Development bioprocesses for handling and recycling seasonal industrial wastewaters.

    Project Details

    Description

    Food processing and other industries typically generate wastewaters that contain a high organic content. An optimal basic treatment for such wastewater could be anaerobic digestion, a process, on top of significantly reduction of the organic matter, can generate biogas.
    The proposed work will:
    -examine the characteristics of seasonally produced wastewater
    -investigate the co-digestibility of these wastewaters from a kinetic and microbial point of view
    -determine the optimal planning and scheduling for digestion process
    -investigate alternative digesters types, configurations and designs for flexibility
    -evaluate overall processes that exploit fully the by-products of anaerobic digestion
