  1. 1. High-loaded thermophilic anaerobic digestion of mixed sewage sludge : A pilot study

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Santiago Elejalde Bolaños; [2022]
    Keywords : thermophilic anaerobic digestion; volatile fatty acids; mixed sludge; organic loading rate; alkalinity; wastewater treatment plant; termofil rötning; flyktiga fettsyror; blandslam; organisk belastning; alkalinitet; avloppsreningsverk;

    Abstract : Municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are important infrastructural components in a society and also important for sustainability. In a WWTP the most common treatment configuration is mechanical, biological, and chemical treatment of the wastewater. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimization of a two-step anaerobic treatment of wastewater from the Pulp and Paper Industry

    University essay from KTH/Industriell bioteknologi

    Author : Sara Bard; [2022]
    Keywords : Wastewater treatment; biogas; methane; pulp and paper mill wastewater; wood raw material; anaerobic treatment; sulphate reduction; UAPB reactor; Vattenrening; biogas; metan; processvatten från pappers- och massaindustrin; träråvara; anaerob rening; sulfatreduktion; UAPB reaktor;

    Abstract : Under de senaste 30 åren så har antalet massa- och pappersbruk minskat medan den totala produktionen av massa och papper har ökat. En högre produktion per bruk tillsammans med en hårdare miljölagstiftning, sätter ett högre tryck på vattenreningen på varje bruk. READ MORE

  3. 3. Potential of waste-derived VFAs-bearing effluents as an external carbon source for MBBR denitrification of domestic wastewater

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Seyed Reza Manafi Khosroshahi; [2022]
    Keywords : Volatile fatty acids; Denitrification; Wastewater treatment; Biological nutrient removal; Nitrate removal; Electron accepter; Carbon source; Electron doner; Moving bed biofilm reactor; Nanofiltration; VFA concentration; Discharge standards; Carriers; acclimatization; VFAs; MMBR; NF; WWTP; BNR;

    Abstract : In conventional wastewater treatment plants, methanol, ethanol, and acetate are used as carbon source for the denitrification process in the biological nutrient removal. However, growing concern regarding economical costs and carbon footprints from the fossil-based production of these chemicals have forced the companies to look for other alternatives. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparison of mesophilic and thermophilic anaerobic sludge digestion at Hammarby Sjöstadsverk MBR pilot plant for wastewater treatment

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Jessica Sellin; [2021]
    Keywords : Anaerobic digestion; sludge; wastewater treatment; thermophilic; mesophilic; stress test;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion is a commonly used method for stabilisation of sewage sludge and production of biogas at municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). The hydraulic retention time for sludge in the digestion reactors is about 16 days at Henriksdal WWTP in Stockholm. READ MORE

  5. 5. Edible Fungal Production using Acetic Acid as Carbon and Energy Source

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi; Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Barbara Mae Alontaga; Anna Axebrink; [2020]
    Keywords : VFA; Volatile fatty acid; acetic acid; Fungi; Carbon source; Energy source;

    Abstract : Volatile fatty acids (VFAs) have become attractive and gained high research interest due to its significance for the chemical industry and economical advantage. These acids can be produced by utilizing organic waste such as food waste as substrate through anaerobic digestion. READ MORE
