An engineering company specialising in the scientific bio-degradation of waste has formed a partnership with UNTHA shredding technology, to roll out a sophisticated aerobic digestion solution for a selection of mixed waste streams.

Bath-headquartered Advetec has treated a variety of waste and effluent, since it was established in 2000. But keen to develop a more homogenous product for optimal digestion rates, the business reached out to UNTHA to explore the capabilities of its four-shaft shredding system.

Municipal waste shredding trials led Advetec to invest in two UNTHA RS30s, which were shipped to the Caribbean and USA to process materials down to a defined <50mm specification. But as dialogue unfolded, it became apparent that UNTHA could play an integral pre-treatment role in Advetec’s turnkey XO aerobic digestion solutions, moving forward.

Governments around the world are seeking to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the fight against climate change, to reduce waste to landfill, and to increase their utilisation of renewable energy in compliance with international agreements. Consequently, in many countries, subsidies have been made available to encourage the growth of the biogas sector.

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) a third of global power capacity is now based on renewable energy, and nearly two-thirds of all new power generation capacity added in 2018 was from renewables. Much of the recent growth was provided by solar and wind energy, but global bioenergy capacity has roughly trebled in the last 10 years.
