This review summarizes the results from numerous laboratory, pilot, and full-scale anaerobic co-digestion (ACD) studies of wastewater sludge with the co-substrates of organic fraction of municipal solid waste, food waste, crude glycerol, agricultural waste, and fat, oil and grease. The critical factors that influence the ACD operation are also Author: Wei Ling Chow, Siewhui Chong, Jun Wei Lim, Yi Jing Chan, Mei Fong Chong, Timm Joyce Tiong, Jit Kai C. Fundamentals of Anaerobic Digestion of Wastewater Sludges process performance indices, product stability, and laboratory and pilot studies on digestion. Although the text is aimed at digestion of municipal sludges, the fundamentals are sufficiently general to permit extrapolation to decomposition of other organics.

Laboratory studies. To aid in the selection of the most suitable on-site biological treatment process laboratory trials were performed at the University of Glamorgan using a 5 litre biological aerated filter (BAF) and 5 litre UASB anaerobic : Richard Dinsdale, Kevin Bryne, David Tucker.

The sludge treatment and disposal can proceed in the following way. The sludge contains organic matter, metals, and a number of disease-causing microorganisms. Before the sludge can be utilized, these must be removed as effectively as possible. The most common treatment options include anaerobic digestion, aerobic digestion, and composting. Anaerobic digestion results in the biological breakdown of the sludge into methane, carbon dioxide, unusable immediate organics and a small amount of cellular protoplasm, under anaerobic. @article{osti_, title = {Kinetics and advanced digester design for anaerobic digestion of water hyacinth and primary sludge}, author = {Chynoweth, D.P. and Dolenc, D.A. and Ghosh, S. and Henry, M.P. and Jerger, D.E. and Srivastava, V.J.}, abstractNote = {A research program centered around a facility located at Walt Disney World (WDW) is in progress to evaluate the use of water hyacinth. Laboratory studies on dry anaerobic digestion of mixture of paper, kitchen food waste, and sewage sludge have demonstrated the optimum performance at total solids (TS) at the range of 30–35% TS.

Anaerobic Digestion of Waste Activated Sludge. The purpose of this laboratory study was to evaluate, and model the effect of solids retention time in the activated sludge process (θ c A S) on the performance of anaerobic digesters fed the resulting waste sludges.
