Common issues in anaerobic digesters such as odours, alkalinity depletion, ammonia accumulation, pH imbalances, and excessive total nitrogen can range from minor disturbances to complete shutdown of the plant.
AquaClean™ products are each a broad range of naturally occurring bacteria species which, when applied through our specially designed AD Activator systems, deliver a highly concentrated and diverse mix of bacteria and enzymes to significantly improve bio-hydrolysis, the rate limiting step in AD.
Furthermore, application techniques target enzyme activity towards specific waste such as lignin cellulose, fats and oils to get the most out of the process. Effective bio-hydrolysis also significantly improves the pumping properties of the feedstock and ensures the gas is produced very quickly, increasing the overall capacity of the digester.
For best results, apply AquaClean™ products as part of a hydrolysis step, in advance of the main reactor. The bacteria and enzymes however, can deal with issues at any stage within the system.
AquaClean™ products have been proven to:
Improve hydrolysis - the rate limiting step.
Improve process stability
Stabilise nitrogen and reduce odour
Improve breakdown of cellulosic and hard to digest materials
Increase gas yields
AquaClean™ products are natural, non-pathogenic and with no genetically modified organisms and can be applied direct from the container or prepared on site in a bio-reactor (recommended). Various treatment options are available depending on type of process
