Extrusion presses to extract the organic fraction from mixed waste

Ashwani‎ Kumar - Vice President, Anaergia

In the United States 54% of refuse ends up in landfill, but this percentage could be drastically reduced by recycling waste or exploiting it for energy purposes. What therefore should be done with mixed waste, when separate waste collection has not been done at source? There are technologies available that could help, for example extrusion presses which, operating at a pressure of 5000 PSI, make it possible to extract organic waste and produce biogas to fuel a cogeneration plant.
