Description of a digestion plant for biowaste and kitchen waste

Digestion plants for biowaste and kitchen waste are usually implemented on a large industrial scale. Biowaste is separately collected organic waste generated by households. The contents of organic waste collection bins, into which kitchen and garden waste from private households is placed, varies depending on the time of year. Kitchen waste mainly originates from restaurants, hotels, canteens and other facilities with commercial kitchens. Thanks to increased and stringent hygiene regulations, this waste, which in the past was primarily used as pig feed, is now utilised in biogas plants.
