OMEX is the official UK distributor for DSM Biogas. DSM Biogas developed enzyme solutions for biogas application in order to improve the efficiency of fermentation, mainly of fibre rich substrates or more substantial cereal based fibre substrates, in biogas production.
DSM Enzymes solutions include Axiase™ 100, an enzyme applicable to cereal based fiber substrates, for instance rye and triticale which are typical biogas substrates in the UK and MethaPlus® L100 which can be applied to waste water treatment plants to improve substrate conversion (more biogas, less sludge). The effectiveness of these products has been proven by many investigations and case studies, visit DSMs’ website http://dsmbiogas.de/en-US/Case-Report for further information.
MethaPlus® L100 has been successfully used in biogas plants since 2005, making it the best tested enzyme product for biogas plants that has been on the market the longest. Optimum utilization is the key factor in the profitability of a biogas plant. Any improvement in the fermenter biology increases the efficiency and thus the profitability of a biogas plant. This is where MethaPlus® S/L 100 comes into play; its positive effects (higher biogas yield, reduction in viscosity, process stabilization) mean that your plant can run more economically.
Since its' market introduction in the autumn of 2012, numerous biogas plant operators have become convinced of the enzyme compound's effectiveness.
This new enzyme product enables you to intensify the usage of a wide range of cereal based fiber substrates, and consequently increases the cost-effectiveness of your biogas plant.
The key benefits of Axiase™ 100 that make biogas plants more profitable are:
- maximized usage of cereal based fiber substrates in your substrate mix (replace maize silage);
- increased flexibility in substrate management;
- lower viscosity in the digester;
- increased net energy production;
- increased stability of biogas production.
Due to the substantial reduction in viscosity and the enhancement of fluidity, the enzyme compound enables greater substrate flexibility, while simultaneously increasing energy yields. For more on this topic, visit DSMs' website for further information.
