Bekon was founded in 1992 and currently employs around 30 people at home and abroad. The company is a global technology leader in the construction of batch biogas plants for generating energy from waste. The first BEKON system went online in 2003 and has been operating successfully ever since.
The BEKON dry fermentation process currently covers over 40 patents , which are constantly being supplemented by research and development to ensure that the highest levels of biogas production and recovery are achieved.
Bekon Dry Fermentation (Biogas Production)
It has become increasingly important to treat organic material and foodwaste as this material is responsible for significant greenhouse gas emissions.
The Bekon dry fermentation system uses the natural fermentation process within a precisely controlled environment to produce a methane rich biogas that can be used to produce electricity or can be upgraded and injected into the gas network.
Dry fermentation offers a much more robust and contaminant tolerant solution than traditional wet digestion and is much more suited to processing the organic rich fraction from MSW or source segregated food and greenwaste feedstock.
With over 80 plants in operation worldwide, Bekon are one of the market leaders in dry fermentation and hold many patents for this innovative technology.
