SeaHold Selected by U.C. Davis Project as Anaerobic Digestion, Biogas and BioMethane

2016 to Present

Davis, California

The California Energy Commission selected a U. C. Davis project for funding under an EPIC Grant Project, on the subject of “Demonstrating the Potential for On-Site Electricity Generation from Food Waste Using Containerized Anaerobic Digestion Units”. SeaHold is a part of the project’s Technical Advisory Committee.

SeaHold believes that creating more biogas projects to meet the expanding volume of organic diversion materials requires flexibility and having more digester scale options make sense. Local sources of organics may not be as easily converted when requiring long delivery trips, smaller scale plants are needed to address stranded waste organics. Having one more viable and proven option is able to assist waste organics conversion to useful fuel and energy. The technology may also prove to be another option for agricultural waste such as dairy manure in California.
