About Norsk Biogass
Norsk Biogass AS supplies pre-treatment technology to prepare food waste and organic residue from existing waste streams for use in renewable energy production.
The company’s patented core technology, BioSep®, enables users to automate the removal of packaging from food products and transport packaging from food waste. The technology also efficiently removes plastic and other alien substances from source-separated food waste collected from households. BioSep® technology makes it possible to use organic residue from existing waste streams to generate renewable energy.
Food waste is a major problem with serious environmental consequences if it is not treated properly. On the other hand, as a raw material for biogas production, organic waste is a valuable energy resource. Unfortunately, large quantities of organic material currently go to waste in incinerators in Norway and worldwide, in the absence of efficient pre-treatment technology.
