Ydro Process® microorganisms enhance the existing microbial community’s capacity to degrade organic material. These specialized microorganisms leverage more efficient metabolic pathways to accelerate the degradation rate and enhance biological performance. The Ydro Process® can be applied in many types of composting and anaerobic digestion systems.
OUR SOLUTIONS INCLUDE
Waste-to-Energy Systems (Anaerobic Digestion)
The Ydro Process® is an integrated solution combining targeted microorganisms and advanced analytics to enhance the overall performance of biological treatment processes. In anaerobic digestion systems, the application of the Ydro Process® increases digestion rates, treatment capacity, and overall efficiency.
Systems using the Ydro Process® have the potential to increase biogas production and significantly increase energy output due to a higher methane concentration. Additionally, the low concentration of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) in the produced biogas minimizes scrubbing requirements.
Ydro Process® microorganisms enhance the existing microbial community’s capacity to degrade organic material in anaerobic digesters. These specialized microorganisms leverage different metabolic pathways which accelerate the degradation rate and increase the efficiency of the biological treatment process. The degradation of complex organic molecules leads to the production of volatile fatty acids (VFAs), such as acetic, butyric, and propionic acid. The VFAs are then easily converted to Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) in aerobic conditions, or methane (CH4) and hydrogen (H2) in anaerobic conditions, yielding greater energy production potential.
