The patented Kompogas process
The Kompogas process is based on continuous dry fermentation via a plug flow digester. The fermentation process is both thermophilic and anaerobic. Specifically, in this type of dry fermentation, the temperature in the digester is 55 degrees Celsius. The average substrate moisture is 75 per cent, and the retention time is approx. 14 days. The Kompogas process biodegrades unwanted spores, germ buds and micro-organisms reliably.
The continuous feed, horizontal plug flow digester permits a high gas yield and is extremely reliable in operation with the simple control options. An agitator ensures optimal formation of methane. A special arrangement of the agitator paddles also prevents sedimentation of the dense media in the fermentation substrate.
