The bioCrack is a state-of-art high voltage lysing system that prepares the liquid for maximized biogas yield and reduces solid contents in the sludge. The overall system uses mechanical maceration combined with an electrokinetic process that produces a liquid with the highest potential for making biogas and reducing solids compared to conventional slurry handling and reduction methods.
The bioCrack provides the bacteria easier access to the nutrients in the bio-suspension. A high voltage field is generated by the elelctrokinetic disintegration process within the module. Exposure to the field degrades and breaks the cell walls of the organic matter. As a result, the nutrients within the cells are released to the fermenting bacteria. The result: Increased gas yield, better utilisation of the substrates and less residual solids to dispose of.
