Storage of biomass in biotank
The biomass is transported into a biotank for storage. The biotank can be placed wherever it suits the building providing many storage options. It can stand close to the kitchen but also in a basement or on the first floor if needed. In the case of new construction there is also the possibility of burying the tank and thereby save expensive square meters inside the building.
The biotank is available in different sizes depending on the needs of the location, and can be adapted to the space and amount of food waste. The tanks are available in standard models down to 2 m³, but there is also the possibility to specially produce a tank which fits perfectly with the surroundings. BioTrans Nordic collaborates with Denmark’s leading plastic tank manufacturer when a biotank is to be custom made.

As the employee never comes into direct contact with the biotank it is a hygienic alternative to, among other things, composting food waste. The tank is also odourless as it is either connected to the existing vent, or a specially developed biofilter is added which prevents odours.
The tank is cleaned as needed, and it is possible to install sprinklers which makes the cleaning even easier.
The process continues with a beneficial collection scheme.
