Enzymes for biogas from agricultural and industrial residues

Higher yields, feedstock flexibility and a smoother process 

Enzymes for biogas from agricultural and industrial residues

Higher yields, lower feedstock costs 

Our enzymes deliver more efficient degradation of organic material. That means higher biogas yields for your plant. In plants already running at maximum capacity, our solutions can help to lower feedstock costs.

They can both reduce tonnage and allow you to process difficult-to-digest, lower-cost feedstocks. 

Reduced downtime and higher working volume

Our solutions efficiently degrade organic material to improve mixing in your digester. Better mixing helps you avoid 'dead zones' where there is no biological activity. These dead zones increase the risk of process or biological instability. By avoiding them, you can reduce downtime in your plant.

 Avoiding dead zones also improves contact between your substrates and microbial communities meaning higher yields. Better mixing also reduces separation and the resulting risk of crust formation. Hard crusts don't just reduce your working volume. Left unchecked, they can even break your mixers or cause your whole digester to fail. 

Lower operational costs

Lower operational costs

By reducing viscosity, our enzymes can help to lower the operational costs of running mixers, stirrers and pumps. That’s because lower viscosity means lower torque on equipment. That leads to less wear and tear, which in turn means lower maintenance costs.

Also, lower viscosity means less electricity is needed in your process. So, you can sell more to the grid or buy in less.
