Sustainable waste water conversion to energy using specialised inocula
A growing demand for energy and concern over high CO2 emissions prompted a search for alternatives to conventional, aerobic wastewater treatment processes.
This session will discuss how anaerobic, low-temperature wastewater treatment can be used to reduce energy consumption and provide a viable alternative to applied aerobic systems. Examining lab-based and field examples it will highlight the significance of this work and the potential benefits to the rural community, in particular to the impacts of low temperature on the process.
