Webinar 170215: Is there life after DAF?

Advances in processing high solid / fat food wastes using anaerobic digestion


A Bioenergy Association and Bioenergy Australia joint webinar.   

Webinar presented by Alzbeta Bouskova, process engineer at ADI Systems Asia Pacific at 2pm (NZDT) on 15 February 2017

Currently, the most adopted treatment technology used to process wastewater from the food processing industry is chemically-assisted separation of solids and fats, using a technique known as Dissolve Air Flotation (DAF).  The effluent is either directly discharged, applied on land or polished using aerobic biological treatment withthe separated solids, DAF sludge, being disposed of. DAF is able to achieve high solids separation efficiency but the key challenges for successful DAF operation is an adequate upstream flow buffering while managing odour generation and disposal of the DAF sludge.
