Anaerobic Digestion

What will a Biomethane Potential (BMP) Lab Test do for You?

Anaerobic digestion of solid organic waste such as bio-waste, sludge, cattle manure, energy crops and other biomasses, for bio-energy production is a widely applied technology used by a variety of Decision Makers.  BMP Lab Tests are a key parameter for assessing design, economic and managing issues for the full scale implementation of anaerobic digestion processes.

Anaerobic Digestion – Consulting:  BMP lab tests support the analysis effort in recognizing feasible and unfeasible anaerobic digestion projects and to fine-tune and optimize current and future projects to maximize biomethane production.

Anaerobic Digestion – Developers:  BMP lab tests reinforce the credibility of the financials during the
due-diligence process by offering quantitative lab test results for current and future projects.

Anaerobic Digestion – Engineering:  Whether you are working with anaerobic wastewater treatment or anaerobic digestion of high solids/high-strength wastes in the public or private sectors, BMP testing should be included in the overall design and operation of the project.

Anaerobic Digestion – Financial:  BMP lab tests substantiate the cost justification and projected revenue stream during the due-diligence process by offering quantitative lab test results for current and future projects.

Anaerobic Digestion – Management:  Conducting BMP lab tests on a regular basis plays a critical role in keeping Anaerobic Digesters operating at Peak Performance.

Biomethane Potential Testing Reporting (BMP)

The BMP (Biomethane Potential Test) provides a preliminary indication of the biodegradability of a substrate (organic material) and it’s potential to produce methane via anaerobic digestion.  The normal procedure to determine the methanogenic activity involves inoculating a number of vials containing a small amount of the target substrate with an anaerobic inoculum (typically waste water sludge or dairy manure), incubating them at a controlled temperature and periodically checking for the methane production by manual sampling and determination of the volume of gas released and analyzing the gas composition using gas chromatography (GC).  This process is labor, time and economically intensive.  The ADLTN Labs provide testing using the AMPTS (Automatic Methane Potential Test System), which automates the process of collecting the gas and analyzing the gas sample for methane content.
