During this session, attendees will receive an overview of a variety of carbon re-direction strategies through case studies, designs, and recent research and breakthroughs. Carbon re-direction aims to minimize the energy requirements of wastewater treatment through diversion of raw wastewater carbon to anaerobic digestion, which reduces the downstream aeration requirements associated with further treatment while maximizing biogas production. Such strategies are seen as a pathway to energy self-sufficient wastewater treatment, but a key challenge is often associated with managing carbon to nutrient levels in the effluent from the process such that downstream biological nutrient removal performance is not compromised. A large focus of this session reviews A-stage primary treatment, but other technologies, including a novel anaerobic MBR, will be discussed.
