The Azura Associates team is sponsoring and presenting at the Value of Biogas West Conference in October 2023.
Registration is now open for the annual Marquette University short course on anaerobic treatment of high-strength industrial waste.
A case study of a full-scale food waste digester failure and recovery was presented at the Value of Biogas West Conference in Vancouver. This case study demonstrates the need for balance in anaerobic digester feedstock as too much of the coveted FOG can be problematic.
Azura’s experience with food waste anaerobic co-digestion (AnCoD) and our work at energy producing biogas plants was the basis for one of two podium presentations scheduled for the 2020 WEAO conference. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person conference and presentations were cancelled, luckily the papers were still published.
The third Getting to Net Zero Energy event was hosted by the Ontario Water Consortium in February of 2020. This event continued the momentum toward getting five municipal wastewater treatment facilities converted to net zero energy by focusing on anaerobic codigestion to produce biogas. The biogas produced through anaerobic digestion of comingled food waste, organic waste, and sewage biosolids can be used to produced renewable electricity, or purified to produce renewable natural gas (RNG).
Azura had 2 presentations accepted by WEAO and was schedule to be presented at the 2020 WEAO conference. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person conference and presentations were cancelled, but the papers were able to be published online. One of the presentations explored the possibility of establishing an advanced digester monitoring tool that could predict if the digester was susceptible to imminent failures or crashes.
