Anatis is an industrial package-builder made up of about ten motivated shareholders, whose ambition is to become a leader in Belgium for small and medium power agricultural biomethanation units (from 10 electrical kilowatts for small units up to between 100 and 1,000 electrical kilowatts for medium-sized units). The objective is to offer standardized installations of professional quality , irrespective of the power supplied. In addition, Anatis accompanies operators throughout the process: from preparing files, and commissioning installations, through to normal operation, it offers them both essential advice and monitoring for the different parameters that guarantee permanent trouble-free operation. This is what makes Anatis different from other entrepreneurs.

Anatis makes everybody’s dream come true: no longer having to depend on fossil energy and no longer being haunted by its perpetually increasing costs. Anatis offers every farmer, every industrialist and every urban district the possibility of becoming as autonomous as possible for their electricity and heating requirements. Biomethanation offers an energy source that is sure, reliable and, above all, independent of weather conditions 365 days a year!

BIOMETHANATION


This is a natural process that produces methane by bacterial action. Bacteria transform organic matter in an anaerobic atmosphere (no air, no oxygen) by the combined action of several types of micro-organism, which act in 3 main phases.

The conditions needed for anaerobic digestion are :
  • Anaerobiosis (absence of air)
  • Adequate temperature conditions: approximately 37°C
  • A pH of between 6.6 and 7.6
  • A C/N ratio (carbon/nitrogen ratio) of between 15 and 30.
If these conditions are met we shall see biogas being produced, mainly comprised of methane (60% CH4, 40% CO2) which, in this case, is non-fossil fuel. The gas is then transformed via a cogeneration motor, into electricity and heat. In parallel to this supply of energy, digestate is also produced for use in agriculture as high value fertilizer. Besides these qualities, which enable it to replace normal fertilizer very favourably, the main benefit of digestate is that it is odourless.

ACHIEVEMENTS

Possessing all the technologies required for treating agricultural waste (manure, slurry, etc), Anatis is studying several projects at present, with outputs from 10 to over 400 electrical kilowatts. At the Libramont agricultural fair, this July (24th - 27th), it will be presenting and commercializing a low-power industrial installation of agricultural biomethanation for treating slurry. Come and see it. Come and buy it (special 2016 Libramont fair conditions!)
