UBC research team finds low-cost solution for sewage odour issues
June 15, 2018 by Journal of Commerce
Findings by a team of University of B.C. wastewater engineering researchers at the Okanagan campus have revealed a low-cost solution to many of the problems plaguing anaerobic digesters used by municipalities.
Anaerobic digesters are seen as a popular solution to wastewater treatment as they offer the potential for producing green energy and associated products.
Anaerobic digestion uses a series of biological micro-organism processes to break down wastewater material to produce biogas, which can then be combusted to generate electricity and heat, or can be further processed into renewable natural gas or transportation fuels. Dewatered material can also be used for compost. | READ MORE
