Micronutrients Acinor 1000

Minimum Dosage - Maximum Effect

For an electrical capacity of 1 MW only 0.8 litres Acinor 1000 are needed per day.

Dr. Friedmann experimented with micronutrients as early as 1989, while doing research work on the anaerobic digestion of waste water from the baker's yeast production process. Once it was realized that the micronutrients need to be “visible” to the methane bacteria, notable successes were achieved.

The fact that the use of micronutrients will bring about considerable gains in efficiency also in agricultural biogas plants was not realized until 2006 and 2007. So-called dry fermentation plants at first made exclusive use of silage as a substrate. This gave rise to biological problems, which were easily remedied though by appropriate micronutrients.

Micronutrients are firmly established in all state-of-the-art biogas plants today. Efficiency stands to gain from the addition of micronutrients even in the case of pure liquid manure digestion. To minimize the effort and cost involved, a formulation ensuring optimum bio-availability of the micronutrients is indispensable.
