Introduction to technology
The process undertaken in an anaerobic biological purificator consists of decomposing carbonous biological matter in the absence of oxygen. This type of treatment allows conversion of carbonous waste into sludge and gas, both are recoverable.
Approximately, half of the waste carbon goes into the final sludge, while the other half is transformed into gas, specifically, carbon dioxide and methane. This gas mixture is known as biogas. Both the processed sludge and biogas can be reused. The sludge, after a dehydration process, can be used as fertilizer or adobe for agriculture. The biogas, which is methane-rich, can be used to produce electricity through a cogeneration process.
Therefore, by means of the process undertaken in an anaerobic biological purificator, solid wastes are reduced almost by half and the resulting waste can be used as fertilizer for agricultural applications. Furthermore, biogas is generated, which can be used to produce electric power.
Condorchem Envitech provides a multidisciplinary group of experts to design, build and install any type of anaerobic purificator.
