Reliable weighing system for a consistent input mix for anaerobic digestion
The organic fraction of municipal solid organic waste (MSBW) is treated in dedicated plants through specific processes
The organic fraction of municipal solid organic waste (MSBW) is treated in dedicated plants through two processes: anaerobic digestion and composting, obtaining respectively biogas and compost.
However, given the heterogeneous composition of the incoming waste, and due to practical difficulties in correctly sorting it before reaching the plant, a pre-treatment phase is required to obtain quality end products.
This process is currently carried out by an automatic overhead crane, to then be mixed with the green waste (all waste from agriculture) and obtain the final mix to be fed into the digesters.
A2A is therefore looking for new weighing systems for the green and organic fraction to understand the efficiency of the separation line and hence the quality of the incoming raw material to obtain a homogeneous and quality feed material, improving the final biogas and compost.
This Theoretical Challenge requires only a written proposal.
