While green waste is generally separately collected from other waste types, a differentiation is still made between fibrous and wet organics. While the fibrous organics are ideal for composting, the wet organics can be used more efficiently in digesters to generate biogas. The Organic Liquefying Press allows the user to extract the liquid fraction from the fibrous organics while optimising its biogas potential. Both fractions are then separately collected and can be further processed.
To separate the green waste, it is fed at the top of the Organic Liquefying Press from from a conveyor. Then, the material is first pre-pressed and then separated under high pressure. The resulting fractions are the wet and fibrous fractions.
