New bacterial additive to increase performance of plant-based AD plants
The anaerobic digester at Clayton Hall Farm was the first farm-based biogas plant to process food waste in the UK. Now Clayton Hall Farm goes one step further and developed a new bacterial additive particularly good at digesting (hemi)cellulose-rich feedstocks and a method to fed it to the biogas reactor. The additive increases biogas production, speed up the process with a factor 2 and produces less digestate. Clayton Hall farm is testing this with a German biogas plant (seeenergie.net) treating feedstock from Steinkamp KG (Germany).
