The Bio-QZ:   Optimum treatment of substrates

Many potential applications for an optimum result

Whether it is processing packaged food, organic waste, slaughterhouse and catering waste, or energy crops like corn and grass silage, rye whole crop silage or corn-cob mix, the Bio-QZ's versatility is what makes it so valuable. The Bio-QZ treats grass clippings, which are otherwise difficult to handle, as well as cow, horse, and poultry manure quickly and effectively.

Co-fermenter plants

Co-fermenter plants profit especially from the Bio-QZs versatility and robust mode of operation. Packaging is removed, and even the pieces of metal that are often found in organic waste bins are no problem for the cross-flow shredder.

  • Fruit and vegetables that have passed their sell-by date
  • Packaged food
  • Organic waste bins/kitchen waste from households
  • Slaughterhouse waste

Suitable separation technology, such as metal separators, drum and star screens, or screw presses separate packaging, metals, and other contaminants. The organic waste lands in the fermenter, while the other materials are removed from the process without organic material adhering to them.

Renewable energy plants

In agricultural plants, different ingoing substrates can be fed to the Bio-QZ:

  • Corn silage/grass silage
  • Rye whole crop silage
  • Sugar beets
  • Oil radish
  • Beetroot
  • Straw
  • Cattle, horse and chicken manure

The ingoing substances are fed in batches through a feed funnel to the Bio-QZ. The homogeneous substrate can then be brought directly into a hydrolysis pit or through bio-mixing pumps and other feed systems to the fermenters.
