Let’s Practice!

Let’s assume we would like to verify if the digester volume of 10m3 (without gas storage) is sufficient to treat 0.5m3/d of blackwater with TS of 1.3% and VS of 71 % of TS.

Please confirm that the organic loading rate (OLR) does not exceed the recommended specific OLR for the unmixed fixed dome digester of 0.75kgVS/m3d. The density of blackwater is 1000kg/m3.
