Fimuskraft Biogas Plant (FKBP): a revolutionary and cost-effective biotechnological method to treat and valorise biowaste

Objective

Anaerobic digestion (AD) for the treatment of organic wastes has been hailed as a green and sustainable technology. However, AD adoption is still hindered by various limitations. E.g. AD plants are applied for centralised waste management with production of pathogenic and low quality digestates, usually landfilled, leading to no waste valorisation. AD plants produce biogas of low yield and energetic potential. In addition, they are significant capital investments with a long payback. To solve these pains, FimusKraft have developed the FKBP, a system which elegantly combines (a) bio-gas fermentation with an (b) innovative biowaste enzymatic pre-handling process and (c) microturbine with gas analysis and control system. The FKBP is compact and modular and able to simultaneously treat various types of biowaste to produce electricity, heat and high quality ecological organic fertilizer. The FKBP is the first biogas plant able to produce higher energetic biogas (up to 97% CH4/H2 mix).
