Since 1986, Aikan A/S has been developing methods to manage resources. The Aikan Technology, which the company has developed, can create value from household waste and other biological residual fractions.
The Aikan Technology is able to integrate anaerobic digestion and in-vessel composting into a single workflow. By using this technology, household waste and other biological residual fractions can be turned into valuable products such as biogas and nutritious declared composts. The biogas is used for generating electricity and heat while the compost is able to replace imported fertilizers.
