AB Produce are a vegetable processing company. Their process produces a mixture of water, vegetable peelings, starch and mud as waste - which has to be stored in lagoons. Even with some waste being used as compost on farmland AB Produce required a more cost-effective solution to their waste-management.
An investment in an anaerobic digestion system to produce bio-gas processes the waste to produce low cost fuel - a much more efficient waste solution. Anaerobic digestion is a process by which microorganisms break down organic, biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. The process produces a bio-gas, comprised of methane, carbon dioxide and other, trace gases. This bio-gas can be burnt as fuel in combined heat and power gas engines to produce electricity - or even upgraded to natural gas-quality and fed directly into the gas grid.
JDS Electrical are working to install a new 11KV HV to LV substation, new mains panel small power and LED lighting in the new buildings and mains cables to the gas engines. The contract is expected to take 8 to 12 months.
