Biogas Digester Plant
The high level of methane and nitrous oxide released by intensive livestock farming is currently one of the world’s biggest sources of global warming and atmospheric pollution. As a staunch advocate for corporate responsibility, Biotech Farms is strongly committed to developing new solutions for reducing the environmental impact of livestock farming.
To help reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and overall electricity consumption, Biotech Farms has invested on a Waste-to-Energy Plant, specially designed to convert the methane in animal manure into eco-friendly biogas. We collect the animal manure produced on our farms and store them in closed tanks, where it then undergoes anaerobic digestion to produce methane gas. Using state-of-the-art European technology, our plant then captures the methane gas and uses it to power a micro-turbine engine, which generates both heat and electric power for use on our farm site.
To further minimise our impact on the environment, we channel the flue gas produced by our micro-turbine engine into our Fiber Tray Plant and Organic Fertilzer Drying facilities, creating an efficient and carbon-neutral method for drying our moulded fiber egg trays and organic fertilizers. Additionally, we recycle the digested manure into organic fertilizer for use by local corn farmers. Using organic fertilizer not only reduces the greenhouse gas emissions caused by the production of synthetic fertilizers, but also provides a cheaper alternative for local corn farmers currently dependent on expensive chemical fertilizers.
