Determining the right feedstock for Anaerobic Digesters can be a challenge for AD owners. Anaerobic digestion systems must be designed around available feedstock, and not the other way around. Dr. Digester Biological Services assists in determining the right combination of feedstocks including manure, agricultural feedstocks, residential SSOs, ICI comingled & clean organics, waste water sludge etc. The program can be customized for any configuration systems including plug flow, continuous feed, and waste water treatment systems.

Their services offered:
1. Plant Design and Feasibility Studies
2. AD Health Check Up
3. AD Optimizer Program
Based on a biological simulation called BioTip developed by their German counterpart FITEC (in partnership with a University & Biogas Centre of Excellence). This technology predicts the future biological stability and ideal operating parameters of a given anaerobic digester based on the defined feedstock inputs and operating conditions. For those considering building an Anaerobic Digester, the program may be an investment that could save a lot of trial and error, time and money.
