MetZyme® FORCI™ is a product family offering novel tools for biogas applications.
FORCI™ solutions are based on combination of addressing lignin, facilitating access to reducing sugars, oxidizing soluble phenolic compounds, and neutralizing harmful chemicals. These actions reduce inhibitors and leave nutrients better available for microbial processes.
Absolutely unique feature of FORCI™ is it’s capability to addresses the soluble lignin, phenolic compounds and micro-pollutants in the feedstock. If left unhandled, these inhibitors have shown to dramatically decrease the effectiveness of related microbiological process. For example, MetZyme® FORCI™ has doubled the methane production rate from straw gaining half of the total yield in one week from what is typically a 60 day process. In addition to methane production rate increase, FORCI™ has shown to reduce the volume of the solid waste created by 10% – and also improve the dewatering properties of the waste.
Furthermore, addressing lignin-based compounds in anaerobic reactor may decrease the composting time. Also, recycled of the process waters accumulate less inhibitors when an active enzyme treatment is utilized.
Soluble lignin is a harmful inhibitor for any microbiological processes. FORCI™ solutions are designed to help you make the most value out of the side streams – or alternatively to minimize the related cost. We can help you lower the hard-COD, waste volumes, and labor cost, but at the same time increase capacity, methane production, and operating hours.
MetGen always tailors the enzymatic solutions to match the customer specific conditions. We know that all the processes are unique – we have developed a range of highly robust enzymes to meet the challenge.
MetZyme® FORCI™ is a concentrated liquid product with an operating at temperatures between 10°C and 85°C and a wide range of pH. MetGen’s team of experts is always available to ensure the right dosing point – and offers all the help needed to optimize the enhanced process.
