Over the last decade, renewable energy produced through Anaerobic Digestion has grown dramatically in the U.S.  Anaerobic Digestion is a process where microorganisms break down organic material in the absence of oxygen creating Biogas. The Biogas can then be used to generate electricity, heat and motor vehicle fuel.  In addition, the by-product of the anaerobic digestion process produces a nutrient rich fertilizer.

At Sage, we have worked with digester operations across the U.S. sourcing and supplying the organic waste materials that provide the feed-stock for their digesters.  Our staff will help you determine the feasibility of using your organic waste material in an anaerobic digestion application.  Once approved, we will match your wastes with available digester operations in your market area.  We then negotiate supply contracts with the digester owners to ensure long term acceptance of your organic wastes.  And finally, we coordinate the collection, transportation and delivery of your waste to the digester site.

We can also help you evaluate the option of building your own on-site micro digester to create power for your own needs.  Often excess power greated at your site can be sold back to the grid.

Utilizing anaerobic digestion applications for your organic wastes can save thousands in disposal fees and in some cases, create revenue streams from your wastes.
