Organics Disposal

Challenge with the disposal of organic residues?

In biogas plants, organic substrates are used for generating biogas as the key ingredients for the anaerobic digestion process. The organic substrates have to be free from contaminants such as metal, plastics, wood (lignin) and rocks because plant equipment such as pumps will be damaged and the bacteria in the plant are unable to process these inorganic substances.

The Lethbridge Biogas plant is currently able to process the following categories of organic materials:

  • DSC05198Liquid & solid manures from Intensive Livestock Operations (beef, dairy, hog & poultry etc.)
  • Fats, Oil & Greases (FOG) from slaughterhouses, meat packing plants, canneries, restaurants, food processors, cafeterias & grocery stores
  • Food processing residues (oils seeds, grains, fruit & vegetables, corn, beet, potato, dairy products, alcohol, etc.)
  • Aerobic sludges from non-municipal wastewater treatment & industrial process water
  • Pet food residues
  • Separated kitchen & market residues from food processors, bakeries, pizza parlours, restaurants, cafeterias, grocery stores, hospitals, universities, households
