About the Solution:

Nijhuis Water Technology designs and supplies manure and co-digestion systems, the Taurus reactor. Under anaerobic circumstances agriculture wastes and organic substances are digested into biogas and a digestate. The feed into the process could consist of:

  • Manure of animals.
  • Agricultural wastes.
  • Food factory wastes.
  • Co-substrates, like maize, corn, grass and sugar beets.
Depending on the available raw materials, we will design the optimal system. This system can include the following steps: raw material storage, raw material preparation, balancing, digester including mixing system, biogas conditioning and usage, digested solids separation and processing and digestate treatment.
