Innovation by ZORG leads to 30% increase in production of biogas

On 23.09.2010 company representatives announced a unique discovery in a field of biogas technology. Enzymes, company’s new product, substantially increase the capacity of biogas plants that are currently in the process of construction and ones that have been already built.

Biogas industry – is the industry of large financial investments with a turnover running into milliards of US dollars. Hundreds of thousands of biogas plants are functioning around the globe. The discovery made by technicians of “ZORG Ukraine,” a subsidiary company of Swedish “Zorg Biogas AG,” is capable of establishing primary changes in the industry field.

Enzymes are natural proteins, responsible for the process of metabolism of plants, animals and people alike. These chemical components are biocatalysts i.e. their presence causes and accelerates the transformation of organic substance. Most types of enzymes are catabolic - involved in the process of decomposition, while 3-5% are anabolic - responsible for synthesis. Bacteria and mold fungi produce enzymes that decompose organic matter. ZORG’s new product, a highly effective biocatalyst, is the result of an application of a unique technology of synthesis of various kinds of enzymes.

Employment of enzymes in production of biogas provides effective results and lower expenditure: the major advantage is 20-30% increase in the amount of biogas produced from the same amount of raw materials. Amount of enzymes needed in production of biogas is extremely small – 100 grams for 1 tonne of dry organic material used in biogas production i.e. the largest biogas plant with capacity of 1 MW requires 2 kilograms of enzymes per 24 hours.
