Enzymes for Anaerobic Digestion
Bock UK are delighted to introduce a new enzyme product to the anaerobic digestion industry called OPTIMASH® AD-100 from DuPont.
DuPont™ OPTIMASH® AD-100 is a mix of enzymes designed to improve biogas production during anaerobic digestion (AD). It works by breaking down cellulosic fibres, resulting in sugars that are more suitable for biogas-producing microorganisms.
OPTIMASH® AD-100 is effective at breaking down organic materials that contain cellulosic fibres like those in paper, wastewater sludge, animal and farm wastes. This also includes enabling safe use of non-food feedstock’s such as straw and deep litter muck.
OPTIMASH® AD-100 offers the following benefits to biogas plant operators:
- Increased biogas production
- Decreased feedstock requirements
- Improved biogas quality (methane/carbon dioxide ratio)
- Reduced viscosity of substrate – reduced mixing costs
- Increased fermentation rate; shorter residence time
- Increased process robustness; ability to break down difficult substrates and reduce risk of rafting
