Tailored BMPs for Varied Feedstocks & Systems


Standard BMP

The Standard BMP test represents the industry standard for assessing the biomethane potential of organic substrates. We run your samples through the AMPTS II, measuring ultra-low biomethane flows from the anaerobic digestion of biodegradable substrates.This meticulous analysis under controlled conditions measures the biogas production potential of your sample, providing crucial insights for optimizing your AD performance.


Chemically Altered BMP

In some cases, ensuring accurate BMP results requires adjusting the nutrient composition of the sample. Our Chemically Altered BMP test achieves this by supplementing the sample with essential nutrients such as cobalt, nickel, selenium, molybdenum, and zinc to meet the minimum requirements for BMP testing. Prior to conducting this test, a Trace Metals Analysis is necessary to determine the current levels of these nutrients.


Academic BMP

The Academic BMP test offers a traditional approach to BMP testing, primarily utilizing seed material with a small amount of substrate to estimate BMP values. This method is particularly useful when dealing with substrates that serve as only a partial feed to your AD system, offering valuable insights without the need for extensive sample quantities.



Our latest innovation, the HSAD BMP test, simulates a batch plug flow scenario to assess biomethane potential in high solids AD situations. Designed for substrates with solids content ranging from 30% to 50%, this process provides a deeper understanding of biogas production dynamics in challenging environments, enabling more effective AD system optimization.



For applications involving low solids wastewaters or feedstocks requiring significant dilution for stable biological processes, our 2 L BMP test is the ideal solution. Conducted in larger vessels compared to traditional BMP tests, this approach ensures accurate assessment and optimization of lagoon digesters and similar systems.

You ask, we answer

A Biomethane Potential (BMP) test is a biological evaluation to determine the potential methane volume generated from a sample material over a specified period. It serves as a crucial tool for assessing the suitability of current or potential feedstock for biogas capturing processes.

At the conclusion of the BMP study, you will receive a comprehensive report that includes:

  • Detailed description of the testing materials and methods employed to ensure rigorous testing standards.
  • Results of the test indicating average daily methane accumulation in the samples throughout the testing period.
  • Recommendations tailored to your specific situation, including any suggested actions or further testing needed.
  • A consultation call where our experts will explain the test results and recommendations in depth.

You will be provided with detailed instructions on how to collect samples and submit them for testing. Once the study is completed, we will schedule a consultation call to go over the results with you. Our team will ensure that you have a clear understanding of the findings and their implications for your project.

Scheduling your BMP is simple and straightforward. You can either email or call our sales representative, who will guide you through the process and help determine the right BMP solution for your specific needs. From there, we will initiate the scheduling process, ensuring a seamless experience for you.
