The latest micronutrient technology can boost productivity – and profits – for food waste anaerobic digester (AD) operators. Licensed operators are increasingly treating food waste through ADs for the production of constantly generated renewable energy in the form of biogas, which can either be used on-site to reduce reliance on costly fossil fuels or sold as electricity under Government incentive initiatives like the Feed-In Tariff scheme.

However, it is rare for an AD to have the complete range of nutritional elements present for optimal bacterial growth. Shortages of specific micronutrients, which are critical components of enzyme systems in the bacteria, often occur.

Omex2November2015This can mean that the digester plant and connected system do not run at full efficiency with a consequential loss of performance and output.

OMEX Environmental have formulated Nutromex TEA, a bioavailable micronutrient mix, used in the anaerobic process to boost the availability of essential trace elements and help to improve bacterial performance and increase the methane content of biogas production.

This helps commercial operators to run plants at optimum levels, maximising revenue streams and return on investment through increased profits.
