Digestate Treatment – Biogas

In the world of organic waste management, digestate treatment emerges as a crucial aspect for environmental and economic sustainability. Biogas plants, by converting organic waste into biogas, generate digestate as a by-product, and its effective treatment is essential to maximize its value and minimize its environmental impact. In this article, we explore the latest innovations in digestate treatment and how Smallops is leading the way towards a more sustainable future.

Digestion Sludge – Digestate, What is it?


Anaerobic digestates, also known as digestate, are byproducts generated during the biogas production process in anaerobic digestion plants. This organic waste still contains valuable nutrients, but if not managed properly, it can become an environmental and economic problem in a biogas plant.

Innovations in Digestate Treatment, Market your Digestate in a Simple Way

Resource Recovery

One of the trends in digestate treatment is resource recovery. Thanks to advances in separation and recovery technologies, it is possible to extract valuable nutrients from digestate, such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and convert them into marketable products, such as high-quality organic fertilizers.

An example is centrifugation is a technique commonly used to separate solids and liquids in digestate. By applying centrifugal force, the solid components, rich in nutrients, are separated from the remaining liquid. These solids can then be processed to obtain high quality organic fertilizers.

Intelligent Data Management

Another key aspect of digestate treatment is intelligent data management. By using advanced sensors and monitoring systems, biogas plants can collect real-time data on the quality and quantity of digestate generated, as well as the performance of treatment processes.

pH and temperature measurement sensors, as well as volatile solids analysis, are an example of technologies that allow constant monitoring of digestate conditions during the treatment process. Additionally, telemetry systems can provide real-time data on digestate production and quality, allowing plant operators to make informed decisions and optimize treatment processes.

Important Aspects to Consider in Digestate Management

In addition to the technological innovations and comprehensive solutions offered by companies like Smallops, there are several important aspects that companies that need to manage their digestates should take into account:

  • Regulatory Compliance: It is essential to comply with local, regional and national legislation and regulations related to the management of organic waste and digestates. This includes issues such as emission limits, water and soil quality, and fertilizer application requirements.
  • Environmental Sustainability: Many companies and organizations are increasingly concerned about their environmental footprint and are looking for solutions that minimize the negative impact on the environment. Proper management of digestates can significantly contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing soil, water and air pollution.
  • Economic Profitability: In addition to meeting regulatory and environmental requirements, companies seek to maximize the economic profitability of their operations. This may include finding ways to recover valuable resources from digestate and convert them into marketable products.
  • Occupational Health and Safety: Digestate management may involve the handling of potentially hazardous materials, so it is important to implement appropriate occupational health and safety measures to protect workers and minimize the risks of accidents or exposure to harmful substances.
  • Integrated Waste Management: Digestate management must be part of a broader organic waste management strategy, which includes collection, treatment and final disposal in an efficient and sustainable manner.

By taking these additional aspects into account, companies that need to manage their digestates can make more informed decisions and develop more effective strategies to optimize their operations and meet their environmental, economic and social objectives.
