The functional principles of EcoPure™

The anaerobic microbial metabolism of products shifted with EcoPure™:

Der anaerobe mikrobielle Stoffwechsel von mit ECOPureTMversetzten Produkten

1 In the first step the process of transformation, the Hydrolysis, is done by splitting a chemical compound via reaction with water. By the hydrolysis several bio molecules become divided (e.g. proteins, Disaccharide, Polysaccharide or fats) in the metabolism by enzymes into their components (monomers).

2 The Acidogenesis is the second stage of the facultative anaerobic decomposition process of the EcoPure™ product during the fermentation of biogenous substances. It runs simultaneously with the Hydrolysis and during this non-specific acidic formation, the monomers become converted through the interdict of the hydrolysis on the one hand into low fat/carbon acids, like e.g. butter, andacetic acid, on the other hand into low alcohols, like e.g. ethanol.

3 The Acitogenesis is the third stage of the anaerobic decomposition biogenous substances in the context of the fermentation. During the hydrolysis and acidogenesis the low fat/carbon acids as well as the low alcohols, become converted by acetogene micro-organisms primarily to acetic acid, and/or its dissolved salt.

4 Methane formation and/or the Methanogenesis is the microbial formation of methane (CH4). It represents the last stage of the anaerobic decomposition of biogenous materials, thus that of the EcoPure™ product under conditions. Here acetic acid, which was formed during the Acidogenesis and Acidogenesis, is converted by acetic acid reducing methane particles into methane. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and elementary hydrogen (H2) are converted by hydrogen methane particles (hydrogen nourishing) into methane
and water.
