Anaerobic digestion is a process in which microorganisms convert organic matter into biogas in the absence of oxygen. It is an energy-efficient process that is typically utilized to treat high-strength industrial wastewater that is warm and contains high concentrations of biodegradable organic matter (measured as BOD, COD, and/or TSS). An anaerobic system can be used for pretreatment prior to discharging to a municipal wastewater treatment plant or before polishing in an aerobic process.
Our technologies include:
- ADI-BVF® Reactor
- External Circulation Sludge Bed (ADI-ECSB)
- Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor (ADI-AnMBR)
- CH4 Generating Reactor (ADI-CGR®)
- Continuously Stirred Tank Reactor (ADI-CSTR)
- Hybrid Reactor (ADI-Hybrid)
Anaerobic processes use substantially less energy, require less chemicals, and incur lower sludge handling costs compared to aerobic treatment options. In addition, the biogas produced in the anaerobic process is a source of renewable energy that can be used to displace fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas, or to generate electricity.
