Implementing Food Waste Co‐digestion at Wastewater Treatment Plants: Planning and Operations - Part 2 - Live Webinar
Recorded On: 05/04/2021
- Registration Closed
Member fee: $38.00
Non-Member fee: $53.00
1.8 contact hours towards CWEA's Electrical / Instrumentation Technician, Environmental Compliance Inspector, and Mechanical Technologist certifications
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
• Review of factors influencing feasibility of co digestion with organic co substrates and long term planning considerations to balance sustainability and performance goals at resource recovery facilities.
• Learn about treatment technologies that may be implemented to improve handling of high strength waste (HSW).
• Recognize challenges associated with feedstock and how to address these challenges.
• Understand how microbial communities involved in the co digestion of wastewater residuals respond to different co substrates and operational conditions.
• Become familiar with operational factors that influence successful integration and optimization of co digestion practices.
