What is methanisation?
Methanization is a process that, like composting, uses bacteria naturally present in bio-waste to reuse it.
Methanisation not only creates digestate (a natural fertilizing material just like manure or domestic compost - avoids the use of chemical fertilizers), but also the natural gas produced by this process (methane) is itself revalorized into energy: gas and green electricity!
Contrary to composting, methanisation has the advantage of allowing the recovery of waste such as meat, blood, carcasses, fish, dairy products or any other animal material that cannot be composted at home (because they attract harmful animals such as rats).
This technique is increasingly used by municipalities and companies. Check with your local town hall to find out if there are collection points near you!
