Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion.
Biogas facilities play a vital role in the development of the bio-economy where wastes are transformed into high value products and chemical building blocks, fuels, and provide power and heat.
From linear to circular economy
The linear economy may be summarized as follows:
developed areas expand, both in absolute and relative terms,
the linear economy will move towards constraint of supply of
materials, including food. This may lead to economic hardship,
human suffering and conflict (Sariatli, 2017).
A circular economy is restorative and regenerative
by design, and aims to keep products, components, and
materials at their highest utility and value, at all times. The
concept distinguishes between technical and biological cycles
(Ellen McArthur foundation, 2015).
Waste Treatment Benefits
Bio-based economies can be defined as: “technological developments
that lead to a significant replacement of fossil fuels by biomass in the production of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, materials, transportation
fuels, electricity and heat” (Sariatli, 2017).
