QuickQUBE can enable your business to broadcast its sustainability credentials and could play a vital role in fulfilling the UK's energy supply without relying on expensive and unsustainable fossil fuels. Its carbon neutral, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and reduces the need for artificial fertilizers. AD is now recognised by the government as the most efficient method for the sustainable management of food waste and has a dramatic impact in reducing greenhouse gases and carbon emissions.
The digesters can be utilised in so many different ways. Unlike solar and wind they do not rely on the elements and so long as you keep feeding them will run 24/7.
The modules were initially built for containerised use in war zones but QUBE Renewables have now redesigned the digesters so they can be viable to the smaller clients. Average payback on a unit is between 5 - 7 years.
To see if your business could benefit from micro AD please complete our initial assessment:
Below are just a few examples of who could benefit from installing a unit:
Ideal for breweries looking to save money on waste and sewage costs; yeast waste, spent grain and barrel wash liquid can be be digested to produce energy.
Perfect for farmers ( arable, dairy and livestock) looking for waste solutions for manure and slurries. Mix with silage and other crops to produce your own energy and in the process sanitize the manure so it can be spread on the land as an organic fertilizer. This produces a better and cleaner bi product than the raw manure before it has gone through the digestion process.
Instead of paying for the disposal of food waste, put through a digester and supplement your electric and heating at the same time.
Most domestic, commercial and industrial food waste ends up in landfill where it rots giving off methane. A report for WRAP by independent consultants found AD is the optimum and most efficient method of dealing with food waste.
In Scotland the government has banned food waste to landfill and it is expected to follow suit in England. Greater use of renewable technology such as AD will dramatically reduce both the UK's independence on fossil fuels, including fracking and reduce the country's carbon emissions.
Recycle horse manure through a QuickQUBE digester and produce an organic fertilizer at the end of the process. Sanitise your waste and create a biogas for electric and heating.
Golf courses could utilise food, bar waste and grass cuttings (silage)
By co digesting cheese whey with the right feedstock this can be put through a digester, reducing disposal costs. Produce your own electric and heating to generate energy and reduce your demand on the utility companies.
