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 David Ellis presented a case study of helping a farm-based digester as a part of Dr. Daniel Zitomer’s anaerobic digestion online short course. The case study focused on the importance of testing and knowing what additional data to look for in digestor remediation. The study also shares some empirical guideline values for LCFA concentrations in digester as determined by years of LCFA testing done by Azura.
