Common Anaerobic Digestion Issues

Efficiencies within anaerobic digestion result from several factors; operational conditions, chemical conditions, and biological conditions. Few companies genuinely understand how correctly accounting for the chemical and biological conditions within each system reduces risks and increases the long-term profitability of a digester project.

At Digester Doc, we improve the anaerobic digester industry through expert consulting, laboratory testing, education, research & development, and public advocacy.

We consult with small businesses and major corporations alike, and our experts are actively involved in developing environmental policies.

Common Issues We Can Tackle

Sulfur Remediation

H₂S is an unavoidable part of anaerobic digestion. In trace amounts (less than 50 ppm) the effect on your anaerobic digester is negligible. Our sulfur study determines the best sulfur solution for your digester by testing a number of commercially available additives with your feedstock.

  • Recommended additive solutions 
  • Technology-neutral advice to find the best custom solution for your anaerobic digester’s unique specifications.

Foaming Remediation

Digester foaming events can have a catastrophic impact on gas production. Our foaming study helps you to understand the nature of your foam so you can treat it quickly and effectively.

  • 1-hour consultation to identify the source of your foam and a sample analysis to identify a rapid solution.
  • Further consultation will also be made available at a discounted rate as needed.

Biogas Yield

Gas yield downturns events are a complicated matter and could arise from countless scenarios. A Biogas yield consultation would start with a free consultation call to establish some general information and identify possible testing avenues to determine the culprit for your downturn.

  • Identified the cause of this downturn 
  • Provide personalized recommendations to resolve the issue.
  • Find new solutions to increase yields
