  • Anaerobic digestion of brewery wastewater solids in the form of primary sludge was investigated for its potential as a source of energy (methane). We operated a low-rate (hydraulic retention time (HRT)=solids retention time (SRT)) continuously stirred anaerobic digester (CSAD) and a high-rate (SRT>HRT) anaerobic sequencing batch reactor (ASBR) in parallel for 250 days. We found that high-rate anaerobic digestion was beneficial for solids-rich waste flows even during a long-term operating period… CONTINUE READING
