TechConnect Innovation Program

High-value chemicals from any biodegradable waste or organic feedstock

Earth Energy Renewables, TX, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

In typical anaerobic digestion (AD), microorganisms convert biodegradable materials into well-known biogas. Organic acids are intermediates in this bioconversion process. Such organic acids are >15X more valuable than biogas. Our technology inhibits biogas in AD to retain these valuable acids and then efficiently extracts and fractionates them for marketing.

Primary Application Area: Environmental, Water & Waste

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6
