The BioUrja is an on-site system for food production facilities that converts biodegradable waste into clean biogas.
The BioUrja is a decentralized organic waste disposal and biogas production system. It can be installed in smaller spaces than conventional biogas systems, with units that have a capacity as low 100 kg per day. The waste conversion happens via an anaerobic digestion process that utilizes water already contained within the biomass, thus eliminating the need for additional water. The biogas can power stoves for cooking and the by-product can be used as fertilizer. The system provides 1.5 to 2 times greater biogas generation efficiency compared to conventional systems, with a payback period of two to three years, according to the company.
By addressing space and water constraints, as well as the need for hygiene and odor control, the system is aimed at small-to-mid-sized commercial establishments such as restaurants. In order to ensure that the system is functional at all times, it has a remote monitoring system that constantly tracks operational parameters.
