Control sulphur and boost output

Ferric Hydroxide

Sulphur compounds are released during fermentation which can severely disrupt the biogas process as they interfere with methane generation. And the problem doesn’t stop there as the compounds also cause odour and corrosion problems.

It’s why plant owners and operators rely on us to provide a simple and effective solution that, once added to the digester, halts sulphur concentration and secures high methane output.

The high sulphur
concentration hazards

Disruption of microbiology

  • Inhibition of methane formation
  • Precipitation of trace elements
  • Killing of methane bacteria

Damage to machinery

  • Adverse effect on components
  • Corrosion in system
  • Higher emissions

Damage to CHP

  • Acidification of engine oil
  • Corrosion of engine parts
  • Loss of warranty
