EUCOlino – Small-Scale Digester
“We’re very excited to see this portable technology in the North American market. The EUCOlino caught our eye because it’s truly a plug-and-play unit that can be located near the source of the feedstocks. Its portability eases the challenges of permitting as well.” – Chief Environmental and Sustainability Officer at Cedar Grove Composting, Jerry Bartlett
Compact and small-scale, the EUCOlino anaerobic digester uses organic waste to create renewable energy and by-products at operations with limited amounts of biomass or smaller footprints.The system typically processes ~2,000 – 6,000 tons of organics per year, depending on project specifics.
System components include: digester unit(s) with mixer(s), technology container with CHP, pumps, desulfurization, mixer motor and plant controls, feeder for solid substrates (optional) and pre-digestion separator to thicken the feedstock to a higher solids content (optional).
EUCOlino is pre-manufactured and shipped from the supplier to arrive on site as a complete, pre-assembled containerized unit.
Advantages of EUCOlino
Extreme feedstock versatility and small size make EUCOlino ideal for a versatile range of waste operations, including:
Wastewater treatment plants
Easy installation and startup: EUCOlino is pre-manufactured, tested for safety and ready to operate upon delivery
Small footprint (slightly larger than a shipping container)
Flexible choice of feedstock
Well-proven EUCO technology, continuously improved since 1995
Profitability through: lower investment costs, lower costs for input materials, energy recovery
Safety and Plant Monitoring
All BIOFerm™ biogas systems are constructed with the highest degree of safety in mind. Standard safety installments include: fire and explosion protection, pollution control, ventilation, biofilters, noise prevention, ground water certification, and lightning deterrents.
All functions of the plant are monitored through the automated plant control system. The software continuously keeps a log of all data points and displays an easy-to-read plant schematic. This allows the operator to oversee the plant operation, biogas production and possible malfunctions.
Continuous monitoring of conditions inside the digester is an integral safety measure. By checking and evaluating aspects such as methane, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide levels, a plant operator is instantly alerted if a problem arises. Plants can be shut down via automated controls so that any irregularity can be fixed.
