Organics Processing

Organic material processing generally consists of one or a combination of natural decomposing products such as green waste, food waste, animal manure, etc. Further processing of organic materials from their natural state can create a variety of products, including everything from fertilizing soil amendment for farmers and home gardeners to fuel for cars and trucks.

The organic material is first collected and processed so it can be handled. Then if it is to be turned into fertilizer, the material goes through a process called composting. For multiple days, the material sits in piles and decomposes through a process of aeration and friction. The end result is a compost fertilizer that can now be used to help enrich crops. If the material is used in anaerobic digestion, then it goes through a process that produces a methane gas, which can be collected and used to power buildings and vehicles.

McLanahan’s team of design specialists and engineers can provide a solution to accommodate the complete organic processing system from start to finish. We offer everything from the preprocessing grinders and extruders to the backend of the anaerobic digestion, as well as a nutrient separation and water purifying system, for a complete organic processing solution.
