The Conviotec-Container is a multi-chamber fermenter. The substrate (organic substances) is pumped through the fermenter. It passes through the individual chambers and the bacteria produce biogas. This gas can be extracted from every chamber, and can be converted into electricity in a cogeneration unit or used for the production of heat. There is a digestate discharge at the end of the container. The non-salvaged material can be removed here.
It can be used as fertiliser for agriculture. Through sludge outlets on the floor of the container settling sediment contained in the substrate, such as sand or stone, which deposits over time reducing the volume of the container, can be removed.
