OVERVIEW

The SEFE Spoke project investigates Technology Readiness Level (TRL) advances in Anaerobic Digestion (AD) technologies to improve biogas recovery from 2nd generation AMFM RESIDUES. This project will assess a range of measures to improve biogas production and validate the techno-economic viability of sustainable energy recovery from AD in on-farm and centralised AD settings

CURRENT ACTIVITIES

  • development of cost-effective and efficient wastewater treatment technologies
  • recovery of organic waste and biomass for use as a sustainable and clean energy source and for building a green agriculture industry
