About the Solution:
Clear Technologies, an authorized distributor of MicroNox, is a provider of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) media for the biogas industry. They are pleased to introduce a high-performance H2S reduction powder called MicroNox. This H2S reduction powder is being utilized at in Anaerobic Digesters in the U.S. and in Europe. MicroNox is a mixture of iron oxides-hydroxides and other functional oxides.
The product is a naturally mined iron oxide that has been developed to be added directly in complete mix style of digester(s). MicroNox will internally reduce the H2S to sulfur, allowing the sulfur to exit the digester in the digestate. The powder efficiently reduces the effluent H2S in the biogas by ~75%, resulting in competitive H2S removal costs. This product has been the object of extensive preliminary studies with successful application in biogas plants.
MicroNox doesn’t require any special storage or specific training to be used properly as the powder is a natural substance which is classified as non-hazardous. It is packaged in 44 lb. fermentable paper bags which can be added directly to the process without opening the bags and is also available in 2,200 lb super sacks.
