Pioneers in Anaerobic Digestion System optimization


Microbial Matrix: Understand the Biology of Your Digester

We understand the crucial role microbial communities play in anaerobic digestion processes. Our Microbial Matrix service is designed to provide you with comprehensive insights into the microbial composition of your anaerobic digester, aiding in optimizing anaerobic digestion efficiency and biogas production.

The Importance of your
Microbial Communities.

Microbial communities within anaerobic digesters are diverse and complex, comprising various species of bacteria, archaea, and fungi. These microorganisms work synergistically to degrade complex organic compounds into simpler molecules. Understanding the composition and functionality of these microbial communities is crucial for optimizing anaerobic digestion performance. Variations in microbial composition can significantly impact process stability, biogas yield, and overall efficiency.

Our Groundbreaking Microbial Matrix process



To begin the analysis, we require an effluent sample from your anaerobic digester. This sample should represent the current microbial community and the composition of the digester's biology.


DNA Extraction

Using state-of-the-art molecular biology techniques, we extract microbial DNA from the collected sample. This DNA serves as the basis for identifying and characterizing the microbial species present.


DNA Sequencing and Analysis:

The extracted DNA is then subjected to high-throughput sequencing, allowing us to generate detailed profiles of the microbial community. Advanced bioinformatics tools are employed to analyze the sequencing data, identifying specific microbial taxa and their functional roles within the ecosystem.


Functional Categorization

Beyond taxonomic identification, we categorize microbial species based on their functional roles in anaerobic digestion. This includes identifying key players involved in the methanogenic process, as well as assessing the physical characteristics preferred by existing microbial species.


Comprehensive Report

Upon completion of the analysis, clients receive a comprehensive report detailing the microbial composition of their digester, along with insights into functional roles and interactions within the microbial community.
