Anaerobic treatability and biogas production potential studies of different agro-industrial wastewaters in Turkey

The anaerobic treatability and methane generation potential of the wastewaters of the three important agro-industries in Turkey, namely, cheese-making, poultry breeding and the olive-oil mill industries were studied. Biochemical methane potential (BMP) experiments were conducted for different initial chemical oxygen demand (COD) concentrations. The results indicate that anaerobic treatment was possible for all the wastewaters studied and the biogas produced had a high methane content.

Anaerobic treatability and residual biogas potential of the effluent stream of anaerobic digestion processes
Ugudur, Nilufer; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (2019-03-01)
Although anaerobic digestion is a well-established technology, the treatment and disposal of the digestate still presents a challenge due to lack of viable methods for processing. The residual organic matter in digestates also creates a significant residual biogas potential. This fact indicates that the digestates need further processing not only to reduce their organic content for disposal, but also to capture the biogas associated with this residual organic content. This study investigated anaerobic treat...
Anaerobic treatability and biogas production potential of pistachio processing wastewater with upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (uasb) reactor

Agro-industrial wastes cannot be treated in conventional wastewater treatment plants due to high organic contents. However, they have a high potential as renewable energy resources, and can be converted into valuable end products via application of appropriate treatment technologies. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a process which converts organic materials into methane and carbon dioxide in the absence of oxygen. Therefore, wellestablished anaerobic biotechnologies, such as up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UA...
Anaerobic co-digestion of sewage sludge and primary clarifier skimmings for increased biogas production
Alanya, S.; Yılmazel Tokel, Yasemin Dilşad; Park, C.; Willis, J. L.; Keaney, J.; Kohl, P. M.; Hunt, J. A.; Duran, M. (IWA Publishing, 2013-01-01)
The objective of the study was to identify the impact of co-digesting clarifier skimmings on the overall methane generation from the treatment plant and additional energy value of the increased methane production. Biogas production from co-digesting clarifier skimmings and sewage sludge in pilot-scale fed-batch mesophilic anaerobic digesters has been evaluated. The digester was fed with increasing quantities of clarifier skimmings loads: 1.5, 2.6, 3.5 and 7.0 g COD equivalent/(L.d) (COD: chemical oxygen dem...
