EBI is a company located in the province of Quebec in Canada with the mission to integrate waste management. Great challenges in regards to organic waste management are faced and anaerobic digestion is considered by EBI as an innovative alternative to landfilling. The selection of the feedstock is a key success factor for an anaerobic digestion project. Based on an extended literature review, an investigation of organic waste available to EBI and a multi-criteria analysis, it is recommended to use a mix of food waste, dewatered septic systems sludge, poultry manure, wasted activated sludge, grease trap waste and liquid yeast as input for the anaerobic digester.
