogas can be used directly as fuel, in combined heat and power gas engines or upgraded to natural gas-quality bio-methane. The nutrient-rich digestate also produced can be used in the production of an environmentally stable fertilizer.


  • Turns biogas waste to fuel.
  • Provides an environmentally stable solution.
  • Mitigates liability from sewer sludge, animal manure and FOG.
  • Reclaims water for reuse.


Quick Case Study

Our partners are currently developing the largest digester project for food, agricultural and waste water treatment sludge in Salt Lake City, UT.  Energy3 International provided developmental and financing services for this project.
