Food Waste Pre-treatment Systems

Agrivert is the market leader in the design and build of food waste pre-treatment plants. Where existing organics facilities have spare AD capacity, food waste can enhance energy yield and revenues whilst providing a local service to the community.

The biggest barrier to the successful digestion of food waste is the effective depackaging and pre-treatment of the incoming materials; food waste is often variable in consistency and typically contained in primary and secondary packaging.

We have a proven and robust front-end solution to effectively remove packaging and other contamination to overcome this challenge.

Agrivert's 14 stage technology solution

The Agrivert design is drawn from our extensive on-the-ground experience of operating our own food waste AD facilities. Having designed, built and then operated our AD plants for over 7 years, we have developed a robust and successful system that allows trouble-free pre-treatment and onward successful digestion.

The core principles are:
• Minimised waiting time for delivery trucks
• A clean reception building
• Efficient odour control
• Maximised contaminant removal
• Maximised substrate dry solids
• Homogenous feedstock at maximum calorific value
