What's it about


The project activity involves the installation of a closed anaerobic wastewater treatment facility (Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket technology) at a starch manufacturing plant with a large output of waste water every day.

Before the installation of the project the wastewater in the plant was treated through cascading open lagoons with a retention time of more than a year.

The mix of the lagoon size, atmospheric and water temperature, resulted in an anaerobic environment in the ponds. These conditions led to methane generation from the organic content of the wastewater which was steadily released into the atmosphere.
