Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector - Water and Wastewater - Sludge Management
Nevertheless, anaerobic sludge digesters from time to time suffer from a series of operating problems including:
- Sour digestion syndrome – caused by acid build-up with simultaneous slowing or cessation of gas production.
- Grease blankets – caused by the build-up of insolubles on the surface of the digester.
- Nutrient imbalance – caused by the lack of certain key micronutrients. This slows the sludge stabilization process.
QM Environmental Services offers 2 products that can help solve and prevent these problems. Furthermore our products have demonstrated the enhancement of the digestion process resulting in higher biogas yields.
Nutrient Blend for Anaerobic Digesters: Enhances anaerobic digester performance. Improves grease digestion and gas production.
Bioblend for anaerobic wastewater treatment systems: Specialty blend of micronutrients, microbes, microbial growth enhancers and neutralizing agents for use in stimulating (and re-establishing, if necessary) biological activity in anaerobic wastewater systems, in general, and upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors, in particular.
A natural product which when used results in an improved ecosystem of sludge digesters. The micro organisms present in the digester, which are responsible for the transformation of the organic matter and retreive there energy from this process, can work optimal with the use of BioStym. This results in an improved methanogenic phase of the digestion process which results in higher biogas yields. Scientific research has demonstrated that, regardless of the size of the digester, an increase of biogas production from 5 to 25% can be achieved.
