Methanogens Require Trace Elements
Methane production is both important for biogas and digester health. When methanogens don’t receive adequate food, the result is an overabundance of acid in the digester and a sharp drop in methane production.
Trace elements like cobalt, nickel, and iron are an essential component to the output of methanogenic bacteria. These bacteria need a steady supply of trace elements to form the biocatalysts necessary for methane production. Aquafix has developed a form of these crucial metals that is 100% bioavailable, which means the metals have been formulated to be completely absorbed by the bacterial cells. Putting in simple or commodity-based forms of these metals will not have any effect, as they are not taken up or used by the biology.
