Biogas: analysis and optimisation for your operation

The WESSLING experts are constantly working to improve the yield of biogas plants.

In order to constantly ensure progress in the field of biogas analysis, we are innovative and have been supporting farmers and biogas plant operators with new, credible solutions for many years. WESSLING offers a unique range of services for increasing the efficiency of your biogas plant and thus the potential energy yield.  The most recent example of how we are innovative is the patented BagFerm procedure for analysing your fermentation substrate.

Input, bioreactor and digestate analysis – biogas analyses for each application

Our service portfolio ranges from input, bioreactor and digestate analysis to fermentation tests. Operational safety is ensured through gas leak detection, emission measurements and raw gas analysis. Determination of the biogas yield, key figures and the mass balance round off our range of services. Nationally and internationally, WESSLING is therefore one of a handful of service providers that can offer their customers such a comprehensive range of biogas analysis services.

Transport and safe preservation of biogas samples

We have developed a simple preservation technique so that your sample reaches our laboratories in the best condition possible. Good sample material is the prerequisite for reliable analysis results. The contents of organic acids in the sample can change significantly within a few hours. To transport your sample, we therefore provide you with a perfect preservative to which you simply add to the sample.
