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.
Lessons learned from three years of working with full-scale anaerobic codigestion facilities were compiled and shared by Azura’s Dodge Yu and David Ellis at this year’s virtual WEFTEC 2020 conference. Dodge gave the presentation which summarized the observations, data gathered, and lessons learned during Azura’s years of working with farm-based anaerobic digesters in Ontario, Canada. The presentation covers feedstock handling, digester monitoring parameters, as well as digestate end product management.
