Omex trace element additives for improved biogas production


With anaerobic digestion becoming increasingly popular, ensuring that biogas systems perform to maximum capacity is a crucial consideration.

To meet this need, Omex Environmental introduce their range of micronutrient supplements to ensure that anaerobic plants are supplied with all the necessary trace elements needed for successful bacterial growth and function.

It is rare for anaerobic digester systems 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. This can mean that the digester plant does not run at full efficiency with a consequential loss of performance and output.

The Nutromex range of trace element additives (TEA) provide customised solutions to meet the individual micronutrient needs of specific anaerobic systems and operational requirements.  Before prescribing the appropriate TEA dosage, Omex will assess a plant’s needs by laboratory analysis of influent and effluent flows. It will then produce a tailor-made TEA solution in a form that is fully bioavailable in anaerobic conditions.

Nutromex TEA is the latest in a range of safe-to-use bio available micronutrient supplements available from Omex created to help get more from your investment in anaerobic digesters.

Omex Environmental will be at UK AD & Biogas 2013, 3-4 July at Birmingham NEC to showcase its Nutromex TEA products for anaerobic digestion plants.
