The BMP test is usually the first stage of assessment and comprises of a batch test whereby a known quantity of feedstock is added to a seed digestate from a suitable AD process and the cumulative methane production is recorded over a 14 day test period. 1kg or 1L of feedstock is required for the testing.
A report of results will be produced which will show:-
