About the Company:

OMEX started growing in 1976 and has since developed into a group of companies dedicated to feeding and powering the world. A family run, customer focused, group made up of teams across the globe.

OMEX develop innovative solutions from plant health to renewable energy.
OMEX Environmental develops bio-available micronutrient supplements to maximize the efficiency of Biogas Plants and Anaerobic Digesters. Products are available in the UK and for export worldwide.

About the Solution:

Anaerobic Digestion is one of the main processes which produces renewable energy in the form of biogas. This process involves the treatment of wastewater and organic solid wastes such as municipal, food, agriculture crop, animal waste and a variety of other wastes like sewage sludge, converting the organic portion to biogas.

To perform this process and for anaerobic plants to operate effectively they require a variety of nutrients for the micro-organisms to grow and function properly. However, it is often the case that anaerobic digesters and biogas plants are lacking in these vital micronutrients, and they do not work at their optimum level. This can lead to poor COD and/or organic solids removal, elevated VFA levels, bacterial slime production, poor microbial growth, and poor granulation in UASB type reactors.

To combat these potential anaerobic conditions, OMEX has developed a range of bio available micronutrient solutions to optimize microbial performance in anaerobic digesters, wastewater treatment and biogas plants.

Active Fe - The Active Fe range is a range of non-hazardous iron products supplied to the anaerobic industry for the minimization of hydrogen sulfide levels in the fermenter.

DSM Enzymes - OMEX is the official UK distributor for DSM Biogas. DSM Biogas developed enzyme solutions for biogas application in order to improve the efficiency of fermentation, mainly of fiber rich substrates or more substantial cereal-based fiber substrates, in biogas production.

Nutromex TEA - A range of bio available micronutrient supplements created for the anaerobic digester market. These Trace Element Additives provide a wide range of essential trace elements, in a form fully bio-available in anaerobic conditions, to optimize system performance.
