Biogas production often makes use of manure. The type and composition of the manure are crucial considerations in order to maximize the output of your biogas plant. DSM can give support tailored to your choice of raw material.

In the case of cow manure, while most of the energy from the cow’s diet has been digested through the cow’s stomach, the manure still holds organic matter, with there being some undigested fibers and considerable material from  intestinal biomass. Both dairy and meat cattle manure is used in practice MethaPlus® acts on the undigested fibers in the cow manure such that the fibers become better suited  for the microorganisms in the biogas fermentor.
