  • The feasibility of trace element supplementation for stable operation of wheat stillage-fed biogas tank reactors

    The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of trace element supplementation on operation of wheat stillage-fed biogas tank reactors. The stillage used was a residue from bio-ethanol production, containing high levels of sulfate. In biogas production, high sulfate content has been associated with poor process stability in terms of low methane production and accumulation of process ...

  • Biomineralisation of dye waste in a two-phase hybrid UASB reactor using starch effluent as a co-substrate

    Starch and dye wastes have wide variation in their characteristics were treated on combination; this new technology supports the effective utilisation of starch waste in destruction of dyes. In this investigation, a lab-scale two-phase HUASBR was used at ambient temperature. After start-up, the dye and starch effluent were mixed at different proportions and fed into the reactor. The reactor was ...

  • Waterschapsbedrijf Limburg (WBL) - case study

    Along with WBL Sustec has tested and lab researched  the continuous thermal hydrolysis of the surplusslib of the wastewater treatment plants Hoensbroek and Venlo. On this basis is determined the most optimal hydrolysis method. Then for nine months on pilot scale tests were carried out to the thermal hydrolysis and fermentation of the surplusslib. The tests confirmed that by thermal ...
