Implementation Stories

Anaerobic bio-digester to proceed organic waste by ENWISE
Implemented by Auchan in Shanghai (China) in 2017

The Auchan Supermarket in Shanghai, with over 80% of the non-recycled wastes produced being organic, wanted to transform this waste locally into renewable energy and fertilizer. Before using the solution, those waste were landfilled and incinerated. In 2017, They implemented a digester system – the IBIS module – to process between 1.77 and 1.5 ton of waste per day. The gas produced by the unit is now directly used to produce hot water for the supermarket, reducing the supermarket energy bill.


Saving $50k per year of waste disposal fee & $43k of energy used for hot water, roi is approx. 3.5 years


The environmental benefits

  • 1 ton food waste can be transformed into 160m3 of biogas with Enwise dry AD technology,160m3 of biogas can be transformed into 250kwh electricity or 12ton of 60 degrees hot water
  • The land usgae of Enwise dry anearobic digestor is 70% smaller than the traditional web anaerobic digestor
  • The electricity usage at 15kwh/ton and water usage is only at 0.05m3/ton of organic waste to proceed
  • - 705 kg eq CO2 per ton of waste processed (for a supermarket)
  • 96% of waste volume reduction on-site, gain 4% of fertilizer after the digestion process (20days)

The Financial benefits

  • Save up to 50% of public waste disposal and treatment cost
  • Generate 260kwh/ton electricity or 12ton of 60 degrees hot water while processing 1 ton of food waste
  • Less than 4 years of payback time
