Digestate is the digestion by-product, which is separated into nutrient-rich and pathogen-free soil amendment. GrowTEC utilizes the digestate on the farm and reduces the synthetic fertilizer requirement.
Agreements in principle are in place with Gouw Quality Onions, KCL Cattle Co, Kasko Cattle Company to supply feedstock (organic waste) for the anaerobic digester. GrowTEC is in discussion with the towns of Coaldale, and Taber, and waste collectors to explore the opportunity of diverting organic municipal waste from landfill disposal.
The anaerobic digester powers a cogenerating unit that utilizes the biogas produced at a capacity of 633KW of continuous electrical power. This renewable power will initially be marketed and sold through Alberta Electrical Systems Operator (AESO).
Carbon capture and management is becoming a global industry and the GrowTEC biogas facility will have over 10,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent offsets for sale annually.
