Co-Digestion of Organic Wastes at Wastewater Treatment Plants
07/14/2010 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm EDT
Direct addition of high-strength organic wastes to municipal wastewater anaerobic digesters, often referred to as co-digestion, is part of a growing trend of sustainable design practices in wastewater treatment. Removing FOG, industrial wastes, and restaurant wastes from the collection system and delivering them directly to an anaerobic process enhances beneficial outputs from these facilities. This webcast will further elaborate on the topics discussed in the technical practice update (TPU) released in May 2010 on co-digestion. (Visit www.wef.org/TPUs to access the document.) The focus will be on design and analysis on co-digestion programs. The webcast will cover co-digestion drivers; potential feedstocks; waste receiving and handling; and process background, design, and case studies. A panel discussion will follow the presentations to allow the audience a chance to interact with the presenters.
