Biogas Substrate (Higher biogas production at lower operational cost)

Through years of continuous research and with the aid of state-of-the-art German laboratory equipment, Biotech Farms has developed the first Continuously Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR) Biogas Test Plant in the Philippines.

The operation of our new biogas test plant mirrors that of large-scale CSTR biogas digester plants, and consists of 15-liter capacity reactors capable of mixing and storing substrate at the specific temperature required for optimal biogas production. Our test plant features multiple substrate verification systems, allowing us to closely monitor every stage of biogas production with a high degree of accuracy. Using the latest technology, our laboratory analyzes the composition of different types of substrate (such as silage) to determine the optimal composition for biogas production. In addition, all of our reactors are integrated with a fully-automated gas analysis system, allowing us to continuously measure the quantity and quality of the biogas in each reactor with minimal human intervention. Each reactor also features a continuous pH measurement system, enabling us to manually monitor and adjust the pH levels of each reactor to create the most favorable conditions for microbial growth.
