  • Operation of an anaerobic filter compared with an anaerobic moving bed bioreactor for the treatment of waste water from hydrothermal carbonisation of fine mulch

    This experimental study investigates the anaerobic digestion of waste water from hydrothermal carbonisation of fine mulch (wood chips) in combination with a co-substrate for the first time. Two anaerobic reactors, an anaerobic filter (AF) and an anaerobic moving bed bioreactor (AnMBBR), were operated over a period of 131 days at mesophilic conditions. The organic loading rate was increased to ...

  • Case study - Waste food to energy

    BIONOVA-GLOSFUME PROCESS. A patented BIONOVA process which converts food waste into energy was awarded the 2010 Food Processing award. During 2010 Jamie Oliver identified the benefits from converting waste food to energy. This greatly reduces the cost of landfill with the benefit of minimising the cost of hot water for the kitchens. The Glosfume Biomass Filter offers ultra low ...

  • Evaluation of passive reduction of nitrate from greenhouse effluent by planted bioreactors

    A number of pilot-scale gravel and wood-chip hybrid bioreactors planted with select species, together with unplanted units, were evaluated for their nutrient removal capabilities from the typical greenhouse effluent with high levels of nitrate and salts. Two levels of nutrient solution (high and low loading: HL/LL) were prepared to simulate the typical characteristics of the greenhouse ...
