The team has licensed a Cornell technology which is capable of producing 90% methane gas, suitable for use in combustion engines and fuel cells. DGT has a vast value proposition for its buyers and investors. The company would capitalize on compressed natural gas production via pressurized digesters. With government incentives at hand for companies reducing their emissions, as well as reducing waste product, the biogas generation system holds a dual value. The digesters would be able to transform waste product into “green” combustible gas and compost/liquid fertilizer. This adds value to a previously wasteful cost and increases production efficiency. Biomass served 2.8% of total
