The first in a series of webinars organised by IChemE's Environment Special Interest Group around the broad topic of 'air', this presentation examines anaerobic digestion. It is free of charge and open to all.
The webinar covers the principles of anaerobic digestion and how they are applied in different market sectors. It will explain the different parts of the process including the equipment involved and the underlying biochemistry resulting in the production of renewable energy and organic fertiliser.
Following the introduction the presentation will detail the engineering aspects of an anaerobic digestion plant highlighting the diversity of disciplines involved in a project. This will be presented with practical examples relating the objectives of each engineering task to the impact on the final product and its operation.
