PA 14: Separation of food waste from residual waste
In Pilot Action 14 a concept will be developed and tested, in which organic compounds are solved out from residual waste and used as substrate in waste water treatment plants for biogas production. According to the carried out feasibility study up to 4 Mio m3 Biogas could be gained out of this material. In order to separate organics from residual waste an additional aggregate has to be defined (by a feasibility study) and installed in the running waste sorting plant in Innsbruck.
Aim of this pilot action
… is to use organic (food) waste from residual waste locally for energy production instead of burning them as part of residual waste. In the graphic underneath you can see the procedure of the dry separation, that will be implemented in this pilot action.

According to results from feasibility study the new aggregates the technical realisation / integration into the plant will be proved. Afterwards bidding will be carried out and aggregates bought. The test run will start in May 2019.
