Full RNG System Check-Up

An imbalance in your anaerobic digester can significantly reduce biogas yield potential. We test specific parameters to find balance in these nutrient levels, essential in optimizing your facility for maximum gas yields and minimized downtime.

The first Stage

recovering your anaerobic digester's health

Our Full Check-Up service is similar to a health screen at your doctor’s office. The Full Check-Up is a first-stage test that can identify biological and chemical issues within your digester, in many cases, early enough to head off costly treatments or unexpected shutdowns. 

Anaerobic Digestion Health Check-up

Peace of mind

A bedrock service

An anaerobic digester is a complex biochemical system that is susceptible to both adverse and inverse compound reactions. Our Full Check-Up is designed to overcome the limitations of reactive planning and gets to the root of system failure before it occurs.  This allows full transparency to understand the biochemical well-being of your system.

See if a Full Check-Up is right for your anaerobic digestion facility and discover how it can assist you in avoiding downtime and critical biological and chemical system failures.


Prepare Your Samples

Per our detailed sampling instructions provided by your Digester Doc point of contact, prepare your feedstock sample for overnight shipment to our laboratory facility. 


Testing Your Samples

We run your samples through our full-service laboratory, where our knowledgeable and skilled staff provide you with fast and accurate results. From there, our consultants will interpret your results and tailor solutions specific to your facility’s needs. 

You ask, we answer

With our team’s assistance, understanding your anaerobic digester’s needs is streamlined and effective. Our laboratory offers precision, reliability, and proven results. 

Often a Full Check-Up is a first stage test conducted to identify the levels of critical trace elements within your feedstock. By identifying which elements are unbalanced in your system the Full Check-Up can inform possible remedies. A single imbalanced element can significantly reduce methane yield potential. Positive increases of 20 – 400% in biogas production have been observed by bringing the AD to optimal concentrations in these various trace elements. 

Over 20 different trace elements are screened, including:

  • Arsenic, which is toxic to anaerobic organisms 
  • Iron, which has stimulatory effects that increase the biogas production
  • Manganese, which is an enzyme activator
  • Cobalt and Nickel, both of which are essential for the reproduction of Methanogenic organisms.

The concentrations of these elements are then assessed against the levels that we have determined are optimal for production, deficient (too little), prohibitive (too much), or toxic (poisoning your digester). These elements also need to be compared to one another, as several elements interact differently with each other based on their concentrations.

At the conclusion of this study, you will receive a full report detailing:

  • The current levels of these tested elements will detail whether they are at optimal, deficient, prohibitive, or toxic levels
  • For elements that are deficient, prohibitive, or toxic the report will explain the impact that corrective action will have on anaerobic digestion
  • Recommendations for corrective action or next stage testing as appropriate.

Once your test is scheduled, you’ll receive detailed instructions on how to sample and send it to us for testing. Once we receive your sample we’ll begin the testing which generally takes less than two weeks. Following the completion of the study, we’ll schedule a call to review the results with you.
