Accumulation of acids in anaerobic digesters after organic overload can inhibit or stop CH4 production. Therefore, methods to reduce acid concentrations would be helpful. One potential method to improve recovery involves bioaugmentation, addition of specific microorganisms to improve performance. In this study, transiently overloaded digesters were bioaugmented with a propionate-degrading enrichment culture in an effort to decrease recovery time. Biomass samples from 14 different, full-scale… CONTINUE READING
