AN+ Anaerobic Digestion System

AN+ Anaerobic Digester

In anaerobic digestion microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. The Keneco AN+ Anaerobic Digestor design effectively turns wastewater into green energy, power, and heat with extremely high efficiency, creating reliable, sustainable, and repeatable results in biological wastewater treatment.

System Overview

Anaerobic decomposition is a complex process. It occurs in three basic stages as the result of the activity of a variety of microorganisms. Initially, a group of microorganisms converts organic material to a form that a second group of organisms utilizes to form organic acids. Methane-producing (methanogenic) anaerobic bacteria utilize these acids and complete the decomposition process.

Features

  • Conditioning tank
  • Anaerobic sludge bed
  • Separator
  • Integrated controls

 

Benefits

  • Converts up to 95% of the organic (COD) load from high strength wastewater (above 400 mg/L to energy (methane).
  • Small footprint compared to conventional anaerobic reactors
  • Three phase separator produces high quality effluent with low TSS.
  • Automated process controls ensure adequate micronutrient addition, maintenance of optimum pH range, and required up-flow velocity.
