Digestate Management

The simplest method of utilizing digestate is for fertilizing agricultural land without prior treatment.

However, since the number of biogas plants in the Federal Republic of Germany is growing markedly and considering that regions with a high livestock density already produce a large quantity of manure locally, digestate in the vicinity of a biogas plant often cannot be effectively used as fertilizer.

To counteract this problem, a biogas plant’s accruing digestate must be prepared in such cases to render it transportable.

To increase the digestate’s transportability, various procedures based on physical, chemical, or biological processes are being implemented or developed.

In view of this new problem, BGA Consulting specializes in physical digestate treatment processes:

- Separation

- Drying

- Membrane technology

- Evaporation

- Stripping
