Bio Gas, Waste Water, Digester, Fermentation, Muni
Bio gas is a valuable and cost effective by-product of industrial and municipal waste treatment. Most facilities having treatment plants utilize this bio-gas as secondary form of energy. However the design and methodology of such systems, do not factor in the efficiency of bio-gas generation i.e. how much gas can be produced by effective treatment of waste. Breakthrough Technologies with ABC Technologies has developed a patented technology BT Sonic, an enhancement tool for digester operations, as the name suggest ultrasonic bombardment is used to disintegrate sludge, in order to enhance bio gas generation. In addition the digesters run more efficiently and robustly as bacteria are able to more quickly convert bio-mass and multiply. Also, this higher conversion rate means that Chemical and Biological Oxygen Demand is reduced in the waste water coming from the digester.
