We have knowhow and IP pertaining to specific technologies that sit at the corner stone of our practical delivery of zero waste solutions.

Each technology is to ensure flexibility and capability for best fit into fully integrated feedback systems

Anaerobic Digestion (AD)

Anaerobic Digestion is the natural process of breaking down organic matter into various products, in the absence of oxygen. By this way, organic waste can be converted into products that form suitable feedstocks for other processes, including, but not limited to: biogas, liquid fuels, methane, hydrogen, organic fertilisers or even vitamins.

IGS has developed a few simple low cost AD enhancements that, for example, use carefully selected enzymes and novel mixing processes that result in a significantly shorter hydraulic retention time (the time organic matter resides in the reactor) from typically 30 to 60 days to just a few hours. This immense HRT improvement is further coupled with significant increases in yield and productivity of methane production from better feedstock utilisation.

IGS advanced AD (AAD) is not only scalable, and has been demonstrated in both small and large scale, but also directly benefits from the efficiency of design, operation and logistics of the AAD plant, which permits exemplary investment efficiency, and delivers against multiple Sustainable Development Goals .

Additionally, IP extends across the development and interaction of the following:

  • Photobioreactors
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Wind turbines
  • Photovoltaics
  • Thermoelectric Generators
  • Living machines
  • Absorption chillers
  • Condensation systems
  • Algae systems
  • Heat pumps and exchangers
  • Water turbines
  • and many more
