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
