The Waste No Energy® digester operates ideally with the correct organic inputs. We typically use 100-125 tons of high-energy organic waste each day.
Here are some examples of the feedstocks we receive:
- Outdated grocery and bakery goods and food industry waste (corn syrup, sugars, frosting, yogurt, milk, soda, energy drinks, beer/alcohol, fruit juice, ice cream, chocolate and soups)
- Restaurant waste (fats, oils and greases)
- Cheese manufacturing waste (cheese whey)
- Brewery waste (grain mash and liquor slurry)
- Biofuel production byproducts (ethanol syrup and glycerin bottoms)
Appropriate feedstocks include an organic liquid waste stream that has been segregated from any bottles, cans, jars, packaging, etc. and that can be successfully processed for recovery of nutrients and energy through complete mix anaerobic digestion technology. Animal manure, biomass, food waste, cooking oil and grease, grocery and bakery wastes, carbohydrates, brewery wastes, cheese whey, wastes from bio fuel production and paper pulp, are examples of common appropriate feedstock. Other examples of such wastes are fats, oil, greases (FOG’s), DAF float from food processors, grocery food scraps, and byproducts from the ethanol industry such as ethanol syrup.
All feedstocks must be lab tested prior to acceptance to meet specific performance characteristics. Feedstocks will be analyzed for nutrients and energy potential regularly, especially as a new product is being evaluated, to check for quality and compliance. The facility will not accept hazardous waste, human waste, septage, biological waste, or animal remains.
Our facility also receives all shipments indoors, allowing for efficient unloading.
