A biokinetic model based on BioWin's Activated Sludge Digestion Model (ASDM) coupled with a nitrous oxide (N<sub>2</sub>O) model was setup and calibrated for a full-scale wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) Amsterdam West, in the Netherlands. The model was calibrated using one year of continuous data to predict the seasonal variations of N<sub...

The study investigated the effects of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) on anaerobic sludge treating lipid-rich wastewater. It involved batch experiments with three sludge samples: two acclimated to lipids and one non-acclimated. The experiments aimed to observe the degradation of LCFA, specifically oleate and palmitate, by dosing them at...

Simulated ammonium sulfate scrubber effluent was treated using bipolar membrane electrodialysis (BPMED) to recover sulfuric acid for reuse in the scrubber, and ammonium hydroxide as a product, without using any chemicals. The effect of pH and temperature of the feed solution on the energy consumption of the BPMED and the purity of the...

Thermal hydrolysis process (THP) is a widely used pre-treatment method in the anaerobic digestion (AD) of waste municipal sewage sludge. A post AD dewatering step of the digestate produces a liquid stream called reject water. THP increases the concentration of humic substances (HSs) and nutrients in the produced reject water. Struvite...

A full-scale high-rate cascade anaerobic digestion (CAD) system was evaluated for its ability to enhance enzymatic sludge hydrolysis. The system included a newly built digester, innovatively divided into three pie-shaped compartments (500 m<sup>3</sup> each), followed by an existing, larger digester (1500 m<sup>3</sup>). The system treated a...

Faecal contamination across the lettuce value chain was assessed in Maputo, Mozambique. Escherichia coli was used as an indicator of faecal contamination, with concentrations ranging from 3.4 to 5.7 log units/100 ml in groundwater, river water and partially treated wastewater. Municipal tap water used to wash lettuce heads in the markets had...

This study investigates the effects, conversions, and resistance induction, following the addition of 150 μg·L<sup>−1 </sup>of two antibiotics, sulfamethoxazole (SMX) and trimethoprim (TMP), in a laboratory-scale micro-aerated anaerobic membrane bioreactor (MA-AnMBR). TMP and SMX were removed at 97 and 86%, indicating that micro-aeration did not...

This research investigated the contribution of wastewater-based nutrient supply, viz., nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K), for lettuce production in the Infulene Valley, Mozambique, from July to September 2019. The research was conducted in groundwater- and wastewater-irrigated agricultural plots. Water samples were collected...

This study reports the effects of microaeration on a laboratory-scale AnMBR (MA-AnMBR) fed with synthetic concentrated domestic sewage. The imposed oxygen load mimics the oxygen load coming from a dissolved air flotation (DAF) unit, establishing an anaerobic digester-DAF (AD-DAF) combination with sludge recycling. Results showed a reduced COD...

Biogas production from anaerobic sludge digestion plays a central role for wastewater treatment plants to become more energy-efficient or even energy-neutral. Dedicated configurations have been developed to maximize the diversion of soluble and suspended organic matter to sludge streams for energy production through anaerobic digestion, such...

Bovine serum albumin (BSA) and casein (CAS) were used in batch tests to compare the protein degradation in the presence and absence of carbohydrates and volatile fatty acids (VFAs). The modified Gompertz model was applied to estimate reaction rates. The results showed that deamination was the rate-limiting step, with a rate ranging between 2...

Thermal hydrolysis process (THP) is a well-established anaerobic digestion (AD) pre-treatment technology. Despite the THP benefits the pre-treatment increases the concentrations of nutrients and melanoidins in the digestate reject water after dewatering. The increased concentrations of nutrients and melanoidins formed during THP-AD can impact...

Full-scale thermal hydrolysis processes (THP) showed an increase in nutrients release and formation of melanoidins, which are considered to negatively impact methanogenesis during mesophilic anaerobic digestion (AD). In this research, fractionation of THP-sludge was performed to elucidate the distribution of nutrients and the formed...

Gas-mixing is commonly applied in anaerobic digesters, yet the resulting flow and hydraulic mixing are difficult to evaluate because of limited full-scale experimental data and uncertainties in integrating sludge rheological data. This study used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to assess the impact of treated sludge rheology on flow and...

Microalgae-bacteria biomass was digested through anaerobic digestion (AD) to produce biogas. Since microalgae typically have a more resistant cell wall than activated sludge (AS), its anaerobic biodegradability is limited. Therefore, three different pre-treatment techniques were evaluated for their effect on anaerobic biodegradability,...

Treating protein-rich wastewater using cost-effective and simple-structured single-stage reactors presents several challenges. In this study, we applied an anaerobic sequencing batch reactor (AnSBR) to treat protein-rich wastewater from a slaughterhouse. We focused on identifying the key factors influencing the removal of chemical oxygen...

Background: Elevated CO<sub>2</sub> partial pressure (pCO<sub>2</sub>) has been proposed as a potential steering parameter for selective carboxylate production in mixed culture fermentation. It is anticipated that intermediate product spectrum and production rates, as well as changes in the microbial community, are (in)directly influenced by...

This study evaluated the effects of sludge retention time (SRT) on the membrane filtration performance of an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) fed lipid-rich synthetic dairy wastewater. The membrane filtration performance was evaluated in two AnMBR systems operated at two different SRTs, i.e., 20 and 40 days. For the AnMBR operated at 40...

The pre-treatment of waste activated sludge (WAS) has become more common since it often results in improved bioconversion to methane, in both rate and extent. However, thorough insights on the possible effects and mechanisms of mild pre-treatment techniques, such as temperatures &lt;100 °C combined with the addition of H<sub>2</sub>O<sub>2<...
