Yield’s AD system is also the most energy efficient. A fully operating Yield system complete with pre-processing and in-tank decontamination will consume less than 15% of the energy it will generate as a result of the biogas production.
There are many different facility designs and processes for AD facilities. This schematic illustrates the Yield approach to designing a facility. Food waste is accepted in an enclosed reception hall that has negative pressure and the air is recycled using bio filters. Our de-contamination and pre-processing equipment prepares the sludge for pumping to the digesters and then to storage tanks for off site distribution. All digesters and buildings are designed to have less of an impact as possible on the surrounding environment.
