    Abstract : The reduction of sludge volumes for disposal is a topic of high interest for wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) all over the world. Steadily increasing volumes for disposal create an economic, environmental, legislative and technological challenge. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anaerobic treatment of wastewater in a UASB reactor

    Author : Larisa Korsak; Luis Moreno; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Anaerobic treatment; UASB; granular biomass; methanogenic activity; modelling; axial dispersion; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The anaerobic treatment of waste water has been studied with an emphasis on the Up- flow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactor. A model to describe the processes occurring in a UASB reactor was developed and an experimental study of the anaerobic wastewater treatment systems in Nicaragua was also performed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Co-digestion of microalgae and sewage sludge - A feasibility study for municipal wastewater treatment plants
