The AgWave project will demonstrate Ashleigh Environmentals disruptive microwave treatment technology for the agro-food biogas market. A modular bolt-on system for new or existing anaerobic digestion (AD) plants, Biowave™ increases biogas production by up to 40% and reduces AD reaction times. The technology target market is global agro-food producers (Dairy processing, Meat Processing, Farmers, Brewing/Distilling) who face increasing pressure to significantly reduce their carbon emissions and transform organic by-products such as manures, bioliquids and biomass into renewable energy in the form of biogas. The project will deliver extensive software and process optimisation features to the existing large scale demonstration unit. Microwaves have traditionally been used in the chemical and pharma industry and now offer an exciting application in the valorisation of agro-food related waste streams.
