Landia’s externally mounted biogas digester mixing system in Taiwan
As well as producing biogas and creating top-quality organic fertilizer from biogas residue, the $3M Pushige Biomass Energy Center (49% financed by Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration) will also help reduce the discharge of the unprocessed manure slurry which is high in potentially polluting:
This helps to avoid pollution from livestock wastewater, which would otherwise be discharged into irrigation channels and the Xiuguluan Creek, amounting to almost 110,000 metric tons each year.
In addition, carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by approximately 3,000 metric tons.
Rice farmers are already using the nutrient-rich, organic biogas digestate for their farmland.
The feedback received suggest that they are immediately seeing a vast improvement in their crops, compared to the chemical fertilizers used previously.
