Laboratory Scale Thermal Hydrolysis Trial

Aqua Enviro possess a pilot scale thermal hydrolysis rig which can be used in combination with biochemical methane potential testing or a lab scale AD trial. To assess the amenability of a potential or current AD feedstock for thermal hydrolysis treatment.

Examples of what may be assessed using a laboratory scale thermal hydrolysis trial:-

  • Methane yield post treatment
  • substrate dewaterability following THP
  • Pathogen kill achievable
  • Effects of THP on the biodegradability of the feed material
  • feedstock rheology post treatment
  • Production of potential inhibitory substances
  • THP optimisation

Synonyms: THP, thermal hydrolysis process, AD pre-treatment, AD process modelling, AD treatability trial, AD optimisation trial
