Biogas generation enhancement for anaerobic pretreatment systems
Novozymes offers improved microbial technologies to improve biogas production and the treatment efficiency of anaerobic wastewater pretreatment systems.
Biogas is a source of renewable energy and can be used as a heat source or converted into electricity. Biogas use can qualify for carbon credits and be traded on numerous credit exchanges. It is also a sustainable business practice that sends a strong corporate message and generates a return on investment. Novozymes offers improved microbial technologies to improve biogas production and the treatment efficiency of anaerobic wastewater pretreatment systems.
How can bioaugmentation support biogas production
Bioaugmentation can increase the COD removal efficiency of the system and increase biogas production. If the generated biogas is recovered and used within the plant, increased biogas production can further off-set natural gas costs. By removing COD more efficiently in the low energy consuming anaerobic system, downstream aerated systems require less power to remove the remaining organic load.
BG Max® 3000 – Biogas generation enhancement for anaerobic pretreatment systems in the food and beverage industry
Industrial plants with high organic loads are more frequently turning to anaerobic treatment. Not only do the plants require less energy and generate less sludge, they are also a prime source for biogas generation. Anaerobic wastewater systems, in particular, are designed to treat high-strength waste streams but are very sensitive to fluctuations in loading, changes in wastewater composition, or changes in the operating conditions. BG Max® 3000 is a unique biogas production product designed to maximize the performance of various anaerobic treatment unitsand helps overcome these deficiencies and enhance system performance.
BG Max® 5005/5105/5205 - Pretreatment of agricultural waste for biogas production
Novozymes’ enzymes target a broad array of recalcitrant substrates, ideally as a pre-treatment before entering the digester. Benefits include increased biogas production improved biogas yield, improved digester mixing, reduction of digester viscosity, and faster digester turnover time.
