Converting common wastes into energy and value added materials
Some 60% of waste going to Victorian landfill is organic material, and it’s disposal is a significant cost to many industries. Some companies, however, are successfully diverting this waste into cheap energy and new products.
This two-part workshop will explain different methods for extracting value from common organic wastes through energy (Bio-gas) production, processing for feed and fertiliser, and recovery of high value products including food additives & nutraceuticals.
Introduced Bio-gas technologies, testing waste for Bio-gas potential, and assessing the commercial viability of using Bio-gas for on-site energy generation.
Presented by Dr Jayant Keskar (CRC CARE), who has over 22 years experience in biotechnology, anaerobic digestion and renewable energy, and is an expert in the field of Biogas.
This session presented further options for extracting value from organic waste, including commercially available options for composting, drying and pelletising, as well as a showcase of the research technologies recovering highly valuable food and nutraceutical compounds.
This event was held on Thursday 27 November 2014, at the Bayview on the Park Hotel in Melbourne.
