Biogas Enzymes Reduce Power Consumption

The web is filled with nutritional guidance for the human digestive systems. Everyone knows that whole grain fiber helps prevent constipation, fatty food slows down the digestion, drinking water is essential and exercise helps keeps everything moving.

A biogas digester is in a certain way comparable to a human digestive system. There are several factors that will hamper an optimized and continuous digestion. For example, the biosolids being fed into the process can be too thick to mix (constipation) or low in pH (bloating). As in any healthy digestive process the biogas is a result of anaerobic breakdown of the organic cells. The symbiosis of specific micro-organisms and enzymes work simultaneously, if the nutrients, minerals, and process conditions are in harmony.

A precise analysis and dosage of the trace elements is the first step for an optimized methane production. The targeted dosage of enzymes and cofactors will improve the biogas exploitation, reduce viscosity with an increase in agitation efficiency and reduction of overall operational maintenance. More importantly the process stability is improved to reduce the time needed to control the biogas operation.

Our expertise lies in the lab evaluation of the substrate with respective supply of the optimized enzyme mix. Our evaluation combines the plant specific feed, operational conditions and deficiencies to give expertise for the specific biogas operations.
