  • H2 consumption by anaerobic non-methanogenic mixed cultures

    The impact of H2 consumption, by homoacetogens, on the overall hydrogen yield in mixed culture fermentation is the focus of this study. Batch reactors were used to test the ability of anaerobic digested sludge, heat treated to eliminate methanogens, to produce and consume molecular hydrogen. The measured average hydrogen production rate from 4.2 g glucose/L was 44 ± 4 mmol H2/L sludge · d, while ...

  • Low temperature microwave and conventional heating pre-treatments to improve sludge anaerobic biodegradability

    This paper presents the results of lab-scale experiments on low temperature thermal pre-treatment (less than 100 °C) prior to anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge. Two heating ways, microwave heating (MH) and conventional heating (CH), and two types of sludge, primary and waste activated sludge, were compared under the same experimental conditions. The degree of solubilisation produced by ...

  • Steam injection heating of biosolids & sludge for Anaerobic Digestion

    The article focuses on the integration of Direct Steam Injection (DSI) heating as a method for heating of Municapal, Industrial, Food, & Agricultural wastewater streams. Common applications are anerobic digestion, biogas production, waste de-activation, and FOG (Fats-Oils-Grease) heating. Topics covered include how DSI works, how to select a DSI heater suitable for viscous & difficult to ...
