By collecting and converting solid waste into fuel it solves two – environmental and energy - problems at once.
After separating glass and metals from the solid waste, the Ecogensus system can safely convert the remaining waste streams (including organic materials, trash and plastic) into biofuel.
The Ecogensus system is powered by the energy generated from the anaerobic digestion of the above mentioned faecal and agricultural waste.
One of the research studies investigated the potential of converting a combination of human faecal waste and agricultural waste (chicken manure and corn stovers) into energy and fertiliser for the city of Bogura (pop.
Zero waste solutionEelco proposes to include two innovative technologies: the Ecogensus Processing System© and the Despray aerosol recycling system©.
