GE to Highlight Solutions for Turning Waste to Energy at UK AD & Biogas Conference

Jul 05, 2016

TREVOSE, PA.-July 5, 2016-GE (NYSE: GE) will showcase its waste-to-energy technologies, products and services designed to help the food waste industry enhance recovery from its anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities at the UK AD & Biogas conference.

GE will be exhibiting at stand K205 at the UK AD & Biogas conference July 6-7 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, West Midlands. The show brings together the world’s leading technology and product suppliers under one roof. GE will feature the products that optimize biosolids and biowaste AD facilities from the reception floor to renewable energy.

Highlights of GE’s technology portfolio that will be on display at the conference include:

Re:Sep* pretreatment separates packaging, contaminants and grit to generate a clean organic slurry. The Re:Sep process can receive a wide variety of waste streams and separate the organics with high efficiency into a clean organic slurry and a separate reject contamination stream resulting in the perfect feed substrate for AD.

Hydrolysis Pasteurization Digestion achieves high-efficiency conversion of food waste to biogas yielding high biogas yields, stabilized digestate, shorter retention times and lower carbon footprint.

AD technology is designed to recycle biosolids and biowaste into methane and valuable byproducts. GE’s Monsal* AD technologies use bacteria in the absence of oxygen to break down matter to create biogas. The biogas can be combusted or oxidized and used for heating or with a gas engine to produce electricity and heat. It also can be compressed and used as fuel for vehicles or as a fertilizer.

Digestion products-From mixing systems to heat exchanges to sludge treatment, GE’s digestion products work in concert to provide a holistic solution that takes anaerobic treatment to a new level. GE’s digestion products achieve optimal energy balance to maximize system yield and performance.

Jenbacher* gas engines achieve efficient energy conversion for converting biogas into power and heat.
