Anaerobic Digestion in Wastewater Treatment – UASBs EGSBs and Staging

A well-proven Anaerobic Digestion Wastewater Treatment method is the process of decomposing organic matter of municipal sewage sludge, anaerobically under operational control. Wastewaters which will Benefit from Anaerobic Digestion Treatment Anaerobic digestion is an ideal process for treating some polluted wastewaters. The methanogenic archaea populations play an indispensable role in anaerobic wastewater treatment. By “digesting” the organic […]

Quick Test for Inhibitors in Biogas Substrates – New Weltec Biogas Inhibition Test Progress

A quick test for identifying inhibitors in Biogas Substrates is badly needed by the commercial biogas plant industry. Existing methods such as the Diary Farmer’s “Aerobic Plate Count” inhibitor test are not directly applicable to anaerobic biogas conditions, so a New Biogas Inhibition Test Method is badly needed. A major biogas plant systems provider WELTEC […]
