Title: METHANOS - a novel bacterial product to significantly increase the efficiency of biogas plants
METHANOS is a product of high-performance bacteria, is the use of the biogas process directly influenced positively on bacterial levels. The addition of the specific gas yield increases METHANOS from the starting materials by up to 20% and the capacity of the biogas plant can reliably be increased to 7.5 kg VS / m * d. That is more than a threefold increase above the national average of 2.2 kg VS / m * d of multistage processes and an increase of approximately 70% compared to the national average of 4.5 kg VS / m * d for single-stage processes. These effects have been demonstrated not only in-house tests, including a transfer in the practice of agricultural biogas plants has been carried out successfully several times.
