Anaerobic digester feed stream conditioning for increasing biogas production (Technical report 7)

Ng, Wun Jern and Trzcinski, Antoine and Wang, Chong and Tian, Xinbo (2013) Anaerobic digester feed stream conditioning for increasing biogas production (Technical report 7). Project Report. Unpublished . [Report]


In the seventh report, additional investigation and analysis of the ultrasonication were conducted. The maximum ULS specific energy input tested was 63 kJ/g TS. Low energy ULS effectively reduced particle size in sludge. Excitation Emission Matrix (EEM) was used and soluble microbial product-like substances were found to increase obviously after ULS pre-treatment. Sludge anaerobic biodegradability increased linearly with increasing SCOD concentration.

A standardized dewaterability measurement (Capillary Suction time, CST) was conducted for ULS pre-treated sludge with different specific energy inputs. ULS was found to significantly deteriorate the sludge dewaterability.
