GTI to Help Fruit Processor Collect Biogas from Anaerobic Digestion

Geomembrane Technologies Inc. (GTI) is pleased to have been contracted for a cover project at a large fruit processing plant located in Pennsylvania, USA.

GTI’s gas collection cover has been chosen for the fruit processing facility’s new anaerobic digester. The anaerobic digestion process naturally produces biogas, which the cover will capture. In order to increase the amount of biogas, food waste will be trucked in from two other plants. Collectively, the biogas will be utilized in a generator to produce power, reducing the plant’s fuel consumption.

By collecting biogas with GTI’s gastight cover, the fruit processor is also demonstrating environmental stewardship by preventing harmful greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere. The cover will also help minimize odors resulting from wastewater treatment.
