Anaerobic Digestion

Please join us for our One-Day Anaerobic Digestion Class. Indigo Water Group and WasteWater Technology Trainers have teamed up to create a one day anaerobic digestion training class. Like our popular Wastewater Cram, this course is loaded with great information.  Pair this class with Eric's fantastic course on Advanced Activated Sludge Process Control.

Meet the Instructor

Eric WahlbergAs WasteWater Technology Trainers' primary instructor, Eric Wahlberg is a rare breed: operator, engineer, and Ph.D. rolled up into one high-energy, dynamic presenter. His Math for Operators has been a highly attended offering at the Tri-State Conference for more than six years. The Water Environment Federation awarded Eric its 1995 Eddy Medal, given for outstanding research, its 1997 Gascoigne Medal, given for making a significant contribution to operations, and its 2007 Morgan Medal, given for making significant contributions to solving operations problems. Public Works identified Eric as a 2008 Trendsetter for the activated sludge process control and performance tests he has developed over the years. He has written and presented extensively and is a nationally renowned expert in primary and secondary clarifiers and activated sludge process control. 

Course Agenda

This course offers a comprehensive study of the mesophilic anaerobic digestion process.  After the objectives of anaerobic digestion and its biochemistry are discussed, anaerobic digesters and their associated equipment will be described.  Digester operations, operational parameters, and some common operational problems will be presented.  Work digester loading and process control calculations with the instructor and walk through two case studies as small group exercises where you diagnose two different process control failures.  In addition, new developments in anaerobic digestion such as thermophilic anaerobic digestion and its relationship to meeting Class A biosolids requirements will be discussed.
