wastewater testing sample kit

Dynamic Duo

  • Speeds the breakdown of proteins into amino acids
  • Lowers levels of volatile solids and improves biological methane potential
  • Works between 59 -140°F (15-45°C) and between pH 6.0 and 8.5
  • Provide more consistency in operations and methane generation

Ana-Zyme G

  • Quickly converts grease (long chain fatty acids) into methane gas
  • Allows anaerobic systems to accept higher levels of grease into their processes
  • Works between 15°C and 60°C and pH 6.0 and 8.5


  • Boosts methane production by providing a consistent source of bioavailable micronutrients to methane forming archaea
  • Provides consistent volatile solids conversion, a healthier population of methanogenic archaea, and a better quality of biogas production
  • Contains ten soluble micronutrients that help convert acetate into valuable methane gas
