Independent trials conducted by the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and independent approval by the German Agricultural Society , have concluded that applying Silasil Energy provides the best outcome with regards to increasing methane yield and increasing aerobic stability when a clamp is exposed to the air.
Silasil Energy reduces storage losses, prevents reheating at the clamp face during feed out and protects against yeast and mould. Thus, decreasing Dry Matter energy losses and increasing methane yield (min 10%). Moulds will also produce mycotoxins, which can cause biological instability in the digester.
Silasil Energy will preserve the biogas potential of your silage, generating more methane and therefore more profit. It will provide a significant financial return when compared to other widely used biological additives (sidebar reference 1) an untreated control, and against chemical preservatives.
The calculator below allows you to select input variables, feedstock crop variety, crop area, crop yield target, dry matter at harvest, AD site type (CHP or BtG) and variable tariff inputs. They will calculate the benefit to your business.
