Organics Collection, Separation, and Processing


Organic waste conversion is quickly emerging as the leading technology for waste reuse and energy harvesting, and as such, many organizations are faced with the challenge of selecting the best collection, separation, and processing for their organization. Join Ernest Ruckert III, PE for the third session in our 5-Session Organics Management Master Class Series exploring the organic waste collection, separation, and processing technologies and systems available to you, and how to choose the best technology and systems for your organization.

In this webcast, we’ll explore the available organic waste collection, separation, and processing technologies and systems, key elements, applications, and current implementations. Join Ruckert as he opens our discussion with an overview of organic waste types, terminology, classification, and definition. Building upon this foundation, we’ll explore organic waste pre- and post-collection separation and storage equipment and systems (including at point of generation, at a central processing facility, and off-site options), and the factors influencing successful selection (e.g., the generator, compatibility with existing recycling programs and collection operations, collection equipment, organics processing technology, economics, and end use processed materials). Additionally, Ruckert will discuss the available collection and transport equipment options (new and converted), their current applications, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.  Finally, we will discuss the many organic waste processing technologies and systems available for processing and recovery of energy, and the current application and success of these based on real-world case studies.
