Biogenic Carbon Waste Problems

Bradam Solves Problems

Biogenic carbon waste is waste that is derived from biological sources such as plants and animals before they are fossilized. Examples of biogenic carbon waste that the CER™ System processes include:

  • Food waste
  • Wood biomass
  • Digestate from Anaerobic Digestors (AD)
  • Yard waste
  • Animal waste
  • Sewage sludge
  • Dried Distiller’s Grains

Biogenic carbon waste comprises approximately 40% of the waste stream that ends up in landfills. As biogenic carbon waste emits methane – which is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere – biogenic carbon waste poses a significant environmental threat. Our system prevents food and other biogenic carbon waste from ending up in landfills and eliminates methane emissions from it by converting the waste into Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).

Waste is a terrible thing to waste.

Plastic Waste Problems

Plastics have become a ubiquitous environmental issue. With less than 10% of plastics being recycled, there has not been a viable solution to manage the 90% of plastics that either end up in a landfill or the environment. As a result of poor plastic management policies, it is projected that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean by weight than fish!

Plastic comes from petroleum, which is the product of millions of years of decay of once-living organisms. Due to its fossil origin, plastic contains carbon – meaning there is energy within plastic to be recovered. Our CER™ System safely and efficiently processes plastics and converts them into Substitute Natural Gas (SNG) for homes and businesses.

Solid Waste Problems

There are several types of solid waste: Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Industrial and Commercial Solid Saste (ISW), and construction debris. Our CER™ System can process 100% of carbon-based solid waste, which includes everything from diapers and cardboard to mattresses and furniture.

Once the ferrous and non-ferrous metals, glass, cement and other recyclables are sorted out from the solid waste streams, our system converts all remaining material into useable energy. This process has a major impact in diverting up to 100% of the carbon based materials that would typically end up in a landfill.

Water Shortage Problems

Although 70% of the earth is covered with water, less than 1% is fresh water accessible for use. There is no new water being produced; the water we are using today has been around for millions of years.

One of the many valuable outputs from the CER™ System is clean water. The system “unlocks” the moisture within waste while converting the rest of the waste into energy. The water produced by the system comes out clean enough for irrigation or is further processed to be potable.

Waste is a terrible thing to waste.


100% of plastics that are not recycled are converted to energy.
 Every tonne of waste processed produced approximately 300 liters of water.
Every tonne of waste processed produces enough energy to supply 800 homes for a year.
100% of GHG emissions are displaced through RNG production.
