Aqua Enviro Awarded UKWIR Co-digestion Project

Aqua Enviro in partnership with Atkins, have been appointed by UKWIR to carry out the SL13 Co-digestion Research Project.  This study aims to provide a comprehensive review of the opportunities and risks associated with the importation and treatment of waste by water companies.

Potentially suitable wastes will be identified, taking into account the quantities and locations of available material. Laboratory scale trials will then be carried out using a number of selected wastes to provide a comprehensive appraisal of the impact of co-digestion on process performance, biogas production and digestate quality.  This will include an assessment of combining advanced pre-treatment technologies with co-digestion.

The trial data will be used to help determine what charging mechanisms would need to be employed for the importation of wastes for treatment by co-digestion or by other means using water company assets.  The final report is due to be issued by UKWIR in 2011.
