Biological processes converge to a steady state determined by the natural system. Bioaugmentation is used to improve specific performance characteristics of a biological process by adding microorganisms. It shifts the biological process from its natural steady equilibrium, to a state that is beneficial to our needs.
In wastewater treatment plants, AH Bioaugmentation is used for increasing the production of methane in anaerobic digestion of sludge in municipal wastewater treatment plants. The results are:
Convert more organic matter to biogas
Increase methane content in the Biogas
Higher efficiency in energy generation
