BioStar's Regional Food Waste Digester at Waste-to-Energy plant in San Bernardino, CA.

WHAT WE DO

BioStar uses a century old process called anaerobic digestion to break down the waste in the absence of air. Stored in a large tank or a lagoon, the bacteria in the organic material decomposes and splits apart the organic solids. The primary by-products of the process, ammonia and methane, are captured by BioStar. This methane based biogas, or Renewable Natural Gas, can be used as a drop in fuel (gas) or turned into electricity using generators via a process called Combined Heat and Power.

Our largest plant to date is diverting 85,000 gallons / day of organic food waste from landfills in California. See the featured project below to learn more.

While these projects have tremendous benefits, there is typically still a significant amount of wastewater coming out of the backend of the digester. This is our secret sauce: BioStar’s patented process turns the remaining wastewater into clean, potable water, as well as our patented, SuperSix™ Organic Liquid Fertilizer.

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT

Addressing waste on both a national and global level will be one of the greatest challenges of the next 100-years and BioStar is addressing the issue head on, developing modern day, circular energy plants that leave zero waste behind. Our team of researchers continues experimenting with co-digestion of various feedstocks such as animal manure, food waste, distilled grains and others to better understand the potential for regional solutions that enable landfill diversion for a variety of different industries.

BENEFITS

Energy Definition
We have a landfill problem in the USA. Most landfills are nearing capacity, and permitting new sites is next to impossible.

DIVERT WASTE
FROM LANDFILLS

Energy Definition
Landfill waste puts off a tremendous amount of greenhouse gas emissions. Rather than these gases releasing into the atmosphere, BioStar captures and recycles the emissions, creating renewable energy.

REDUCE GREENHOUSE
GAS EMISSIONS

Energy Definition
Whether you use the biogas as a drop in fuel or convert the biogas to electricity, the process creates renewable energy that can be used to power the plant, or sold into the utility markets.

RENEWABLE
ENERGY

Energy Definition
The USDA estimates that 335+ million tons of “dry matter” waste are produced annually on farms, representing ~ 1/3 of municipal and industrial waste produced every year. This waste has valuable nutrients that BioStar recovers in our process.
