Dimigas create small digesters for urban areas to turn organic waste into energy and high-quality fertilizers.
The team believes that you should not need to change your habits or be an expert in the field if you wish to live more sustainably. Their mission is to prevent the disuse of organic waste generated in residences and SMEs. Moreover, they aim to lower approximately 40% of the total organic waste sent to landﬁlls which means that most of the fugitive methane emissions generated on these sites would be avoided due to the drastic lower volumes of organic matter sent to ﬁnal disposal.
The technology used for this cause is based on anaerobic digestion which has been in use for decades, however, it has not been fully implemented due to design ﬂaws. Dimigas are working on solving these issues so that organic matter (kitchen waste, garden waste, sewage, etc.) can be effortlessly turned into biogas and high-quality fertilizer. Their ultimate goal is to only ask users to change one habit: to throw organic waste into the digester instead of into the garbage can.
Based on this model, various target groups can benefit from this invention. For instance: restaurants, hotels, schools, residences, farms, municipalities or any other companies that generate organic waste.
