About the Solution:
The BioSqueeze 200, a signature piece of Fitec equipment, is a hydraulically operated press that separates waste into digestible and non-digestible fractions with a high degree of efficiency and reliability. It is capable of processing packaged and expired foods, and food waste from private households and restaurants, often without the need for additional liquids. Additionally, the BioSqueeze 200 produces a high-solids, energy-dense biopulp that is ready for pasteurization or digestion without any further processing.
Because it removes contaminants, the BioSqueeze increases the types of waste that can be accepted and contributes to keeping the digester free of build-up.
Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
Anaerobic Digester Associated Technology:
NOTE: There are several technology types that are used as part of an integrated manure management system that includes an anaerobic digester and are not applicable to manure management in other cases. The impact of these technologies on the critical indicators are represented as those of an entire anaerobic digester system.
- Long usable life and can be run reliably
- Creates energy and generates environmental credits
- Requires proper preparation of the feedstock
- Requires other technologies for energy utilization
- Requires other technologies for digestate handling
- Proper feeding & system monitoring is required to avoid system downtime
- Proven technology for odor control, GHG reduction and pathogen reduction
Fitec is new to the Newtrient solutions catalog and the U.S. market. Newtrient will continue to work with Fitec to further refine the cost and performance information as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come on line.
