About the Solution:
Anaerobic digesters are biomechanical systems. And while mechanical issues do occur, many digesters find themselves struggling because of a biological issue. At Digester Doc they are the biology experts, and their team has over 20 years of experience in aerobic and anaerobic biology.
The Digester Doc team of seasoned professionals has the experience to get the job done right the first time. Most people only go to the doctor when something is wrong, and most digesters only come to Digester Doc when something is wrong. They have seen the worst kinds of upsets out there, and know how to fix them. Their experience is especially desirable for developers, as they can correct several issues before a project is even built.
Digester Doc offers ala carte consulting to correct one-time issues, laboratory services geared toward increasing gas yields, and retainer packages for co-development assistance. They also offer CI evaluations, RIN/LCFS navigation, and project feasibility analysis.
