Quantalux and Michigan State to Develop Next Generation Energy Technology

Michigan State University and Quantalux LLC have been awarded a grant from the Michigan Department of Economic Labor and Development (DELEG) to analyze the advantages of operating anaerobic digesters at thermophilic temperatures. Anaerobic digesters are processing systems that digest organic waste into more eco-friendly products. A valuable byproduct of the digestion process is biogas, which is nearly 70% methane. Digester technology is growing as farmers and food producers seek to responsibly manage the organic waste from their operations.

If thermal stability can be assured, thermophilic digestion will show higher biogas production as well as the elimination of pathogens from the digested material.
