Whether you are running a small single-farm biogas plant or a large operation, making sure it works as optimally as possible is the key to maximizing output and profitability. Yara's Biogas Production Optimizer will help achieve this.
Yara BPO gives bacteria greater access to the carbon sources in the substrate. This accelerates and optimizes the conversion of substrates into biogas. The result is an increased methane concentration in the biogas, and therefore a higher energy content.
It also helps create a part-time anoxic metabolism at the micro scale. This provides slightly higher energy yield to fermentative bacteria than constant anaerobic metabolism.
Alternatively, for the benefit of increased methane production, Yara BPO raises in microscale the oxidation-reduction (redox) potential, shifting competition between sulfate-reducing bacteria, denitrifiers, and methanogenic organisms. The altered microorganism community leads to improved gas quality. Molecular analyzes confirm an increased denitrification, methanogenesis and cellulose degradation by bacterial metabolic processes with simultaneously reduced sulfate reduction (thus lower H2S formation).
Our specialized engineers help biogas plant operators find the best solution based on their business goals and plant parameters (type of substrate, mode of plant operation, temperature range, volumetric loading, etc.).
The Yara Biogas Production Optimizer can be applied to all types of biogas plants, and to all plant configurations as well as to all types of substrates.
