Product Info

Understanding your digester’s micronutrient content is the key to having effective anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic micronutrient deficiencies can lead to poor methane production, as well as poor volatile solids destruction. Our soluble and insoluble metals testing tests for 14 micronutrients and compares soluble and insoluble fractions of metals for a more accurate picture of metal bioavailability. This allows for precise adjustments of micronutrient concentrations to maximize anaerobic efficiency.

Aquafix laboratories partners with those who run or operate anaerobic digesters of any kind through technical consulting and biological methane potential testing. Feel free to reach out to us for technical assistance any time.
