Developed by IKOS, a procedure of methanisation of household waste in storage, coupled by a mecano biological sorting, allows obtaining a high optimum recovery of 70 % of the entering tonnage.
The methanisation of waste is a biological procedure of degradation of organic material by micro-organisms. It expresses itself as an alternate solution to incineration and to storage, for limited treatment costs, in meeting easily the local recommendations.
IKOS has two units of methanisation of household waste in the north-west of France. Every unit processes an annual volume of 90 000 tonnes.
The procedure IKOS is protected by the patent n° 0010358 filed with the INPI. And the transfer centers and sorting centers are certified ISO 14001 and 9001.
