Developing rapid digestion bioreactors for biogas production

In this project we are going to develop a digester for more rapid digest of biological wastes. Our goal is to decrease the total time of digestion.

This project aims to develop bioreactors and a process for rapid digestion of waste materials. For this purpose we pretreat the wastes and then digest it in a two-step reactor system using flocculated sludge. Our goal is to reduce the total digestion process to less than seven days.
