Acid-phase and Two-phase Codigestion of FOG in Municipal Wastewater
(Virginia Tech, 2013-06-11)
Acidogenic codigestion of fats, oils, and greases (FOG) was studied at 37"C using suspended sludge digesters operated as sequencing batch reactors (SBRs). Volatile fatty acid (VFA) production was found to increase with ...
Effect of Long-Chain Fatty Acids on Anaerobic Digestion
(Virginia Tech, 2013-09-12)
An investigation was carried out to study whether long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) have an effect on digestion of waste sludge under anaerobic conditions. Four different kinds of LCFAs were used in this study. The 18 carbon ...
Characterization and treatment of organic matter, UV quenching substances, and organic nitrogen in landfill leachates
(Virginia Tech, 2013-06-14)
Landfill leachates are often treated on-site before disposal to municipal wastewater treatment plants, although variations in leachate composition and organic loading continue to have negative impacts on downstream treatment ...
