This session will focus on an advanced food waste digester project in California. It will discuss the approach and tools developed to assist with the decision making process: an interactive model for biogas yields, solids/biogas system, solids dewatering, and disposal (bottlenecks) for biogas master planning.
Understand the benefits and challenges of food waste co-digestion in California incentives, challenges and operational costs.
Determine the most suitable and beneficial biogas utilization option in connection with higher methane yields, biogas treatment and upgrading costs.
Determine equipment needs and costs for bioslurry receiving, processing and managing solids from food waste co-digestion and determine solids dewatering bottlenecks and costs.
