BioGas1 boosts methane production and improves the function of methane forming bacteria by delivering bioavailable micronutrients. This product speeds conversion of volatile acids and can help anaerobic digesters become more stable

Anaerobic Food Supplement

Anaerobic Food Supplement provides the building blocks to anaerobic life. This product provides methane-forming bacteria with a COD and micronutrient source specific for their growth and stabilization.

Qwik-Zyme L

Lipid-degrading biocatalysts that break down grease and long chain fatty acids that can build up in anaerobic digesters and cause foaming. Use whenever a load of high FOG feedstock is added, or fatty acids are building up in the digester.

DeFoam 3000

DeFoam 3000 is a highly effective and concentrated anti-foam solution formulated specifically for use in aerobic and anaerobic wastewater treatment processes.
