Anaerobic Digestion is a biochemical process during which complex organic matter is decomposed in absence of oxygen,by various types of anaerobic microorganisms.The process is similar to many situations found in nature as in the stomach of ruminants such as cows.

In a Biocng installation, the outcome of the Anaerobic Digestion process is the Biocng and the digestate.If the feedstock for Anaerobic Digestion is a homogeneous mixture of than one feedstock types such as animal slurries and organic wastes from food processing factories, it is known as "co-digestion" and is the most commom Biocng application today.

Feedstock For Anaerobic Digestion

Various biomass types can be used as feedstock for substrates for the production of Biocng from Anaerobic Digestion.

Animal manure and slurry.

Agricultural residue and by-products such as horticulture, fruit, vegetables.

Digestible organic wastes from food and agro industries of vegetable and animal origin, wastes from sugar processing, molasses preparation and fermentation, cereals, edible oils, cocoa, tea and tobacco preparation and processing, baking and confectionary industry, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Dedicated energy crops such as maize, corn etc.

Organic fraction of municipal waste of vegetable and animal origin, household waste and similar commercial, industrial and institutional wastes and waste from catering.

Sewage sludge, off-site waste from water treatment plants.

Wastes from wood processing, furniture pulp, paper and cardboard production and processing.

Wastes from the leather and textile industries.

Garden and park wastes.
