Biotel - Compact Modular Plant
The plants’ compact modular design means they can be engineered to manage between 5 - 200 tonnes of material per day, operating as stand alone regional plants or integrated into existing operations, close to the source of waste arisings. They can be sited in confined urban spaces or in close proximity to food manufacturing operations, without risk of odour, airborne bio-contamination or noise emission. Given its low energy requirement and heat capture efficiency, the Biotel process is an exemplary solution for a low carbon economy.
- More efficient and reliable than composting.
- Quicker, sturdier and less capital intensive than anaerobic digestion.
- Cheaper and greener than incineration or landfill
Its benefits include:
- Large quantities of mixed organic wastes, including Category 3 ABP are converted to end organic product in 36 hours.
- Pathogen kill is guaranteed in all output product manufactured, hence eliminating spread of disease.
- The process fully complies with Animal By-products Amendment Order 2003, C1774/2002 and US EPA503 Regulations.
- Plants can be designed to scale, dependent on waste material arisings.
- Site size required for significant tonnage throughput is small.
- Systems up to 20tpd are modular skid mounted for fast deployment on small sites.
- Biotel can be supplied as packaged unit for stand alone operation for operation in remote areas.
- Plant capital cost is low, development and installation time frames are short.
- Energy requirements and operational costs are low.
- The process is contained, meaning there are no odour emissions and no airborne disease transmission or vermin risks.
- The process has a small carbon footprint and low environmental impact.
- Uniform high quality products are manufactured to pre-determined specifications.
The Biotel process can manage a wide range of organic waste materials, including:
- Abattoir Biowastes – Category 3 ABP material and bloods
- Municipal solid waste - organic element
- Vegetable & fruit processing wastes
- Palm oil process residues and effluents
- Food industry wastes (raw and cooked)
- Organic residues from food wholesale or retail, including time expired products
- Cheese, whey & other dairy products
- Bakery & brewing wastes
- Fish processing waste, including offal
- Animal manures & chicken litter
- Sewage & waste water treatment sludges
- Paper industry sludges
- Seaweed residues and algae
Prior to accepting an organic waste stream a Biowaste Characterisation and Product Reuse Test (BCPR) is undertaken - a detailed feasibility study, which includes total analysis and characterisation of the organic residues generated by the potential client.
