SENTRY published in ES&E for real-time monitoring of enhanced anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas
SENTRY worked carred out in partnership with CNETE (Quebec, Canada) has been published in the Environmental Science and Engineering trade journal. The work was published in the August, 2019 issue and shows how the SENTRY platform was used to monitor biological activity in real-time in control and test anaerobic digestion systems.
The study used SENTRY monitoring sensors in two paralell AD rectors. The test AD reactors were supplied a pre-treated wastewater stream whereas the control reactor was supplied standard wastewater. The SENTRY platform was demonstrated to show clearly (1) the treatability of both wastewater streams, (2) the batch cycles for each reactor and (3) biological out-put was correlated to the biogas generated from both reactors.
