Our business is the design, construction and commissioning of large biomethane production facilities – from biogas generated in the anaerobic digestion of organic waste – in Europe. We design biomethane plants that meet the highest technical and safety standards, using a wide variety of technologies and organic waste.

Our activities

Organic waste management:

The biogas and biomethane production process begins with the supply of raw materials. In the case of plants that Biorig has planned to develop, these raw materials are fundamentally composed of waste from the farming activity such as non-hazardous SANDACH waste (animal by-products not suitable for human consumption), among which manure from different livestock (cattle, pigs, poultry, horses, goats or sheep) are a priority.

In addition, waste from agri-food industries or agricultural activities, such as the leftovers from the production of olive oil or wine, as well as from annual harvests, are an important vector. The aim is for the planned plants to become important centres for the recovery of organic waste, solving the problems of by-product management currently faced by the rural world and, more specifically, the primary sector.

What is biomethane?

Biomethane is a renewable fuel that can be injected into the gas grid, obtained from the purification of biogas, which in turn is obtained from the anaerobic digestion of organic waste. It consists mainly of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), in varying proportions depending on the composition of the organic matter of origin.

Biomethane typically contains between 50% and 70% methane, and it is this component that is responsible for its fuel capacity. If biomethane is to be brought on par with natural gas, CO2 and other compounds must be removed to increase the methane content to above 96%.

Compost production:

The production of compost and fertiliser is the last phase of the circular economy process carried out in biogas and biomethane plants, as their main objective is the valorisation of waste. In this sense, once anaerobic digestion has taken place, the final product, called digestate, which has great agrological potential, is treated in our own or third-party composting plants to generate high-quality fertiliser that can be returned to the fields.

Composting is an aerobic biological process, whereby the fermentation of organic waste (in this case organic waste fermented in digesters), together with structuring materials, results in an excellent fertiliser for agriculture. This process involves a complex destruction of organic matter.
