Solutions for organic waste from companies and public organizations
Today's society generates waste at a rate far greater than its ability to make it disappear or integrate it back into natural cycles.
Within this large amount of waste that we accumulate, organic matter occupies a prominent place. This is because its composition is the basis of food for many living beings that maintain the balance of ecosystems.
Organic waste is waste that can degrade naturally through the action of biological processes, such as plant or animal waste. Depending on their origin, they are classified as agricultural waste, livestock waste, agri-food waste (derived from food production) and municipal waste.
Sometimes, this organic matter is discarded and abandoned, and its lack of treatment leads to a serious environmental impact that must be corrected or minimized. Therefore, in line with the new European directive (2008/98/CE), we work to promote and prioritize the recovery and recycling of this waste over disposal and isolation. Our objective is to obtain products with the necessary quality to be able to substitute different raw materials.
How is the treatment of organic waste carried out?
Organic wastes can be used to produce animal feed, generate renewable energy or organic fertilizers for agricultural crops.
At ProCycla we help our customers to make the most of their organic waste and give them value with sustainable solutions such as composting, biogas production or the use of biofiltration (biological filters).
Composting transforms waste into compost through natural decomposition processes involving oxygen and specific microorganisms. The resulting product provides the soil with nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and other minerals.
On the other hand, through anaerobic digestion or fermentation, waste can be transformed into biogas (a mixture of methane, carbon dioxide and other gases). This can be used to generate electricity, thermal energy or biofuel. The liquid part obtained during biogas production can also be used to obtain high quality compost.
ProCycla has experience in engineering and technical aspects of waste treatment in the agricultural sector and a broad knowledge of the legislative framework. This allows us to advise companies in the choice of the best solution taking into account their resources and sector of activity.
The environmental impact of waste generated in sectors such as the agri-food industry often also results in the production of large quantities of wastewater with high organic load, nutrients and suspended solids.
The direct discharge of this wastewater into urban sewage networks usually causes problems in the operation of wastewater treatment plants. For this reason, their treatment is usually required at the facilities that generate them, which are subject to the corresponding control and regulation by the competent administrations, which establish the pertinent authorizations.
Our team has experience in designing solutions for the degradation of liquid contaminants such as worm filters. This is a simple and efficient technology that does not require chemicals or complex equipment for its operation.
We treat pollutant gases using specialized biofilters based on specific bacterial consortia that we isolate and cultivate in a laboratory.
In gas biofiltration, microorganisms are responsible for the biological degradation of volatile pollutants present in contaminated air.
For proper gas treatment, we first identify the gas component to be removed (e.g. hydrogen sulfide) and select the relevant biofilters, i.e. biological filters that act in several stages until the pollutant is completely removed.
Biofilters are a more economical, practical and smaller solution compared to other conventional systems.
