Title: A bio-hybrid anaerobic treatment of papaya processing wastes

Abstract

Hybrid anaerobic treatment of papaya processing wastes is technically feasible. At 30/sup 0/C, the optimal organic loading rates for maximizing organic removal efficiency and methane production are 1.3 and 4.8 g TCOD/1/day, respectively. Elimination of post-handling and treatment of digested effluent can also be achieved. The system is more suitable for those processing plants with a waste amount of more than 3,000 metric tons per year.

  • The total waste effluent from a typical canning plant is simply the combined flows from various in-plant processes. The research that is the subject of this chapter is concerned with developing a suitable method for treating these types of concentrated food wastes. As a concurrent possibility, it is also concerned with the production of methane as a by-product of the treatment method. The research is a consequence of extensive laboratory studies into many facets of anaerobic treatment of wastes of these types done by the National Research Council in Ottawa. Those studies, which have been described here and elsewhere involvedmore » small systems of various types with capacities up to 30 liters. This study, performed at Canadian Canners Research Centre in Burlington, Ontario, involved a single, anaerobic fixed-film reactor with a capacity of 125 liters. Its design and operation were guided by the earlier studies.« less
  • Short communication.
  • Interest in anaerobic biotechnology for the treatment of industrial wastes has grown considerably. Anaerobic biological waste treatment offers advantages over aerobic systems in terms of lower energy requirements, less biological sludge production, and the potential for energy recovery in the form of methane gas. The development of innovative reactor designs, based on the optimization of growth and retention of anaerobic microorganisms, has created an impetus to reevaluate the anaerobic treatability of many industrial waste streams. Data are presented to illustrate the potential applicability of anaerobic digestion for the treatment of a wide array of industrial process-waste streams, particularly those process-wastesmore » originating from the Organic Chemical Production Industry.« less
  • Three lab-scale reactors packed with Berl saddles were used to evaluate the treatment of poultry processing wastewater using an anaerobic fixed-film treatment process. The reactors were operated in upflow, downflow, and downflow-recycle modes to evaluate the effects of flow configuration. BOD/sub 5/, TSS, and FOG removal efficiencies remained high for the units with loading rates up to 5.6 kg TCOD/m/sup 3//day.
  • This paper describes a new process for treating mixed hazardous and radioactive waste, commonly called mixed waste. The process is called the Hybrid Treatment Process (HTP), so named because it is built on the 20 years of experience with vitrification of wastes in melters, and the 12 years of experience with treatment of wastes by the in situ vitrification (ISV) process.
