  • Life Cycle Assessment technique for sound management of organic municipal solid wastes

    Mauritius generates around 1200 tonnes of municipal solid wastes on a daily basis, out of which more than 60% is of organic nature. The objective of this paper was to evaluate two different strategies for the treatment of organic wastes on a life cycle perspective, namely: composting and Anaerobic Digestion (AD). The functional unit was one ton of organic municipal solid wastes. Windrow ...

  • A retrofitted activated-sludge plant with sequential nitritation and anammox obtains dischargeable effluent

    Abstract New Activated Sludge (NAS) represents a hybrid, floc-based nitrogen removal process, based on the control of solids retention times (SRT) and dissolved oxygen (DO) levels. The aim of this study was to examine the performance of a full-scale NAS plant, which treated anaerobically digested industrial wastewater. The batch-fed partial nitritation step oxidized ...

  • Treating organic waste with Cambi® THP

    This paper describes how the Cambi Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) treats biodegradable organic waste and converts it to renewable energy and pathogen-free and bio-fertilizer. The interest for the process is expected to increase due to new environmental legislation as well as increasing demand for renewable energy. The implementation of the European Landfill Directive 1999/31EC and the Animal-by ...

  • Applications of two-phase anaerobic degradation in industrial wastewater treatment

    Prospects for the phased anaerobic treatment of wastewater are extremely promising. With the variety of reactor designs available and the amenability of reactors to modification, existing treatment systems may be replaced or upgraded as required to achieve increased stability, higher loading capacities and greater process efficiencies than single-stage systems. In recent times, various reactor ...

  • Electrochemically-assisted ammonia recovery from wastewater using a floating electrode

    This work presents and explores a novel methodology for the removal and recovery of ammonia from wastewater based upon two mechanisms: electrochemical oxidation and a previously unreported electrochemically-assisted surface transfer mechanism. Recovery of ammonia is enabled by placing a porous cathodic electrode at the wastewater-air interface. In this configuration, the cathode creates local ...

  • Feasibility of high solid anaerobic digestion: option for treatment of distillers grains from cassava ethanol production

    This research article mainly focused on the feasibility and management of distillers grains produced from ethanol industries using high solid anaerobic digestion systems. A significant barrier for distillers grains in the anaerobic process are its low pH (3.80–4.16) and high C/N ratio (37/1–42/1). According to distillers grains characteristics, the stillage investigated was in dry form (TS 23% to ...

  • Anaerobic digestion of wastewater from the fruit juice industry: experiments and modeling

    Anaerobic digestion of wastewater from the fruit juice industry was carried out in a batch digester. To study the effect of the pH values as well as the nutrient medium on the fermentation process, different parameters were monitored under mesophilic temperature, such as cumulative biogas volume, chemical oxygen demand (COD), total sugar, and biomass growth. It was found that for all cases, the ...
